Suede - Suede worried reunion wasn't working

Suede worried their reunion wasn't working.

The Britpop group reformed in 2010 for a one-off charity show, but then decided to tour and write new music, but initially struggled to find their place in the current music scene before realising they didn't need to reinvent themselves.

Frontman Brett Anderson said: ''I was worried for a while that the reunion wasn't clicking. We played in Russia and it didn't feel right - there were seven new songs and we were trying to reinvent the sound of the band. Then we decided to just sound like Suede.''

However, when the group - who will release new album 'Bloodsports' later this month - decided to work on new songs, they didn't want to sound exactly the way they did before.

Drummer Mat Osman told The Guardian newspaper: ''We didn't want to be comfortable, playing the same stuff. That was the death of the band in the first place.''

Brett also insisted former guitarist Bernard Butler - who is now a successful producer - has no desire to rejoin the group, and he doesn't think the band would work if he did.

He said: ''For me, this version of Suede is the one that works. I had lunch with Bernard a few months ago and he said, 'How are you doing?' I said we were making a new album and he said, 'Wow, that's great.' ''
