  Suede (band) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Suede was one of the most popular and important bands from the UK in the 90s, and helped start the Britpop movement of the decade.
The band was finally getting the mass video and radio play that they lacked during the Dog Man Star period and in many ways fulfilling the hype that characterized much of the early part of their career.
The band were well respected for their b-sides, which were often regarded by critics and fans as being close to or equal to the quality of the a-sides they backed.

Suede were everywhere by this point and journalists began writing things like " the most audacious, mysterious, perverse, sexy, ironic, hilarious, cocky, melodramatic and downright mesmerising band you're ever likely to fall in love with" without so much as a tongue or a cheek in sight.
Concurrently Suede singles "Metal Mickey" and "Animal Nitrate"went to 17 and 7 in the charts respectively and a lengthy stint of Suedemania ensued; by the time Suede got to play their home town again (London, to you) Brett had his shirt ripped off by over-enthusiastic fans.
When Suede closed 1997 with their fanclub-only show at London's Forum, Melody Maker were forced to admit that "no other band in the world could get away with playing an entire set of b-sides".

Suede released a series of three excellent singles before their stunning self-titled debut album, which went on to win the Mercury Music Prize (the highest musical prize you can receive in the UK—think "Grammy") in 1993.

Brimming to the surface of the disparate elements in the band's music is a unanimous love of funk and soul rhythms.
If the band does well, all members maintain that they'd like to make a go of it, but a combination of college plans and general restlessness will probably see Girls in Suede headed out of town, most likely separately.
