Things may have seemed quite quiet in the Squeeze camp recently but it’s the calm before the storm. There’s so much happening it’s hard to fit it all in one post, but I’ll have a go.
Firstly this week there’s the Greenwich Summer Sessions with the following:
Glenn Tilbrook is playing with Nine Below Zero in their support spot to Status Quo in Greenwich on Thursday 28th July 2011.
Squeeze are playing on Friday 29th July 2011 supported by Turin Breaks
Glenn Tilbrook will be DJing on the Vintage Love Boat, part of Wayne Hemingway’s Vintage Festival 2011: The Royalty Afternoon Teaser (2.45-4.45pm) Saturday 30th July 2011
Chris Difford is curating Songs in the Key of London on Sunday 31st July with a guest appearance from…. yes, you guessed, Glenn Tilbrook.
Glenn Tilbrook and Nine Below Zero will be releasing a new album shortly (artwork available soon). It’s an 11 track album featuring the band and Glenn with three classic cover versions, three instrumentals and five original compositions by the boys. They’re all really excited about the project. Anything they do in the future will be under the name ‘The Cooperative’.
Expect to see the next of Glenn’s demo CDs later in the year. It’s going to be a good one.
Also coming soon is the release date of If I, If I, If I… The Songs of Squeeze Revisited.
50-track, 4-CD album covering the first four Squeeze records – “Squeeze,” “Cool For Cats,” “Argybargy,” and “East Side Story” – in their entirety and in their original track sequence. Features many of your favorite artists from previous Burning Sky Records releases, as well as some great new discoveries. To be released July 26, 2011, this will be Burning Sky Record’s most ambitious album yet!

Glenn will be continuing to DJ and play at The Pelton Arms in Greenwich on Thursday nights in the future. Nights he will not be there he will be replaced by ‘2bit’ Squeeze producer Andrew J Jones. A fantastic night whichever DJ turns up!
There are some Thursday nights at the Pelton that Glenn won’t be able to do. In his place will be 2bit, he is Glenn’s friend and collaborator in production for The Fluffers and also Squeeze, Andrew J Jones. Andy guest DJ’d with Glenn a couple of weeks ago.
The dates that 2bit will be in place of Glenn are: 21st July, 28th July, 4th and 11th August.
