As one half of the songwriting team in Suede — greatest British band since the Beatles — Bernard Butler created the greatest rock album ever in Dog Man Star (both IMHO, of course).

All that, however, was in the past (depressingly far in the past if that record coincided with your own heyday). These days, Butler is a composer, producer, lecturer — and, as heard on The Ray D’Arcy Show (Radio 1, Mon-Fri, 3pm) — is keeping his hand in as a working musician.
