WaPo: CHRIS DIFFORD "South East Side Story" Luna Records
SQUEEZE SONGWRITING collaborators Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford have each pursued a solo career after the longtime new-wave group's final breakup in the late 1990s. While Tilbrook has released several solo albums of new songs, Difford has taken a different tack, following up his 2003 debut with "South East Side Story," a collection of covers . . . of Squeeze material.

You, yes YOU, can jam with Paul Carrack

tilbrook hits australia
It's not on Glenn's official Web site but an Australian publicist has announced on her blog what appears to be an extended visit to Australia (at least three weeks, it seems) during April. She says there are Glenn dates in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria (with the RocKwiz band) and Brunswick, wherever Brunswick is. The venues she's mentioned also lists these dates. Amy Pickard's documentary also gets a screening at one of these shows. I suppose the responsible thing to do is to wait until Tilbrook updates his site. But what's a blog for if not jumping the gun?

English people, help!
Daily Mail - Ashes blog
They say you should never meet your heroes through fear of being disappointed by them but one of the biggest heroes I've ever had was there leading the England team and I was grateful to have another chance to talk to him. Graham Gooch is right up there for me along with Glenn Hoddle and Chris Difford as the three most influential hero-figures I have had.I have no idea what that means.
