'Love And Poison' promises to tell all - and there's lots to tell...

‘SUEDE: LOVE AND POISON’ – the first official biography of the band – is to be released on November 3.

The book, written by long-time band associate David Barnett, promises to reveal the real stories behind singer Brett Anderson’s battle with drugs, his relationship with [a][/a]’s Justine Frischmann and the subsequent feud with Blur after she started stepping out with Damon Albarn.

Also covered will be Bernard Butler’s departure from the group and the recruitment of 17 year-old schoolboy Richard Oakes, as well as keyboard player Neil Codling’s struggle with illness.

Compiled from hours of interviews with the band members and also featuring Frischmann, Mike Joyce and ‘The Office”s Ricky Gervais, the book will also contain previously unpublished photographs.
