For me, the thought that A New Morning is the last Suede album... It's a poor record that I regret releasing, I regret the response to it and it was very instrumental in the fact we split up. We had run out of ideas. We should have just gone away and done things like solo records to get stuff out of systems. We didn't, we just ploughed on with it and it was kind of a mistake. It had some great moments on it, but as a document it wasn't strong enough. I'd love there to be a new record that plays on Suede's strengths.

U2 have unfortunately released several poor records. Bono always said once they released one poor record, that was it, they were done.

To add, Brett Anderson does have the "excuse", for want of a better word, of becoming addicted to hard drugs during the last years of Suede (before they reformed in 2011). U2 don't have that excuse!

Yeah and Mick Jagger said he wouldn't be singing Satisfaction when he's 35.

i thought he said "two crap albums" or something like that

they've certainly had two crap albums, with occasional redeeming bits

still

Bono lies and Bambi shits in the woods

and i don't mean, there's a girl i know at the Rainbow Lounge named Bambi, except she's really a dude but her stage name is Bambi

anyways she doesn't lie, she tells it like it is, the cold hard truth

most people can't handle it, and me i just count the money stuffed in my underpants

I haven't even gotten around to them.

Suede's first three albums were top notch, and the B-Side Collection "Sci-Fi Lullabies" was a magnificent piece of work.

I can't comment on that but if you ask me Sci-Fi Lullabies, a B-Side collection of their 1990s work, is better than most bands best albums.

Inside her is the suburbs
In the sodium lights and the streets
In the parked cars and the pretty parks
And in every lonely disease

In the new loves under covers
In the cold touch of the right
In the dead flowers and the silent hours
In the nightclubs and the fights

Cold cold as the night
High as the trees
Slow as you like
Oh you know she's
She's cold as the night
High as the trees
Slow as you like
Sadie

Inside her is the suburbs
In the old front room in the rain
In all the bad days and the music that plays
In the bored kids and their games

In the new loves under covers
And all the young mums and their worlds
Who are left at home when all the kids have grown
Watching the pretty young girls

Cold cold as the night
High as the trees
Slow as you like
Oh you know she's
She's cold as the night
High as the trees
Slow as you like
Sadie

Cold cold as the night
High as the trees
Slow as you like
Oh you know she's
She's cold as the night
High as the trees
Slow as you like

Oh and I've got to take it
And I've got to fake it
And I've got to steal it
And I've got to feel it
And I've got to choose her
And I've got to use her
And I've got to be
Sadie
