Glenn Tilbrook ★★

King Tuts, Glasgow

26/11/11

The lead singer of the band “Squeeze”, Glenn Tilbrook, is a musical genius.
The 2 hour gig consisted of mainly upbeat songs from both his solo albums “The Incomplete Glenn Tillbrook” and “Translantic Ping Pong.” The venue was perfect and by covering a few Squeeze songs such as  ”Up The Junction” , Tillbrook  ensured the gig was a total hit with the crowd.  Would have liked a few more Squeeze songs to have been played tho and a shorter break in the middle would have been preferred. However the encore was great, with the supporting act – Steve Poltz, joining Tilbrook on stage for a performance of the upbeat song “Tempted.”

Good wee gig overall

Kate Walsh ★★

Honestly, I had heard virtually nothing of this singer/songwriter from Essex, but after her recent gig in Glasgow, I am definitely a new fan.

With a 75 minute set including her most famous songs “Your Song” and “Don’t break my heart”, Kate successfully captured the audience with her raw acoustic talent. “Le Jardinier” was also a huge hit, after Kate explained she wrote the song, in french ,about the boy she liked, “so no one could understand it.”

Such a great voice.

And the venue was amazing.

A performance of songs from his most recent EP ” The Law of Attraction” provided the crowd with an insight into the amazing talent that this singer/songwriter from Paisley has.

Having last seen him supporting passenger in October, It was clear to see that his talent simply continues to thrive with every performance. Original songs such as “Stornoway” and “Addicted to Poision” created a very intense and unique atmosphere within the room.

With new music videos promised to be filmed within the new year, we can’t expect nothing less than amazing from him.

Really great gig.
