Glenn discusses sushi and shambolicness with Japanese newspaper

Well, you can find out what his favored sushi is in the Daily Yomiuri. Of course, I would not spoil it for you, although I agree with him wholeheartedly.

And he made me go to the dictionary with this quote:

"The only thing that's consistent about my shows is that I don't work with a set list, the set sort of drifts around in a way. And I like doing that, it seems to work. There's a certain sort of shambolicness about my approach. It doesn't mean that I don't care about it, it just means that I like not knowing what I'm doing, 'cause it keeps me on my toes," he explained.

Oh, and Glenn is in Japan, by the way.

Glenn needs your help for his next video

On his Myspace blog, Glenn posts that you might be able to participate in the video for his next single :

To celebrate the launch of the website we are asking all of you if you would like the opportunity to be involved in the video for the new single 'Still'. If you are then please send to any photos you have of couples, holding hands, hugging or kissing. This does not have to be you and your partner, it can be with your child, your friend, your mum, anyone! We cannot guarantee that we will be able to use all of them but we will endeavour to use as many as possible.

Also, check out the new high tech look of his Web site. Very cool.

Lets not fight this Christmas

Chris has a new project and it's for a great cause.
I have, along with Kevin Malpass been working on a Christmas single in conjunction with the BBC’s One Show. Next week between 7 and 7.30 pm Monday to Friday you will see the story of our song. Please join us on our journey as we try to make this single a hit. It will be a download only track and the details of this will follow shortly. I always dreamt of being on Top Of the Pops at Christmas, I'm sure it wont happen, but we can have fun trying. And, make some money for Children in Need. Pass this on to as many people as you can so that when the download comes we can all suck it down from the internet and make this Christmas a bit of fun. If we do get on the tele around turkey time, you can all come round to my house for a mince pie!
There's also a facebook page for those of us who are young and hip and on facebook. (Or it least in denial about our age.)

Chris himself has a facebook page as well, by the way.

I'll be back with more details when they're available. (Or anyone can leave them in the comments.)

Squeeze at The Albany (May 4)

Yours truly has been sat in the corner of squeezereader towers sniffling and sneezing all week.


Frank, my faithful newshound has been bringing me cups of Lemsip and a fresh box of tissues on the hour.
The rain is beating down hard onto the windows and the world looks grey and uninviting until...


Frank's tail sticks up and he bounds across the room with the graceful poise of a bull in a china shop. Chairs and desks part company while pot plants crash down and with a big bump! all the Chocolate bars from the vending machine scatter across the floor.

With one big bound for a dog and one giant step for squeezefans everywhere, Frank lands on my lap and waves an email at me.

Wowzers! Squeeze are going to be making an appearance at Chris Difford's benefit concert!

Hugging Frank I take a swig of my Lemsip and smile. Those grey rain-filled clouds don't look so bad after all!

Chris Difford's Benefit Concert takes place at The Albany Arts Venue, Deptford on Sunday May 4. Doors open 7:30pm and the show starts at 8pm.

Tickets cost £12:50 and are available from the Albany Box Office on 020-8692-4466, or check out their website at:

Many thanks to Sandra (from The Albany) for the email :0)

She also tickles our aural tastebuds with this little teaser...

"... there’s a rumour that one of the special guests will be a certain dark haired pianist from the old days…"

I wonder who that could be? Will he be there from the start, or will he arrive later...?

Chris' new look website!

Whilst taking Frank, my faithful newshound, out for a walk around squeezereader towers, something extraordinary happened.

There we were strolling around the opulent surroundings of our orchard when Frank's nose started twitching.
"Hmmm", I thought, "Frank can smell something Squeezy in the air"

We carried on walking, when suddenly Frank jumped up and caught an object in his mouth.
On further inspection I was delighted to see that he had indeed caught something interesting.

On unfurling the exciting find, I was delighted to see the brand spanking new design of Chris Difford's website- very nice :0)

Go there now!
