Hombre! High marks to you for this fine piece on a wonderful and sadly over-looked artist. Tilbrook is up there in my top 5, both as a singer (a juvenile McCartney, you could call him) and a guitarist. I've always been in awe of his solos. And, as you pretty well put it, "then there are the songs". You did a wonderful research in not limiting yourself to the most well-known ones. A couple that I would encourage readers to listen to for their solos are "It's so Dirty" (an early work) and of "Long Face". Now, if only someone from the drumming world could do equal justice to original member Gilson Lavis...

Damian,
Another great interview from you. I like Squeeze very much. I always thought Difford and Tilbrook were great together as song writing partners. Definitely a band that deserved wider commercial acclaim IMO. I was fortunate enough to be exposed to a lot of their stuff via WXRT in Chicago.

My favorite Squeeze guitar solo is "In Quintessence."

Are you seriously gonna go with that spelling of his name?
Burn?
Really?

Thanks for the catch, salmonline! Just a momentary lack of sanity ...
