Squeeze, Cradle to the Grave

Squeeze hadn’t recorded a new album of new material since 1998 when Glenn Tilbrook contacted Danny Baker about making a musical based on the latter’s autobiography.
The musical never materialised, but instead what we have is a Peter Kay-starring TV series with, cue trumpets, a brand new 12-track Squeeze record.
No-one has ever done slices of London life as well as Tilbrook and writing partner Chris Difford and, whether you’ve watched the TV show or not, Cradle to the Grave stands alone as a hugely enjoyable album worthy of the band’s early 1980s heyday. It’s great to have them back.
