At their best, Squeeze provided quirky suburban narratives for the disillusioned. Much of their output crept under the mainstream radar, issued on wacky coloured 7 inch vinyls - ideal for the record collector on a budget. If not for this alone, Chris and Glenn - we salute you.
Saw Difford and Tilbrook on their "At Odds Couple" tour last night in Newcastle. Excellent stuff and great to hear their voices together again. They were taking questions from the audience and someone asked Glenn: "about Goodbye Girl and the Muppet Show, did you not realise when you were writing it?". I'd no idea what he was on about until they played it, and yes, it is the Muppet theme.
Anyway - a few dates left: http://www.packetofthree.com/2014/04/07/difford-and-tilbrook-at-odds-couple-tour-in-november/ 2
