It was great to read something written by someone who knows more about Suede than I do! :o) Some fascinating tit-bits in there. The musical sound of Coming Up is more accessible than previous album Dog Man Star. Its singles were much more successful than those of their second LP, while the lyrical content concerns the band's disaffection at the mid-90s hedonistic, celebrity-obsessed culture; " Beautiful Ones" and "She" are caricatures of British yuppies, celebrities and heroin-chic models. "Beautiful Ones" was originally titled "Dead Leg" after Osman threatened to give Oakes a dead leg if he was unable to write a top ten single. [9] According to Anderson, "The Chemistry Between Us" is about "the emptiness of it all", when it comes to taking drugs with strangers who have no common ground other than being high on drugs. [10] The main refrain of the song is " Class A, Class B, is that the only chemistry between us." Houle, Zachary (29 July 2014). "Basement: Further Sky EP". PopMatters.

In the autumn of 1995, the band was joined by new member Neil Codling, a cousin of Gilbert who played keyboards and second guitar. His first appearance was at a fanclub gig at the Hanover Grand on 27 January 1996, which turned out to be one of Suede's most important gigs. A short set devoid of Butler songs was well received by critics, "A set that says. 'No Need'," observed Steve Sutherland in NME. [55] Even before Dog Man Star was released, bassist Mat Osman told Select magazine in September 1994 that he wanted to move on from the regimented recording process and expansive multi-layered guitar sounds of that era and focus on more radio-friendly pop music; citing " Losing My Religion" by R.E.M. as a song that "doesn't show off in the slightest and is still brilliant." [56] Anderson had a similar outlook, saying that in contrast to the band's previous albums, which he felt "suffered at certain times from being quite obscure," he intended the forthcoming album to be "almost like a 'greatest hits'." [32] Suede's third album, Coming Up, was released September 1996 and was preceded by the successful lead single, " Trash" in July. The single was popular and tied with "Stay Together" as the band's highest-charting UK single, reaching number three. [23] The album would become the band's biggest mainstream success, earning the band five straight top-10 singles and becoming a hit throughout Europe, Asia and Canada. Coming Up never did win an audience in America, partially because it appeared nearly a year after its initial release and partially because Suede only supported it with a three-city tour. [9] The tour was not helped by problems in Boston, Massachusetts, in which the band's music equipment was stolen, leaving them to play remaining shows with acoustic guitars. [57] Nevertheless, the album topped the UK chart and became the band's biggest-selling release, [23] setting expectations high for the follow-up. With the success of the album, Suede secured top billing at the 1997 Reading Festival. Suede's next release was Sci-Fi Lullabies, a collection of B-sides, which reached number nine on the UK Album Chart. [23] The compilation was well-received, with disc one of two being described by critics as the band's strongest collection of songs.

The album ends on a sweet note, with the earnest Saturday night (“Whatever makes her happy…”). The video for this (included on the DVD) stars Keeley Hawes from UK TV’s Spooks and Ashes to Ashes.

Suede wow crowd at farewell gig". BBC. Archived from the original on 27 October 2021 . Retrieved 10 April 2013. Tras la marcha de Bernard Butler Suede lograron sobrevivir reinventándose con un sonido mucho más poppie y pegadizo, cercano al mismo britpop, sin que eso implique sonar como Oasis o Blur, pero lejos también del melodrama de 'Dog Man Star' y 'Suede'. Richard Oakes es un guitarrista eficaz y competente, pero no especialmente imaginativo y a veces el grupo parece sonar con el piloto automático y se notó mucho la ausencia de Butler.
