|Oh What a Night!
You want a 'Saturday Night' out, give Suede a call. After all it is the title of their latest single so they must know what they`re talking about. Young Neil kindly voluteered to show our Ben Knowles how to take on the town. "Bring plenty of dosh," he said.This is why...
"The story behind the song is the simplest thing, no hidden meaning. It's exactly what it sounds like, it`s about two people on a Saturday Night and it`s all about going out. It`s a love song, it's a shrug of the shoulders, you can do what you want."
Neil Codling, twenty-three-year-old Suede keyboardist is preparing to guide us through an ideal Saturday Night. Trouble is,he hasn't had
|many ideal Saturday nights
"I haven't had a Saturday night off since June. I used to go out with my friends. Being in a band you lose the importance of Saturdays, whatever day you have off is the big one. At school it was fantastic when your birthday fell on a Saturday, you never lose that attitude towards the weekend."
So Neil, what are our options for this evening?
Neil `s Guide To what to do on a Saturday night
|since I was 17. I go through
phases. When you're in Europe for two months it's bad, in Russia your non-meat choice is
potatoes or lard, you'd end up weighting about three stone. I love Italian food, the
simplest stuff pomodore sauce, bread and olive oil, tomato and mozzarella salad.You can`t
beat it, it`s the most underrated food."
|sharp, shocks. Getting
"value for money" at a gig is terrible. I`ve enjoyed Orlando and Jack gigs
|central heating is one of
the worst inventions, it makes you so drowsy."
Late Night Shopping--
"That's definitely on the agenda at the moment. I need to buy some clothes. It's so hard to shop in foreign countries, you ask for help from people to buy a nice leather jacket or something, you get taken twelve miles to some small shop that sells crap jogging tops."
"I try to get out to the cinema as often as I can. It's good to see a range, to see the trashy things down the Multiplex, and to go down to you local small place to see something arty. I've got a six months backlog of things to watch. I haven't seen Mike Leigh's Secert And Lies yet. I wasn't a big fan of Trainspotting."
"I used to lice in Crouch End. There was a pub that had up and coming comedians, that was great. Seeing people who may be huge is fantastic."
"I find other people in bands quite boring too, talking about studios and the preforming rights societies...I'd rather go out with friends."
