Suede formed Here

Bernard Butler auditioned here for Suede in Brett's flat

Location: Highlever road, ladbroke grove, W10

Description: Brett Anderson and Justine Frischmann met in 1989 while studying at University College London and became a couple soon afterwards.

Together with Anderson's childhood friend Mat Osman, they decided they had a core of a band but decided that neither Anderson nor Frischmann had the skill to be a lead guitarist, the group placed an advert in NME seeking to fill the position.

The advert ran in the magazine's 28 October 1989 issue: 'Young guitar player needed by London based band. Smiths, Commotions, Bowie, PSB's. No Musos. Some things are more important than ability. Call Brett.'

The advert ensued interest from nineteen-year-old Bernard Butler, who soon auditioned to join the group, in fact it took place in Highlever Road at Brett's flat.

The group settled on the name Suede and the rest they say is history...

Suede continue to rock and their importance in British pop history is undiminished.

But can you tell us what number Brett Anderson's flat was at?
