Providing the missing link between classic British pop and post-punk, Squeeze are one of the most popular and iconic bands of the new wave period.
Once hailed as "the heirs to Lennon and McCartney’s throne," Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook became the voices of working-class England during their pomp in the 70s. Cool For Cats and Up the Junction remain absolute solid gold bangers while their back catalogue is littered with gems that combine social observation with earworm-level melodies.
Joining Squeeze will be punk poet extraordinaire Dr John Cooper Clarke. Expect to hear pieces from his new book, poems (old and new) as well as the usual musings and jokes on life and beyond.
Squeeze are also asking attendees to bring along food donations to the show to support The Trussell Trust, an organisation who provide emergency food and support to people in poverty. There will be collection points across the venue on the night.
