Suede- S/T (1993) Deluxe Edition (Bonus Disc + DVD Audio Rip) MP3 & FLAC

"I was born as a pantomime horse, ugly as the sun when he falls to the floor."

Suede always seemed an odd choice for poster boys of the "Brit-Pop" movement; far more rooted in early-seventies Glam than mid-sixties guitar-pop, far more gloomy Manchester than jingle-jangle "Madchester," few bands had inspired as much hype before releasing their debut album (including being featured on the front cover of Melody Maker), and fewer still had ever delivered on the hype the way Suede did. Quite literally marrying the androgyny & excess of Ziggy-era Bowie to the dark working-class romanticism of The Smiths, Brett Anderson, Bernard Butler & co. couldn't have been more out of step with the music trends dominating London and America during the early-nineties; however, Suede possessed a magnetic stage presence that was rare in an era known for its shoegazing. As one music journalist put it: "They had charm, aggression, and [...] if not exactly eroticism, then something a little bit dangerous and exciting." After parting ways with original member Justine Frischmann who would later resurface as the lead singer of Elastica, Suede issued a slew of successful singles throughout 1992 and early 1993 before releasing its eponymous debut album, which promptly became the most successful debut in British music history (only to be eclipsed by Oasis a year later). Drenched in the same literate nihilism, polymorphous perversity, and theatrical pretensions that made Bowie's early work feel so dangerously compelling, Suede, nevertheless, has a distinctive feel all its own due to the palpable creative tension between Anderson and Butler that is evident throughout the album, a dynamic rivalry, somewhat reminiscent of Morrissey and Johnny Marr, that would result in Butler's acrimonious exit the following year. From brilliant Glam-anthems such as "So Young" and "The Drowners" to the sultry gloom of songs such as "Pantomime Horse" and "Sleeping Pills," Anderson's preening, "mockney" lead vocals intricately intertwine with Butler's lush, molten lava guitar leads, spinning a web of hazy, melancholy decadence that lends the music a certain sense of grandeur dressed up in Punk attitude and Glam-inspired androgyny. Regarding the latter, Anderson, like Bowie before him, sensed the mystique of ambiguity: "Too much music is about a very straightforward sense of sexuality [....] Twisted sexuality is the only kind that interests me. The people that matter in music [...] don't declare their sexuality. Morrissey never has and he's all the more interesting for that."

Suede- "Animal Nitrate" Video (1993)


  1. Thanks but the 2nd link is the same as the 1st (FLAC)...

  2. thanks la luna, been wanting this for some time now.

  3. Ouups ! Forget the first post ...

  4. Thanks - love this album so am looking forward to hearing the bonus material.

  5. Don't know this band as I was into XTC during the 90's and then Oasis so I too look forward to giving this a good listen. Btw, I have been stuck on Wire - Send of late. Great car tunes.

  6. I've been planning to post all the Suede deluxe reissues but it seems you are one step ahead of me sir:)

  7. I don't really give a rat's ass about a band's political, religious, sexual practices as long as the tunes are killer. It is fun to play the Cure and the Smiths for uptight metal heads and watch the confusion and dread of liking something not approved by the metal scene police. Good music is good music all the genre classifications are for record store clerks and critics. BTW do you have any Parliament like Mothership Connection or Clones of Dr. Funkenstein? Also The Eat-Communist Radio is one that is hard to find in lossless. Thanks for your choice selections and carry on. :o)

  8. Ralph Dodger, it's nice to have all thr b-sides and stray tracks rounded up in one location, and sonically, they sound pretty good to me

  9. scurfie, let me know what you think of Suede

  10. leakingwater, I'm going to post "Dog Man Star" here in a few days but do you want to take care of "Coming up" on PPP?

  11. Groove-A-Lax, I'll see what I have by Parliament in the archives ASAP

  12. WOW! Thanks so much!

  13. Anon., my pleasure. "Dog Man Star" coming very soon

  14. Sure I'll post "Coming Up" and "Head Music" on PPP! I think I'll just leave out "A New Morning" becaus it's just a total train wreck...

  15. leakingwater, sounds great. Did "Head Music" get released as a deluxe edition?

  16. leakingwater, I'm looking forward to your "Head Music" post on PPP!

  17. Thanks! This is really interesting not what I expected at all.

  18. scurfie, you're welcome. I'll post their brilliant second album in a few days.

  19. I believe that Take Care is in fact an improvement of the standard formula Drake has made for himself for constructing an album. It will by no means change the minds of nay sayers, nor will it make his fans love him any less. Its just more of the same thing that made him successful. Hopefully he will learn to expand his horizons a bit in the near future and talk about different things (he got a good start with his touching tribute to his mom on Look What You've Done") but I wont get my hopes up. But as long as he's putting out quality music, I'm not too bothered by it. If you like Drake, pick up a copy, its worth it.

  20. Disc I: Suede (2011 Remaster) Part II = Link unavailable. Please fix. Thanks :)

  21. These look too good to miss. Could you please, please re-post them on rapidshare or another option, since megaupload was shut down? It would be GREATLY appreciated.
