4.0 out of 5 stars A lucky find!, 26 Feb 2013
It was Spotify's fault, as I had never heard of Wolverine, and came across them through Spotify's "Related Artists" while listening to a Leprous release.

While the remastered and deluxe edition of Suede's eponymous debut covered all the b-sides already compiled on Sci-Fi Lullabies, and the odd one which escaped that compilation, the b-sides for New Generation appear to have been left off this remasterd and deluxe edition of Dog Man Star. I presume this is because they were the first… Read more
