Product Description

Product Description

Suede recruited 17-year-old guitarist Richard Oakes, following the departure of Bernard Butler. Oakes joined for the "Dog Man Star" tour, after which the band returned to the studio to record their third album. At this point they also enlisted keyboard player Neil Codling. The resulting album, issued in 1996, spawned five top ten singles and is their biggest-selling album. This re-mastered deluxe edition features the non-album b-sides as well as demos from the collections of Brett Anderson, Richard Oakes and Neil Codling, including a previously unreleased song.

The DVD features the previously unreleased concert video "Live At The Roundhouse", filmed in December 1996, and featuring a guest appearance from Neil Tennant. Also featured is "Suede in Paris", a newly-discovered full-length film of Richard Oakes' first ever concert with the band in October 1994! The bonus feature is a February 2011 interview with Brett, Richard and Neil about the making of the album, along with a short film put together by Simon Gilbert from his own contemporary camcorder footage.

The booklet contains a specially-written note by Brett Anderson, along with all the lyrics, hand-written lyric drafts, tape boxes, and previously unpublished photos from the collections of both the band and their friends.

BBC Review

"Pick a fight with Suede, you gonna pick a fight with the Suede fanbase," warned Matt Lucas on Shooting Stars in 1997. Leave aside the fact that Lucas was then dressed as a menacing man-baby: the truly surreal thing about this pop culture nugget is its target. Suede, suburbia’s moodiest, druggiest misfits, were now so mainstream-famous that they could be knowingly mocked on primetime, thanks to their biggest album yet, the hit-rammed, melody-overloaded Coming Up.

Fifteen years later, it seems obvious that Britpop’s John the Baptists would rise from the grave to claim some of the rewards being lavished on lesser lights like Kula Shaker and Shed Seven, but it wasn't at the time. Despite their punchy 1993 debut generating a whirlwind of hype, the loss of wunderkind guitarist Bernard Butler and the sprawling darkness of 1994’s subsequent Dog Man Star read like a two-part commercial suicide note. Replacing Butler with a teenage fanboy and the drummer’s cousin was hardly encouraging.

Yet amongst the B sides, lost songs and demos lovingly collected in this third lavish re-issue from the Suede back catalogue (the compilers clearly taking Matt Lucas’ threat seriously) lies the first clue that everything was about to go magically right. Together, a 1994 B side, was the first collaboration between Brett Anderson and new guitarist, Richard Oakes: its shamelessly poppy ebullience, fizzy guitars and breezy bubblegum vocal created a blueprint for the album which followed.

And what a dazzling, spangly pop album Coming Up, remains, made shinier still by expert remastering. Anderson cites the surging outsiders anthem Trash as the pinnacle, but Beautiful Ones is more remarkable, the urgent, knotty wordplay of its verses giving way to an ecstatic chorus which embodies the album's title (the demo fascinatingly reveals that the song began life as Beatles-y whimsy). That these big pop beasts were interspersed with savage melodramas like She and swooning love songs like Picnic by the Motorway made Coming Up more alluring and enduring.

In retrospect, the seeds of the band's later decline were also planted here. The blandly anthemic Saturday Night paved the way for later FM fluff, while the B sides soon plummeted from air-punching (Every Monday Morning Comes) to scab-scratching (These Are the Sad Songs). But let’s dwell on Suede's sad decay when their last two albums are re-issued: for now, this fan-dream edition of Coming Up captures a band that still seemed capable of anything.

I've had this cd since its first release in 1996 and i have to say its still a great piece of work, very uplifting. Every album seems in some way to be different, with Coming Up i thought this was the pinnacle of their efforts, everyone will have a favourite suede cd but i must say this is my favourite out of the lot and i own them all, and still 10 years on (from first release) i still listen to them, this cd keeps finding its way back on the stereo or pc.
This cd is well worth the money and time to listen to and is in my opinion a classic.
A+++

Coming Up is a wonderful album. If you love great, guitar driven pop, buy it. Despite the 'critical consensus' that Suede were rubbish once Bernard Butler left, this album is very good and it is unsurprising that it was Suede's most successful (commercially speaking) album. It is worth buying just for the Beautiful Ones, let alone the delicate piano-driven By the Sea and the wonderful Trash.

The gaudy neon chic of the album cover is highly evocative of the immaculate and polished songs that make their appearance on Suede's third album 'Coming up', and most notably their first album in the absence of Bernard Butler. This is an album that is frequently under rated in favour of its two predecessors, a judgement which is in my opinion slightly unfair. This is an excellent album that contains some real anthemic songs such as 'Trash', 'Filmstar', 'She' and 'Beautiful Ones'. Whilst this album is more 'Pop' than other Suede albums, the band remain true to their origins singing about low-rent glamour in an urban world. One of the best albums to be generated from the 'Britpop' phenomenon, and a necessity to any indie fans cd collection!

This contains many of the best Suede tracks. I remember going to see them in Poole (Oakes' hometown gig) early in 1997 and it remains one of the best gigs I have seen due to the strength of the new material. The record is Suede uncomplicating their sound and reinventing their muse and thus sounding ace. Being a short album all of the tracks are very significant and it is the most immediate of all their work. 'Trash' is classic Suede and, although Butler criticized the song, is tremendously uplifting in an apathetic manner. 'The Chemistry Between Us' is superb, hinting at both decadent love and schooldaze innocence owing to cleverly worded lyrics. The guitar, bass and drums are consistently vibrant and imaginative and Brett's voice is distinctive as ever. A triumph.

Since its release this has been one of the albums that I have played again and again. It is so listenable and has great, catchy tunes on there.
Not as deep and dark as the first albums, but all the better for it in my opinion.
In my university years everyone seemed to have this CD and they all liked it :)
A must for any decent music collection.

Is there a singer with a more distinctive voice than Brett Anderson? This was the album that really brought Suede back to the attention of the UK public. As part of a generation that was not fully aware of this group, I am so very grateful that this album was released.
The first track is Trash, a song that is as identifiable as they come, and for me any song that contains the word 'kookiness' without trying too hard must be a winner, the vocals are superb whilst the lyrics perhaps have a hidden meaning, but are very poppy and catchy. This is continued with the next song 'Filmstar'; another offering that showcases Anderson's wonderfully different and compelling voice.
The highlight of the album has to be the relaxed and distinctive 'By The Sea', a very different sound to most of the tracks on this album, but just as recognisable as being Suede, and I would be surprised if anybody hated this song - a great track.
The other songs worth mentioning are the uplifting 'Beautiful Ones', again made into a great song with the vocals, but upon listening to the lyrics it can be perceived as quite a dark song - that was my understanding anyway. It was released, and unquestionably a hit for the group - and perhaps the anthem of this album. Whilst 'Picnic by the Motorway' again shows a different perspective of the group and is unconventional, a brilliant track.
A brilliant album to re-introduce this group to a new audience, never have I been so impressed to buy a back catalogue based on one album - but this did it for me. Superb.

A fantastic return to form from a fantastic band! With this album, Suede proved all their detractors wrong and simply blew away the critics by producing ten of the best rock/pop tracks for years. The singles from the album speak for themselves - the glorious, dewy-eyed 'Trash', the melancholy 'Saturday Night', the glam-tastic 'Film Star' and the utterly unmatched 'Beautiful Ones' - with tracks like these, the album almost sounds like a Best Of.
Lyrically, Brett reaches a peak here, culminating in the superb poetry of 'Beautiful Ones' ('cracked up, stacked up, twenty-two, psycho for sex and glue, lost it to Bostik') in which all the images and ideas of the last two albums are perfectly sharpened and distilled.
Coming Up also showcases the musical ability of nineteen-year-old Richard Oakes, who coolly brushes aside the guitar-hero posturing of Bernard Butler to bring about a tighter, pared-down sound focusing on songs rather than solos and injecting the band with a new energy.
Never has a band faced such adversity and bounced back so convincingly. Suede are heroes.
