Squeeze’s 45th Anniversary

Posted by on Sep 17, 2019

Just a heads up: There’s a BBC documentary in the works about Squeeze. Oh, the stories… And, as if that wasn’t enough for fans, founding members Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook are at work on another album.

Another album. Hell yes, another album. Bring it.

Dive into that prolific catalogue of theirs, from the beginning essentials like Cool For Cats or Argybargy, or even Difford and Tilbrook’s admittedly least favorite recording Domino, and you should get an idea why the band left such a tremendous mark upon music, even beyond New Wave. It’s a 45-year history with an incredible discography, and a longtime creative partnership that still stands out, decades later, as something quite original.

Tonight is a special night. Squeeze’s anniversary tour includes a performance at The Paramount Theatre, 713 Congress Ave. Joining them on the bill is very special guest band, X.
