Summary

Chris brings his ‘Up the Junction’ tour to ERT. A stand-up and sit-down night of tales and songs from his past in Squeeze.

Chris Difford is a rare breed. As a member of one of London’s best-loved bands, the Squeeze co-founder has made a lasting contribution to music with hits such as ‘Cool For Cats’, ‘Up The Junction’, ‘Labelled With Love’, ‘Hourglass’ and ‘Tempted’. Despite the fact that Chris has helped soundtrack so many fans’ lives since his first release in 1977, the passion for innovation and love of playing still drives him to carry on writing rather than sit back and admire his handiwork. For over 40 years he has been writing with Glenn Tilbrook, very much the Odd Couple.

Chris first learned to stand on his own when he wrote the lyrics for the fictional band Strange Fruit in the 1998 British comedy film ‘Still Crazy’, for which he won his first Ivor Novello award. Since then he has written and contributed lyrics for the likes of Elton John, Wet Wet Wet, Jools Holland, Paul Carrack, Lisa Stansfield and Bryan Ferry.

Chris has curated ‘Songs In The Key Of London’ event at the Barbican, bringing together musicians old and new such as Glenn Tilbrook, Suggs, Jools Holland, Blaine Harrison (Mystery Jets) and James Hunter. A second event took place in Greenwich Park in 2011 with Gary Kemp, Chris Wood, UB40 and others and in 2014 in Regents Park with Gregory Porter, The Strypes, Guy Barker Ed Harcourt and Sophie Ellis Baxter.
