“I’m not reinventing the wheel / I just like the way it makes me feel”, says Glenn Tilbrook of his recent recordings. When the wheel in question is the perfect three-and-a-half minute pop song, Tilbrook is a certified patent holder and member of that elite group that includes such tunesmiths as Lennon & McCartney, Ray Davies and Elvis Costello. As one half of the song-writing ampersand behind the beloved band Squeeze and now a successful solo artist, Tilbrook has perfected a signature style marked by brilliant melodic invention, cheeky humor and slice-of-life pathos, all wrapped up with unshakable hooks and his golden boy tenor. From chestnuts like “Up the Junction” and “Pulling Mussels (From the Shell)” through stunning new tracks “Untouchable” and “Ray and Me”, he has amassed a veritable Sears Catalogue of memorable songs.
