Tells the story of Suede, from its early beginnings and instant tag of the 'new saviours of rock n' roll', through lead singer Brett Anderson's relationship with Justine Frischmann who transferred her affections to rival band Blur's Damon Albarn to the arrival of guitar supremo Bernard Butler and the ensuing chart-topping singles.
After being advised by his English teachers that he would "get nowhere with that attitude", David Barnett quit school at 17, determined to write about pop music. He landed a job with Jackie, but was immediately transferred to action comic Commando. He caught Suede by chance on The Chart Show and dedicated his efforts to creating the ultimate Suede fanzine, Suave & Elegant. The band liked it so much they asked him to work for them and he has spent ten years following their every move, being privy to the kind of secrets that will astonish even the most devoted Suedehead.
