Glenn Tillbrook, best-known as the guitarist and vocalist of Squeeze, will be performing a solo set at this year’s Llangollen Fringe Festival on Thursday, July 24.
Now on his fifth studio-album, Tillbrook’s life outside Squeeze will continue with a stripped-down acoustic set at the Llangollen Fringe with songs from his new album Happy Ending.
Tillbrook said: “What I’ve tried to do is just strip my writing back to guitar or piano and start out from there. One of the next goals I have is to make a sparse record, because I’m very good at putting in detailed information. I just like doing it.”
“I’m really, really vibed up on what I’m doing now, to me, this record takes its place alongside [Tilbrook and The Fluffers’] Pandemonium Ensues and [Squeeze albums] East Side Story, Argybargy and Cool for Cats, which are my favourite records that I have made. So that’s five albums that I’ve thought, ‘Yes! I’ve actually done that properly now’…”
The performance forms part of Glenn Tillbrook’s Happy Ending tour which has been extended throughout the year.
He will be performing at Llangollen Town Hall on July 24. Tickets cost £15 and doors open at 7:30pm.
