About Playlist

Brit Pop of the 90s was not exclusively dominated by Oasis and Blur, England was full of treasures, offering different takes on the genre. Formed in London in 1989, Suede is one of these different groups. The band led by Brett Anderson on vocals and Bernard Butler on guitar had one idol and obsession: Bowie. An influence that is at the heart of their eponymous album, released in March 1993. A record that reached the top of the charts and even won the prestigious Mercury Prize. Thirty years and ten albums later, the band is still very much alive and active, despite having been on a 7 year hiatus in 2003 after the commercial failure of the album "A New Morning". In great shape since their return in 2013 with 'Bloodsports', Suede celebrated their longevity with a compilation album, 'Beautiful Ones: The Best of Suede 1992-2018' and they are back today at the top of their game with the very catchy 'Autofiction'. Here is our own ‘best of Suede’, consisting of 55 essential tracks. Photo © Roger Sargent

Britpop in 10 Albums

by Charlotte Saintoin, Translated by Jack Butler

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.

Supergrass - I Should Coco (1995)
I Should Coco didn’t sound like anything else that was going on – Oasis sounded like they were on Mogadon compared with it. We soon got lumped in with Britpop though.” This is the view that Gaz Coombesonly 19 at the release of Supergrass’ debut album, holds today. Behind this striking album cover lied one of the greatest albums of the decade, selling over 1 million copies worldwide, half of which were sold in the UK. The trio, comprised of Gaz Coombes, Danny Goffey on drums and Mick Quinn on the bass, caught the eye of Parlophone following the release of their single Caught by the Fuzz on the independent label Backbeat, and in 40 minutes their debut album encapsulated the punk pop spirit inherited from The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, The Jam and Buzzcocks. Alright serves as the anthem of this album from which a candid and incandescent freshness emerges. "We are young, we run green / Keep our teeth nice and clean / See our friends, see the sights / Feel Alright", Gaz repeats. In contrast to Radiohead's sunken melancholy, Supergrass brought us some electric rejuvenation.

Oasis - (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? (1995)
Liam got a Rolex. I got a Rolls Royce. Which is brilliant, cos I can't drive and Liam can't tell the time.” Sitting at the top of the charts and on the glossy pages of magazines, the megalomaniacal Gallagher brothers continued their rise with (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? after having achieved their rock-star status as promised in Definitely Maybe (Rock’n’roll star). Alan White replaced Tony McCaroll on drums while Owen Morris was sent to production. Despite a serious altercation between Noel and Liam, the recording was quickly completed. Beginning with Hello, this follow-up album contains one rock anthem after another, all written by Noel. It is on this famous record that we find the cult hits Wonderwall, Don't Look Back in Anger, Some Might Say and Champagne Supernova with a solo by Paul Weller. Between saturated rock, pop treasures and bare ballads, Noel – who kept all compositions to himself until 2 weeks before the sessions – outdid himself. (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? is a more refined opus that’s richer and just as loud as the previous, from the piano of Don't Look Back in Anger to the strings of Wonderwall and the harmonica of The Swamp Song. With 15 million albums sold - a result Alan McGee had predicted - Morning Glory gave birth to Oasismania, from which the Gallaghers would never get away.

Pulp - Different Class (1995) 
1995 was the ultimate year for Britpop. It was the year of the release of Different Class and the hit Common People, in which Jarvis Cocker wrote about the unhealthy fascination for the working-class exhibited by the Greek woman he was hitting on. Cocker and Pulp were not born into Britpop and had in fact existed almost twenty years earlier. In Sheffield, 1978, Jarvis and his band were putting out records without any success, missing out on their breakthrough with every meeting. With His "N' Hers (the production of which was hated by Cocker), but especially with Different Class, his fifth effort, Pulp finally started surfing a wave that took them a long way. Taking a stark look at class struggles, the album mixes English pop, protean disco (Disco 2000), 6-minute long synthetic experiments (F.E.E.E.L.I.N.G.C.A.L.L.E.D.L.O.V.E) and the glam rock of Bowie and Roxy Music to create a perfect formula ready to be gobbled up by the Britpop phenomenon. With Bill Brummond having refused, Chris Thomas was on production, and he made magic, especially on Common People which Cocker had half-heartedly drafted on a small Casio. True outsiders with the world listening, Pulp, with their disorientating pop and raw, sexually charged lyrics, became an unfiltered voice and one of the most sharp and fascinating groups of a strange era.

Suede – Coming Up (1996)
With the competition being dominated by Blur and Oasis, Suede were doing everything they could to stay out of this sphere which they considered too structured. Despite this, Brett Anderson still believes they were very much part of it. After Suede (1993) and Dog Man Star (1994), guitarist Bernard Butler left the South London combo following disagreements in the middle of the recording process, tearing apart the dynamic duo. Regardless, the pale, slender and decadent Brett Anderson shined with the highly successful Coming Up, including the brilliant tracks Trash and Beautiful Ones, as well as Filmstar, Lazy the 7 minutes of romantic pop that is The Chemistry Between Us. Undeniably inspired by Bowie and the glam rock of the 70s, this third opus moves away from the complex darkness of the previous records to an abundance of high-pitched riffs and dramatic touches. This is an album that almost crosses over to punk, with its cult cover being designed by Peter Saville, who, alongside Joy Division, was Anderson’s childhood hero. 

The Verve - Urban Hymns (1997)
Is Bitter Sweet Symphony the very quintessence of The Verve? Inspired by the Stones, this hit didn’t do much for Richard Ashcroft's band other than give them a lawsuit against Allen Klein, founder of ABKCO records which also houses Jagger's music. The Verve had redeemed the rights to use The Stones' The Last Time (which already included the Staples Singers), but Klein felt they had drawn too deep and claimed royalties for the song. But this isn’t the only good song to come out of Urban Hymns, which came about following the trip-hop wave. For this album, Ashcroft and the other members of The Verve lifted their noses off the coke table for a while. The group’s arrangements elegantly paint a picture of English melancholy, punctuated by fluffy mornings (Velvet Morning) that drugs can’t sweeten (The Drugs Don't Work). First shoegaze with A Storm in Heaven, then funk on A Northern Soul, The Verve went whichever way the wind took them. Between the leisurely pop of Oasis (Lucky Man, Weeping Willow) and the heavy pop of Radiohead (Space and Time), The Verve retained their melodic heritage, made of bombastic arrangements and effect pedals (The Rolling People), as testified by the 15-minute long Come On/Deep Freeze. Released at the dusk of Britpop, Urban Hymns rekindled the flame a few moments before it went out for good.
