Thursday 12th January 1995
The SFX Centre

Suede at the SFX on their "Dog Man Star" tour. This was my first time to see Suede, attending the gig on the advice of Dr. J. I would come to love this album later, but at the time it was unfamiliar territory.

Suede were great. They were touring with their then-new guitarist Richard Oakes, who the girls in the crowd had already taken a shine to. Brett did all his 1995 Suede behaviour: microphone swinging, hair shaking, etc. I managed to get another set-list and didn't miss another Suede show in Ireland from that point on. Needless to say I bought all their records too.
