Remastered on 180g Heavyweight Vinyl

Guided by the redoubtable songwriting team of Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook, enduring South London quintet Squeeze have created one of the most covetable – and quintessentially English – catalogs in pop. The budding teenage singer-songwriters founded the band in 1974, taking their name from The Velvet Underground's obscure final LP, recorded after the departure of mainstays Lou Reed and John Cale. The band's "classic" line-up, saw Difford and Tilbrook supplemented by powerhouse drummer Gilson Lavis, bassist Harri Kakoulli and prodigiously gifted pianist Jools Holland.

Squeeze really hit their stride on second album Cool For Cats (1979), wherein their natural, streetwise Cockney charm usurped the punky aggression of their debut. An eclectic treat, the LP includes everything from saucy 60s-style pop ("It's So Dirty") to the synth-swathed, Giorgio Moroder-esque "Slap And Tickle," while its two towering Top 10 hits, the cheeky, Ian Dury-ish "Cool For Cats" and "Up The Junction" – a superb and still-resonant portrait of a doomed relationship – showed that Difford was fast becoming an adept lyricist. Remastered on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl.
