THE BUTLER DID IT (NEARLY)
Bernard Butler has almost finished work on his second album and will release it through Creation Records at the end of the summer, narrowly avoiding a head-to-head with Suede whose album 'Head Music' is released in May.

The follow-up to his 1998 debut album 'People Move On' will be preceded by a single - possibly called 'Souvenir' - to be released late spring.

Butler has described the new record as: "More direct, more concise, no strings."

He has been recording the as-yet untitled album at legendary producer Mickie Most's Rak Studios. He has also recorded a number of tracks at Edwyn Collins' studio as well as The Kinks' Konk Studio.

Songs slated for the LP are 'Souvenir', 'You Must Go On', '70 Miles' and 'Friends And Lovers'.

Does Bernard piss all over Suede or visa versa? Are they better off without each other? Who is coping best with the aftermath of the divorce? Tell us what you think. Post a message on Angst
