Chris Difford : Some Fantastic Place
My Life In And Out Of Squeeze
Rock ‘N’ Roll Book Club At The Union
Get Tickets Here

Following a great run of Rock And Roll Book Club events at the uber iconic Dublin Castle Bugbear and Julie Hamill are very pleased to bring their literary and musical collaboration to The Union in Soho as part of The Union Sessions. What better environment for an urbane and erudite evening of author interaction, Q and A and book signing with some remarkable writers? Published author and expertly attuned interviewer Julie Hamill will be posing the questions, plus there will be select performances and mindfully fashioned DJ sets by Tony Gleed (Soho Radio, Boogaloo Radio). April’s Union engagement sees the arrival of Chris Difford and his remarkable memoir Some Fantastic Place- My Life In And Out Of Squeeze. Check out the rarely seen Squeeze Cool For Cats promo video, Alternate version, just there embedded behind the lovely Chris. Mr Difford is a rare breed. As a member of one of London’s best-loved bands, the Squeeze co-founder has made a lasting contribution to English music with hits such as Cool For Cats, Up The Junction, Labelled With Love, Hourglass and Tempted. Ivor Novello award winning songwriter Chris Difford has written and contributed lyrics for the likes of Elton John, Wet Wet Wet, Jools Holland, Paul Carrack, Lisa Stansfield and Bryan Ferry. Following the recent release of his fourth studio album, Chris got together with Orion Books, and this wonderful autobiography is the result. Chris Difford will be interviewed tonight by regular RocknRoll Book Club host Julie Hamill, with audience Q and A, book signings and a Difford related disco agogo, lovingly put together by Tony Bugbear. A right groovy fucker’s blend of sonic Slap And Tickle and literature. Labelled With Love.

The Fabulous New Sounds Of King Prawn out this very week on Cherry Red Records, it’s a cracker. King Prawn are back doing shows and rocking some truly excellent new music and if you click on the groovy artwork there you can hear Bugbear in conversation with Mr Devil Hands of that parish at Boogaloo Radio. Brand new hot shit fresh off the audio shovel and full of breathtaking organic goodness..it was a really fertile experience, a tiptop show, so have a listen why don’t you… also joining us, Suzy Condrad AKA the marvelous SHE ROBOT who impressed greatly with a live to air loop and electronica pop master class, and we preview bands coming up in the Dublin Castle and beyond such as Sister Mercedes (Sat 27th April) Chris Difford (RNR Book Club 24th April The Union Club, Soho) Ed Sykes (April 20th) Gary Clail SoundSystem (The Bell Inn, Bath 11th May).
