Suede perform at Abbey Road Studios

Suede lead singer Brett Anderson wanted to "rewrite history" with the reformed band's new album, he revealed as they played at Abbey Road Studios for the first time.

He said he thought their last album before splitting up was "c**p" and that he was much happier with Bloodsports.

An invited audience of 70 people crowded into Studio Three of the legendary London venue to hear them perform tracks from the top 10 album Bloodsports. Part of the acoustic session, which also featured 90s hits Trash and So Young, was broadcast live on Absolute Radio.

Brett told the audience the intimate gig was "fun" - but admitted in an interview with DJ Geoff Lloyd beforehand that as a Londoner he found the Abbey Road crossing outside, immortalised in The Beatles album of the same name, "annoying".

He said: "I've lived in London a million years. I've walked over that zebra crossing almost every day to do the school run. It gets clogged up because there are always Japanese tourists standing there - it can be annoying. I'm not going to add to that."

He said he was "not into rock heritage tourism" before adding: "I hate it". Asked if he would like it bulldozed, he laughed: "Yeah I would actually. "

Speaking about Bloodsports, he said: "I think a lot of the motivation for making the album was the fact that the last Suede album before we split up was a bit c**p and it was almost like trying to rewrite history a little bit.

"To help us say, 'Look, we took a wrong turn at one point, what if we hadn't taken that turn?'. Almost like a 'Sliding Doors' thing - and that was one of our big motivations for making the record."

The singer added that many songs had been rejected by the band for not having the authentic Suede sound.

Highlights of the interview and the acoustic session will be broadcast on Absolute Radio at 10pm on Sunday April 28.
