Suede frontman Brett Anderson has retired his trademark butt-slapping stage act - because it feels like "self-parody" after almost 20 years.
The cult British band shot to fame in the early 1990s and split in 2003 before reforming last year (10) for a series of concerts.
They are currently undertaking a three-night residency in London to play their classic early albums in full - but singer Anderson has vowed not to pull his camp butt-whipping moves during the nostalgic shows.
He tells NME.com, "You can't be too historical and you got to have a bit of disrespect. You can't have self-parody and slapping your a**e."
