Chris Difford : 'Up The Junction'
An evening that's sure to be Cool For Cats!'
He never thought it would happen...
Chris Difford brings his ‘Up the Junction’ tour to the St Austell Arts Centre, providing a string of songs and stories from his incredible life on and off the road, with his band Squeeze.
Chris is a rare breed. As a member of one of London’s best-loved bands, the Squeeze co-founder has with his collaborator, Glenn Tilbrook, very much “The Odd Couple”!
Together they have made a lasting contribution to popular music with hits such as ‘Cool For Cats’, ‘Up The Junction’, ‘Labelled With Love’, ‘Hourglass’ and ‘Tempted’.
Despite the fact that Chris has helped provide the soundtrack to so many fans’ lives since his first release in 1977, the passion for innovation and love of playing still drives him to carry on writing & performing, rather than sit back and admire his handiwork.
Over the course of a 13 album (40 year!) career with Squeeze, it was clear from the very beginning that Chris Difford has few peers when it comes to smart, pithy lyricism. His street-savvy, witty & wise words and music has drawn plaudits from fans on both sides of the Atlantic, with his influence and style still strong today today.
Lily Allen and Mark Ronson, Kasabian, Razorlight and The Feeling have all recognised the debt they owe to Squeeze’s music and to Difford’s way with words, while journalists were moved by his winning combination with Glenn Tilbrook to dub the pair ‘The New Lennon and McCartney’.
Chris first learned to stand on his own when he wrote the lyrics for the fictional band Strange Fruit in the 1998 British comedy film ‘Still Crazy’, for which he won his first Ivor Novello award. Since then he has written and contributed lyrics for the likes of Elton John, Wet Wet Wet, Jools Holland, Paul Carrack, Lisa Stansfield and Bryan Ferry.
Don't miss your chance to spend an evening in the company of the Grammy nominated, double Ivor Novello award winner and one of the finest singer songwriters of our generation.
Take him – he's yours!
(Well, for one night only!)
