NEW ALBUM! Glen Tilbrook and the Fluffers

Not really fluff at all.

It’s been almost five years since the release of Glen Tilbrook released Transatlantic Ping Pong, which is about four more years than I like to wait for Tilbrook to drop an album. His new effort with The Fluffers is good but not great…but the parts I like are getting better with repeated listens.

Read my review of Pandemonium Ensues in BLURT Magazine.

Thought I'd squeeze this in as well...

Of course, any conversation about Glen Tilbrook pings back to Squeeze, and while I can’t say that his solo releases knock me silly the way that Argybargy or East Side Story did, he remains a strong writer and his voice is in pristine form. If you ever get the chance to see him live, do! He’s possibly even more entertaining as a solo act than with a band. Brilliant guitar player – watching him in a small club was a revelation – and funny as hell. And if you haven’t been lucky enough to see him, I highly recommend picking up One For The Road, a documentary about Glen criss-crossing the country on tour.
