Squeezing It Out

On Friday, September 19 we took a trip to New York's famous Radio City Music Hall to see Squeeze. This was a little off the beaten path for me, musically. Although I have my "guilty pleasure" pop that I secretly enjoy (hey, I did get to see Colin Hay play several "Men at Work" songs with Ringo Starr earlier this summer!), I was really only familiar with the ubiquitous "Tempted".

My main surprise was that these guys can not only play, but really got into some totally deep fried southern chickin' pickin' telecaster, with a British bent of course. Having listened to the studio work - which, frankly, bores me - I can't figure out why people with this much musical talent would go out of their way to hide it when recording! They really stepped it up Nashville style with songs like "Annie Get Your Gun".

Check it out:

And, please, whatever you do ... don't mention "Black Coffee in Bed" T-Shirts!
