Prestigious Award for Squeeze

From South London in 1974, through to the present day, Squeeze continues to thrill audiences with guitarists Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford leading the pack throughout the bands three-decade history. With hits such as Cool for Cats and Up the Junction it is no surprise, that many of today's young acts such as Mark Ronson, Razorlight and Kasabian have cited them as a major influence.

Their music has survived everything over the years, from the ever-changing musical landscape to their own internal reshuffles and acrimonious break ups - but Squeeze is here to stay. The band have recently been given a prestigious Heritage Award to recognise their work as one of the UK's legendary music acts.
