Released in March 1993, "Suede" was the fastest-selling debut album ever in the UK.
Available on vinyl for the first time in the US, the album contains what Rolling Stone called "its triptych of
instantly classic singles" - "The Drowners", "Metal Mickey" and "Animal Nitrate".
At the time, the albums release in the US was hampered by an injunction from an existing US act called
Suede. As a result, the bands subsequent album releases in the US were branded as being by "The London
Suede", but the first album was never re-branded.
