Suede: "Nothing Can Stop Us Now"

Simon Price, Melody Maker, 24 September 1994

When Bernard Butler left SUEDE, many assumed it was all over. Far from it. On the eve of the release of the long-awaited Dog Man Star LP, SIMON PRICE finds Brett Anderson feeling invincible, and motormouthing about sex, cocaine, curry, latex, leotards, being clever, being dumb, being effeminate, pistols and phalluses, Britpop, tapdancers and suburban hell... and meets New Kid On The Suede Block, Richard Oakes.
