So aside from writing some of the greatest songs of the ’90s with his band Suede, for some reason Brett Anderson is fairly disregarded when it comes to remembering the ‘pretty boys of Britpop’ (hello Damon Albarn), but I’m here to rectify this and set the record straight.
Justine Frischmann (Elastica) dumped Brett for Damon Albarn (Blur) in the early ’90s before Suede hit the big time. This fueled one of the most famous feuds in the Britpop genre (the biggest one being, of course, the whole Oasis vs. Blur thing) but the love triangle was still huge news.
Whilst there’s no doubt that Damon Albarn is undeniably attractive (those eyes!) – I can’t help but feel that Brett is overshadowed and underrated due to Damon and Blur. Suede are a great, fantastic band – one of my absolute favourites – so here… I’ve attached links to five of my favourite Suede songs. Check them out and let me know what you think: Trash, The Beautiful Ones, Everything Will Flow, Saturday Night, and Metal Mickey.
Anyway… Without further ado, grace your eyes upon the ethereal creature that is Brett Anderson…
Have I made my point yet? Do you need any more convincing?
