Former Suede frontman Brett Anderson has revealed he would consider reforming his old band.
Suede To Reform?
Brett Anderson has hinted Suede will reform.
The rocker says the iconic British group, which disbanded in 2002, have remained in contact and he won't rule out performing again with his bandmates - bassist Mat Osman, guitarist Richard Oakes, drummer Simon Gilbert and guitarist Bernard Butler.
He said: "I'd quite like to make a band record again, my last few have just been me in the studio with a piano. I can't say whether I'd get back with Suede or not. I email Simon and Mat often and Bernard I see occasionally for a chat. There's no bad blood. It ended like most bands end, because it got a bit boring. There's no punch-up like a TV show or anything, I just wasn't finding my creative thing being in the band."
Despite his hint he could reunite Suede, Brett is unimpressed by the recent spate of musical reunions, including that of former 90s Britpop rivals Blur.
The singer - who performed at Jack Daniel's birthday JD set at Londonâs Village Underground venue last night (08.10.09) along with former Libertines rocker Carl Barat and Reverend and The Makers frontman Jon McClure - added to BANG Showbiz: "It's making money, isn't it? Everyone's got bills to pay."
The 'Animal Nitrate' hitmakers released five albums, but 42-year-old Brett believes they should have called time on their career earlier.
He said: "We made one Suede album too many. 'A New Morning' is the only one I don't believe in as much as the other Suede records and I totally believed in the first four, even 'Head Music' which divided the fans."
