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.
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.
Much more information is available at Glen’s official website.
