It was a rather special night on Friday 13th 2015 at London’s Roundhouse. . Brett Anderson made the impossible happen, performing to their own silent movie, “Night Thoughts” and performing behind a full size film screen as images were projected onto it. The film was written and directed by Roger Sargent and the Roundhouse performance was not only the Premier of the Film, but the first time the band had performed their new album in public to 1700 fans.

As the film played, backlights revealed front man Brett Anderson and behind the screen, the huge screen images dwarfing the band.  It was a surreal experience to watch as a music photographer, trying to focus on the band, but unable to hit the mark due to the screen in the foreground. Just as well that that there would be an interval and second set, where the band performed an energetic, theatrical journey back to there first Album and a chance for Brett Anderson to throw his microphone around as he jumped off of anything he could climb on.

Die hide Suede fans (myself included) could really not have asked for more. Well,maybe another hour on stage…
