The unofficial Glenn Tilbrook web site is updated.
There's a link to a great interview from when Glenn was in Texas.
The unofficial Glenn Tilbrook web site is updated.
You heard New York Newsday: go see Glenn Tilbrook, "one of the best songwriters around," Friday at the Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett.
Do I dare? Yes, I dare! I dare! I just added a new test feature to the squeeze reader: e-mail subscription, courtesy of FeedBlitz. If this works, you really won't have a reason to skip your Squeeze Reader fix, and I hope this helps those of you who refuse to jump on the RSS/XML bandwagon. Now, I just need some brave volunteers to try it out and report back to me if it is something you would like me to continue here. Let me know in the comments section of this post if subscribing is a hassle, if the e-mails look funny, etc. Of course, I hope you all still keep coming here, because I am a stats ho'.
British celebrity must be a strange thing. Fred Lambton comes from a family with connections, doesn't he? He's got a grandfather who was a Tory MP, and I think he's the heir of something or other, but the British press insists on calling him Jools Holland's step-son. It seems that they're all jumping on the sign issue that recently landed Fred Lambton in hot water with the neighbors.
"That's just the start," [Lambton] tells me. "The majority of our politicians are uninspiring, boring and uncaring about the world we live in. I've started my website, ethicalnetwork.org, which is a brilliant way to reach out to the world's activists.(But we all know the Independent was so reliable with the news of Jools' wedding.)
"I'm planning all sorts of things and it's a great way to mobilise action. I also intend to go into politics in the next few years. There's a lot to be done."
A Paul Carrack gig in Ireland gets some digital ink and mentions Squeeze.
Quixotic Records' latest e-mail lists a Glenn show in Dundee, Scotland on Dec. 3, the same date that Jools & RBO and Difford are playing in Glasgow. Shall we give up hope of a reunion, or is this an announced date to throw us off the scent? Ah, well. Maybe at the very least, we can hope for a conciliatory nice dinner then?

Squeeze friend Aimee "Daphne" Mann gets interviewed about her new album and songwriting.
Pete from Squeezed sends along this e-mail:
It's this easy:
Fred Lambton, the son of Jools Hollands' wife, Christabel McEwen, has annoyed his neighbors by sticking a huge banner on his Chelsea home. The banner violates local planning codes and the town council is threatening legal action. The banner advertises Lambton's Web site, www.ethicalnetwork.org, which argues that supermarkets are detrimental to small farmers and independent businesses and encourages shoppers to support farmers markets and small grocers. Lambton, 20, says he didn't know if the banner was legal, but I say getting your fight with the neighbors in the papers (and the blogs) is one way to advertise your site!
Jessica Adams makes an obvious Squeeze reference in her novel "Cool for Cats", set in 1979, proving that you can make a chick lit book out of any topic (and it's a Brit chick lit book, to boot). The book is apparently about the relationships of a woman obsessed with pop music. Unfortunately, if it's set in '79, she misses some of Squeeze's best albums. On the other hand, the protagonist would have been able to catch our boys in local clubs. Among Ms. Adams' other titles: "Tom Dick and Debbie Harry," "I'm a Believer," and "Single White E-mail."
This young man reviews SFP.
I'm afraid I can't take credit for this one: Some sharp-eyed person on one of the e-mail lists noticed that Glenn and the Fluffers, Jools and R&BO with opening act Difford will all play in Glasgow on Friday Dec. 2, albeit in different venues. Jools, Chris and co, also are scheduled to play Saturday Dec. 3.

Guardian: The taste-makers
So you think you decide what goes into your music collection? Wrong. Alexis Petridis speaks to the people who control what you hear, like and buy
Later with Jools Holland's impact on sales is well-documented. KT Tunstall was, by her own admission, "playing to about six people a night", until she was booked at the last minute when rapper Nas pulled out. After performing Black Horse and the Cherry Tree, her debut album was re-issued with the track included and went platinum.
Just a few links I've found.
