Every so often something out of the ordinary will happen in the world of music, like Elvis on the Ed Sullivan Show, or the Pistols on Bill Grundy. 

 

Back in 93, Suede had just released the eponymously titled 'Suede',  and were booked to play at the 93 Brit Awards... in front of an audience consisting almost entirely of middle aged record company execs, businessmen, corporate investors, and their middle aged wives. They liked music by guys in sensible sweaters, like Val Doonican, and Des O'Connor... shit you can whistle along to.  The organisers had no idea who the fuck Suede even were... they only invited the group because The Brits had been accused of not giving new groups any exposure.  So, almost at random, they settled on Suede. 

 

Suede came out to polite applause, Brett Anderson in a mostly open, transparent blouse, and played to a silent, unresponsive audience. There was zero feedback for the band to feed on, but Brett Anderson strutted like an androgynous whore trying to drum up business on a wet holiday weekend, smacking his arse and baring his rock hard nipples. This lasts for three glorious minutes of legend-making music, before Anderson smashes the mic to the stage and flounces off triumphant, as the majority of the audience look around at one another confused and frightened, unsure as to what they'd just witnessed. 

 

Fucking genius is what they'd witnessed.

There was something behind that performance like Suede were asked not to play the drowners [because it referenced homosexuality] or something so that's why they delivered this type of aggressive rendition - you'll also notice that Bernard Butler had down tuned his guitar to make the sound rougher as well.

For awkward Brit Award moments to the same sensible jumper wearers check the year previous when KLF did their hit single with Grindcore legends Extreme Noise Terror.
Quite the show opener.

Can't be assed attaching a clip....feel free to do so.

Sepultura on 'the Word' - was genuinely excited as fuck about it at the time; wasnt much of an outlet for thrash metal on mainstream tv. Looking back, keeping the fans locked up in a cage for the duration, and chucking raw meat in to them was maybe a touch on the primitive side - but was what you had to endure at the time I guess haha

The world outside Scotland makes me love the scottish game more and more. Good solid 10's of thousands transfer fees; no frills - good honest solid realism, with a squeeze of hate and a smidge of daring to dream.

 

The Dons are a joy to support.

John Lennon being shot was a great moment given he'd turned into some mental "save the world" campaigner with his mad wife.

 

Good riddance.

Suede were absolutely fucking outstanding, by a country mile my favourite band of the 90s. Saw them live a bunch of times and was never disappointed.

And I would ‘turn’ for Brett. Just the once, mind.

A bit dated like, but a stellar live performance from the Dutch band Focus on an NBC show hosted by, what looks like a young Oprah in 1973. Bit of a hoot like with the singer, organist, flautist and yodeller of a front man playing it up for all he was worth. Most played record on the Moorings jukebox easily for that year.

At The Drive In on Letterman was something special man..  All hair, noise, gyrating and grooving, the singer boy glides and slips about the stage like an eel, you can hardly keep up with him.. Just sensational...

The Word was something else like. As you say that performance from L7 was mental ha ha

Could you imagine Channel 4 trying to get away with the show now :o

The Sensational Alex Harvey Band live in 1974 giving Framed some laldy. Watch out for the Jamie Carragher moment early on in the video. Blues perfection.

Never really listened to Suede in the 90's, but I did like the singles when I heard them. Was only last year I decided to get one of the CD box sets and glad I did. I'd probably say the debut and Coming Up are my favorites, hard to pick one. Got the last two albums and they are excellent too, Night Thoughts is up there with the early stuff imo.

 

@Old manny Alex Harvey is criminally underrated too, a great Scottish artist and the Sensational Alex Harvey Band looked like one of the best live back in the day
