The Tears

I was a big fan of early Suede, so I was quite intrigued by the news that Brett Anderson and Bernard Butler have got back together again. I always thought that Butler was the best guitarist of his generation. Through a combination of fallings out and bad luck (Creation went tits up just when his second album was released on the label) he never really became the kind of guitar legend he could have been. Then again, now I think about it, neither Johnny Marr nor John Squire really had the success their talents indicated since they left The Smiths and The Roses respectively.

Anyway The Tears have started touring and there should be an album in March of this year. The official site isn't very good, so you're much better to look at one of the fan sites that have already sprung up.
