Glenn Tilbrook • Exeter Phoenix, 27 February | Event in Exeter | Glenn Tilbrook • Exeter Phoenix
Glenn Tilbrook has more than earned his place at pop’s top table as
one of our most cherished singers, guitarists and songwriters,
not to mention an in-demand and endlessly endearing live
performer. But more than 40 years after he first answered an
ad placed by Chris Difford looking for like-minded sorts to
form the band that became the much-loved evergreen Squeeze, an
ending is nowhere in sight.

Such is the continuing work ethic of a fellow who’s never been far from
the action since Squeeze made their recording bow with the
Packet Of Three EP in 1977. Those humble three tracks led to
such enduring pop classics as Take Me I’m Yours, Cool For
Cats, Up The Junction, Another Nail In My Heart, Tempted,
Labelled With Love, Black Coffee In Bed, Hourglass (this could
go on for a while...), not to mention landmark albums like
Argybargy, East Side Story and Some Fantastic Place.

Squeeze’s demise in 1998 (though not permanent) saw Glenn embark on a
solo career that spawned the albums The Incomplete Glenn
Tilbrook (2001) and Transatlantic Ping-Pong (2004), showcasing
an ever-maturing songwriting talent. In 2009 came the
fantastic energy of Pandemonium Ensues, an album made with his
solo touring band The Fluffers. Arguably, though, Happy Ending is Glenn’s most
personal work to date, a series of evocative portraits of
time, people and places, that included writing and vocal
contributions by his own children Leon and Wesley, in addition
to old friends Simon Hanson (Fluffers/reunited Squeeze
drummer) and Dennis Greaves (Nine Below Zero, also Glenn’s
compatriot in the side project band The Co-operative).

Anyone who has witnessed Glenn on the live stage can attest to the
properness of his doings, as it were. Armed with ready wit,
raucous vibes and a shed load of grin-inducing great songs,
there are few musicians able to connect with their audience on
such an immediate and warm level. The ever burgeoning festival
circuit is frequently enriched by Tilbrook the troubadour,
whether he be leafing through the plentiful back catalogue of
Squeeze or dashing off impromptu audience requests ranging
from Jimi Hendrix to Tony Orlando & Dawn, and all points in-between.
