loveinthe90s:

And now … well, Suede’s new album, due in October, may prove as wonderful as reports suggest, but sadly, it looks unlikely there’s going to be a band around to take advantage of it. Blur are probably sick of talking about Suede by now, but what do they think of the Brett/Bernard split?

“We don’t mind talking about it at all at the moment,” grins Damon. “It’s quite an amusing subject.”

Did the split come as a surprise?

“I knew a long time ago,” he says flatly.

And is it the end of Suede?

“It should be the end. They should split up now. Time to do something else, I think. Bernard wrote all the songs, so … I wish them all the best, all the luck in the world, but they really didn’t have to suffer. I’d have understood if they really had the pressure on them, but they didn’t. They didn’t seem to demonstrate a lot of staying power. I feel sorry that Bernard feels so messed up inside that he’s done that. He had a good opening in life. You have to be very disturbed or something to want to throw it away so soon.”
