Suede Coming Up (Nude) Queen Elizabeth Stadium went wild on the first of two sell-out gigs by indie-rock popsters Suede, when they toured this album. They've been one of the few non-mainstream pop acts to strike a chord in the local contemporary music fan psyche. That vibrant stage set can almost be felt in this, the British band's third studio album, which has a live feel. Film Star has plenty of reverberating guitar and swagger in lead singer Brett Anderson's vocals that are delivered a little too close to the microphone. Lazy Slouches slips further into grunge pop rock. Amid the catchy numbers, such as Beautiful Ones, come aural wind-downs. Slowing the tempo to rock ballad level, By the Sea is typical of the band's warm sound, with sinister undercurrents: 'It's by the sea we'll bleed/Into the sea we'll bleed', goes the chorus. Less morose is Saturday Night, the biggest-selling single from the album. This was the first album with guitarist Richard Oakes writing the songs after Bernard Butler's departure. The signature Suede character is still there, if somewhat more commercial-sounding: indie pop rock, with a glam rock edge.
