From the Publisher:

When they appeared on the British rock scene in the early 1990s—a bastard fusion of the Smiths and Ziggy Stardust—MELODY MAKER instantly declaimed them “The Best New Band in Britain.” At the time, the group—based around flamboyant vocalist Brett Anderson and guitarist Bernard Butler—hadn’t released one note of music. What followed was an eponymous album that was to become the fastest–selling debut in British musical history, as well as a decade of narcotic excess, redemption, and fantastic pop music. Now fully updated to include the inside story of the band’s decision to split and Brett’s new solo ventures, Suede: Love and Poison traces the scarcely credible story of a band that went to hell and back. David Barnett was part of Suede’s management team for more than eight years.

Review:

"'Book of the Month' - The Observer; 'Excellent account of one of the most interesting UK bands of the 1990s' - Record Collector; 'Arse-slapping, smack-jacking, crack-snorting, Blur-bashing, Bowie-lovin' fun from Britpop's favourite blouse-wearing mincer and his band of merry men. A far more enjoyable and far less sanitised romp than you might expect from an authorised biog' - X-Ray; 'One of the best rock biographies ever... the inside story of one of the most talented and depraved bands in British history.' - Domestic Terrorist; 'A rock biog worth spending some quality time with' - Marie Claire"
