So Young: Suede 1991-1993 is a deluxe document of the formative years of fastest debut album-selling, Mercury Music Prize-winning rock band Suede, now entering their fourth decade of a hugely important and influential career.
This book is packed with unseen photos, gig flyers, early posters and diary entries from the archives of Simon Gilbert, beginning with the drummer making his way to the capital in the early 90s, hellbent on joining a band and forging a career in music.
Taking the reader through the sensuous sights and sounds of the thriving London scene of the time, So Young 1991-1993 is a rip-roaring journal of a vital musical era; a must-read time capsule for those who weren't there and a potent reminder for those lucky enough to have experienced the chaos first-hand.
Respected radio DJ and journalist Stuart Maconie contributes the foreword to So Young: Suede 1991 – 1993. As a champion of Suede from their very early days, no one is better placed to open the story.
