If Glenn Tilbrook had never done another thing in his career outside of his work with Squeeze, his place in music history would be secure. For more than two decades, Tilbrook and songwriting partner Chris Difford charted a course that included angular Punk, jangly New Wave, blue-eyed Soul and sparkling Indie Pop, all of it defined by quirky arrangements, clever wordplay and a consistent foundation of engaging songcraft that was instantly identifiable as Squeeze. Even Difford and Tilbrook’s 1984 busman’s holiday as a duo bore the unmistakable mark of their long history together.

Tilbrook now is touring with his new band, the Fluffers, though his familiar Pop sensibilities remain intact.
