Live: Joy Festival @ Groombridge Place

Joy Festival is held in the amazing grounds and woodlands of Groombridge Place which is set near the town of Royal Tunbridge Wells. If you are a parent you would probably know this location with its giant swings hanging from the trees hidden on the trails in the woods, the large pirate ship in the adventure playground, the enormous boardwalk, boat rides along the serene wooded river and picnics with the peacocks in the formal gardens.

Live: Squeeze @ O2 Indigo London.

Squeeze at O2 Indigo in London It’s hard to believe that the latest Squeeze album is the band’s first new work in 17 years. Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford – the songwriting powerhouse of Squeeze – have, of course, done their fair share of writing, recording and touring with other projects in the intervening time. However, I’ve caught them live a number of times in the last couple of decades and they’ve pulled off several wonderfully entertaining and varied shows.

Masters of the quintessential British pop song, their 40 year friendship and songwriting partnership may have featured rifts as well as riffs, but as they take to the road as a duo and prepare to write new material, they appear to have reached a stage of harmony and reflection. Tonight will be their second sold out show at Union Chapel in north London and Chris and Glenn have just finished their soundcheck. Sitting in the venue’s...

LIve: Difford & Tilbrook @ Union Chapel.

Two rock stars tumble out of bed, before finding themselves a cup of tea and gazing around at a packed room of spectators. Not something you often witness in a church and no ordinary start to a gig. Tonight, however, Union Chapel hosts a rare treat of Squeeze frontmen, Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook, staging an evening of songs and conversation entitled The At Odds Couple Tour. An elaborate stage set depicts a bedroom from the 1970s, strewn with guitars and mannequins and engulfed in highly patterned wall paper. The set references their emergence in that decade’s New Wave...
