‘This was Squeeze at their most British — a story song straight out of Sillitoe…’

Rick McGinnis:

You can see that Difford and Tillbrook are bewildered at how the band’s later incarnations, with eight albums between 1985 and 2010, never really made the same impression as their first four, recorded in as many years. Their friends and fans wonder why later records like Some Fantastic Place were completely ignored, but as you hear snatches of songs and watch clips from videos, the answer seems obvious…

Alas, as happens to all Englishmen, their “Limey bomb” went off at middle age. (See: Hemmings, David...)
