The Wound-Up Ones: 20th anniversary release of Suede’s ‘Dog Man Star’ to include cassette edition


It’s been a great year for classic Britpop records turning the Big 2-0. So far we’ve raised a pint glass to the likes of Pulp’s His N Hers, Blur’s Parklife, and hell, Oasis’ (What’s The Story) Morning Glory hits the milestone tomorrow (stay tuned for our New Ordered on that after the holiday weekend).

But the 20th anniversary we’re really looking forward to comes October 10, when Suede’s legendary sophomore effort Dog Man Star joins the double-decade club. We’ll be hosting a Britpop Social Club at Abagail’s in Cambridge the night before, but to hold us over, details have emerged on a massive Dog Man Star 20th anniversary deluxe box set, which will drop this fall.

The release will compile an interview/live DVD, hardcover lyric book, sheet music, other stuff, and the album itself on multiple formats… including cassette. Just like how you bought that shit at Sam Goody back in ’94.


The whole thing looks pretty intense, and will set you back about $300. Here are the full details from a Suede mailer that went out this morning, with full album stream after the blockquote jump.

Suede will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their incredible second album ‘Dog Man Star’, with a special limited edition box set released on the 20th October 2014.
