The Tears

Many have wondered how two performers as volatile as Bernard Butler and Brett Anderson who had at one time nurtured such hatred for one another, were reunited after all this time. Anderson describes getting together with former bandmate Butler as such, "We went out for a drunken night. I'd called him and we went out for a curry and got drunk. Then the next day he came over with these tracks and that was that". Though Butler and Anderson had not spoken since the days of Suede, Anderson claimed getting back in gear with Butler was not difficult. The band decided on being named after a line from a Philip Larkin poem, "Femmes Damnées", which ends with the line: "The only sound heard is the sound of tears".

    And the morning comes with coffee we can share
    And the smell of cigarettes is in your hair
    There's a sound that shouts outside the hotel room
    And at night the bulbs of cameras flash at you
    And if we don't have a future
