Here They Come With Their Make-Up On


“There were only a handful of people in the world who still really believed in Suede at the time, and five of them were in the band.” – Brett Anderson, Suede

Here They Come with Their Make-Up On examines in exquisite detail how Suede emerged from the chaotic, ruined remnants of their career and somehow managed to conjure up their most joyously evocative and celebrated album to date. Coming Up—the extraordinary record in question—stumped the band’s most ardent critics and hit the jackpot, with sales that eclipsed those of their first two releases combined. As the band’s publicist throughout that period, Jane Savidge is uniquely placed to reveal exactly how they did it.

This book is also a personal journey into the heart of an album that Jane loves—if not unconditionally then as a piece of work that has ultimately survived the ravages of time—and the brutish, nasty, and not-so-short nature of the media scrutiny that had threatened to confine the band to the dustbin of history. In addition, it features yet more outlandish tales from Jane’s time with Suede and those around them back then, as well as new interviews with band members Brett Anderson, Richard Oakes, and Neil Codling, and Coming Up’s producer, Ed Buller.
