Rock’n’roll thrills are fairly thin on the ground in Charlton, so it was pretty exciting to see Squeeze’s Glenn Tilbrook playing a set at Cattleya’s on Charlton Church Lane on Sunday evening. Playing with a version of The Los Dawsons with the addition of Dennis ‘Nine Below Zero’ Greaves on guitar, and occasional Ripchord Gus Glen on bass, Glenn rattled through an hour or so of covers, joined for a couple of songs by Dave Suich of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain on vocals and harmonica.

Here’s a snippet of Gus singing Buddy Holly’s Rave On.
