No Suede reunion

By | Published on Tuesday 17 February 2009

Good news for people who think reunions are rubbish (me, for example), former Suede guitarist Bernard Butler has said that he will never get the old band back together.

Speaking to the BBC after receiving his award for Best Producer at the Music Producers Guild Awards last Thursday, he said: “There’s an awful lot of Britpop reunions going on at the moment and I find it embarrassing personally. I think it’s got no relevance to what’s going on at the moment”.

“I’m obsessively opposed to nostalgia. I hate the idea of it. It doesn’t work. And it doesn’t interest with me at all. What’s important is not what I did last week, it’s what I’m going to do next week. I made great records – I love them. My kids play them now. But that’s for them and everyone else”.
