WHERE TO FIND SUEDE IN PRINT

I realize that it is impossible to list every single magazine who has had an interview with Suede (there must be hundreds) but anyway, here's a brief list of magazines you might be interested in getting a hold of. To narrow it down a bit, I have chosen to only include English papers and magazines. Mail me info about missing magazines please.
