Fast forward twenty years or so and I decided to try again.
Much better. So much so I think I should dig into the back catalog.
Galliano - The Plot Thickens. Used.

Dead Wolf Club is very good. Highly recommended. They have this very familiar feel - even if I can't say they sound exactly like "this band" or "that band." It works.
Dead Wolf Club - Healer. iTunes.

Bloodsports doesn't come close to the quality of the debut, Dog Man Star or the Stay Together EP. But holy shit, it's Suede, so it's still better than most releases.
I actually think it's better than A New Morning, which was good, but a bit underwhelming. I think Bloodsports is as good as the often underrated Coming Up.
I first heard Suede on a family trip to England in 1993. I picked up the debut immediately. Yet in twenty years I still haven't managed to see them. One of my life's great musical regrets.
Their return gives me hope. But it hasn't happened yet.
Suede - Bloodsports. amazon.com. New.
