Wot no New Morning? PLUS! Reissues due

After news that Suede have decided things are still "special" and they're going to play Festivals (including the Coachalla polo court and tanning salon) this summer, the group have just announced that they'll be taking over Brixton Academy for three nights in May. There, they'll play their first three albums in full, Suede on May 19th, Dog Man Star on the 20th and Coming Up on the 21st. Tickets go on sale next Friday. The band are also reissuing all of their albums with bonus tracks - some of which have been previously unheard. The band have been remastering the records with former guitarist Bernard Butler. Says Brett Anderson: "This is the definitive collection of pretty much everything we released in 14 years together – and some stuff which we didn’t. It’s all re-mastered and includes unreleased, never-before-heard oddities and gems which even I'd forgotten about. It's the complete audio history of a band and, like any band of interest, it's flawed, strange and sometimes beautiful".
