I'm sorry, but I can't not be excited about this. As it stands, Suede have been more or less written out of the Britpop history (at least as far as Live Forever is the authorized version) and that's not right. Suede started Britpop. They were the ones who reinvigorated a music scene that had been about desperately dull dance-rock and charisma-challenged groups like The Wonder Stuff. They singlehandedly brought tunes, style and sex back into rock music, and those were exciting times for those of us who felt Nirvana were the only group worth a toss in the wholly dominant grunge scene (well, and the Whigs).

10 years older and the times have changed -- so Anderson & Butler can never mean what it once did. But hopefully they'll make it new.
