Brett Lewis Anderson (born 29 September 1967) is an English singer-songwriter best known as the lead vocalist of the band Suede. After Suede disbanded in 2003, he briefly fronted The Tears, and has released four solo albums. Anderson is known for his distinctive wide-ranging voice and during Suede's early days, an androgynous appearance. Suede reformed in 2010.
There's a fair bit of self-indulgence here, but the former Suede leader has a way with these things, and the result is generally listenable. Like the much underrated "Here Come The Tears" I think this will be an album that the faithful few will hold dar to their heats, and the general public will never really get. For me, it's a classic.
Anderson is currently back in the Far East, speaking to Uncut as he overlooks Kowloon Harbour, preparing for solo dates. Later in the year he’ll be in London for a big O2 show with Suede (sans original guitarist Bernard Butler, although the two remain good friends). I wanted to check out what the stage was like at the O2 Arena, he says. And the guy doing it is obviously a bit of a Suede fan, because there are some very detailed references to b-sides and bla-di-blah. I can’t exactly complain about it without coming across as a real tit. It’s just fun and no-one really thinks it’s me, it’s a cartoon version of me reflected through some fairground mirror. Brett, you’re from Haywards Heath. What’s the deal with the swimming pool there? It’s deep in the middle, not at one end. What’s your take on that? And were you ever caught out by it?
This is basically also what Brett Anderson tells me with the release of his first solo record. Granted, in the pantheon of Britpop-era sex gods (there's a scary visual), Anderson seemed the most impotent of the bunch; witness his now-famous quip about being a bisexual who'd never had a homosexual experience. Nonetheless, there was a time where Anderson's sexuality was his main currency, and it was powerful enough- even in its messiness- to provide the charge for two, maybe even three, great albums. That ember's charcoal now, and has been for a while
Brett Anderson was born in West Sussex in 1967. He was the lead singer with the band Suede from 1989 until they split in 2002. The band released five albums, including a Mercury prize-winning debut and the chart-topping Coming Up in 1996. Following their split, Anderson and Suede guitarist Bernard Butler formed The Tears, but since 2006 he has focused on solo work, releasing four albums. The latest, Black Rainbows, is out now.
