After Butler's acrimonious split from Suede, he teamed up with ex-Thieves singer McAlmont. They had a bonafide hit in their debut single Yes in 1995, a grandiose pop song. Following the release of the compilation The Sound of McAlmont & Butler, they split acriminously the following year in 1996.
Reconvening in 2001 to record a second album Bring It Back successfully fused Butler's magical guitar, McAlmont's soulful voice, with swooning and swelling Phil Spector girl-band style arrangements. The album disappointed commercially, and an almost-completed 3rd album is still without a label to release it. The song Speed, taken from those third album sessions, was released in 2006 as a download and a limited edition 7" single.
