teenage kicks (ha-ha)

“Like a lot of people I thought that the music business was this incredibly money-grabbing, soulless kind of place and it took ten years working at other kinds of things to realise that all industries are like that. That’s just the world of work.”

Interview with Mat Osman, bassist of my darling Suede

Fact is, the first time I listened to Bloodsports I was not immediately impressed. I guess I was afraid of the sentimental high-school reunion style nostalgia, of course it’s great because it’s Suede, therefore I was perhaps listening to it with guarded ears. Then I listened to the thing a second time, then a third, then again, and again, weeks in between, and then a year later it has become so good!!!

Or it’s just the teenager kicking in!
