Chris Difford’s lyrics and Glenn Tilbrook’s music have prevailed through turbulent times over the past four decades, from the ever-changing musical landscape to their own internal reshuffles and an acrimonious break-up. ‘The At Odds Couple’ will see Glenn and Chris reflecting on their careers, as part of Squeeze and as solo artists, sharing not only the music but also giving an insight in to what makes the two of them tick as a partnership.
“There is lots of history and myth to our relationship. There have been times when we’ve not gotten on and not communicated with each other but we are now at a place where we have a lot of respect for each other”, explains Chris. “No relationship is plain sailing, whether it be personal or work, but over the years we’ve come to understand our differences and similarities and learnt to co-exist alongside each other.”
“The last few years have been really interesting. We’ve talked more than ever and reflected on our relationship and it’s brought us to this point”, added Glenn.
In addition to performing a selection of hits, including ‘Up The Junction’ and ‘Cool For Cats’, Chris and Glenn will be dusting down some previously unrecorded songs that were written together back in the band’s infancy that were never recorded, “there are a few corkers in there”, as well as playing tracks from their solo careers. The duo’s also been working on new Squeeze material – set for release in 2015 - which will no doubt creep into the set list.
