More wonderful music from 1996 as RW/FF takes you aboard a musical TARDIS on a journey through musical history. If you weren't around or were too young to remember the mid 90s,it's a lesson of enlightenment. If you (like me) were lucky enough to experience it all first time around, then these posts make a fine nostalgic blast from the blast.
Despite being the first album since the departure of guitarist Bernard Butler, his replacement Richard Oakes immediately proved himself to be a great addition to the group, and 'Coming Up' was the album that introduced Suede to a worldwide audience, in places such as Europe, Canada and Asia. The album went to number 1 in the UK charts, and sold over a million copies. It also spawned FIVE Top 10 hit singles, including the glorious rush of 'Lazy', which reached number 9 when it was released as a single the following year.
A special 20th anniversary deluxe edition of 'Coming Up' is available now.
