Squeeze frontman Glenn Tilbrook has a solo show at RecordBar tonight
In March, Squeeze frontman and guitarist Glenn Tilbrook released a solo album, Happy Ending, which I assumed was a euphemism. (C’mon, you did, too.) But Tilbrook isn’t that jaded, and his songs end up pretty fluffy without Squeeze partner Chris Difford to write lyrics for his melodies.
Not that Happy Ending is a waste of time. Far from it. It’s a friendly, charmingly folksy album with earthy themes. (Tilbrook has forsaken electric guitars for this release.) It’s the kind of album that you’d pop in on a road trip in a car packed with kids, teens and parents, and no one would find anything to complain about.
