Live album and a different DVD

The Herald: Pulling the plug
Squeezed in

The ambitious trajectory of Glasgow's Luna Records, founded by Beanscene cafe magnate Gordon Richardson, continues apace. The label's experienced A&R guru Ronnie Gurr has signed up former Squeeze wordsmith Chris Difford and a live album, cheekily entitled South East Side Story to echo the band's best album, featuring many of their hits and recorded in the band's old Deptford stamping ground, is upcoming. Cannily, the release date will coincide with Universal's re-release of the Squeeze back-catalogue. There will be a DVD, too, featuring testimonials from a host of Difford admirers.
