Some Fantastic Place by Chris Difford

Chris 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’.  Even before his first release in 1977, his love of writing lyrics has never wavered.

Over the course of a thirteen-album career with Squeeze, it was clear from the very beginning that Difford has few peers when it comes to smart, pithy lyricism.  His ‘kitchen-sink drama’ style has drawn plaudits from fans on both sides of the Atlantic, and his influence is keenly felt today.  The likes of Lily Allen. Mark Ronson, Kasabian, Razorlight and many more have recognized the debt they owe to Squeeze’s music and to Difford’s way with words, while journalists were moved by his winning combination with Glenn Tilbrook to dub the pair ‘The New Lennon and McCartney’.

In Some Fantastic Place, Chris Difford charts his life from his early days as a dreaming boy in south London with a talent for poetry to becoming a member of one of Britain’s greatest bands and beyond.  Along the way he reveals the inspiration and stories behind Squeeze’s best-known songs, and his greatest highs and lows from over four decades of making music.

Peer & Press Reviews

With hilarious honesty, Squeeze’s frontman reveals how his pop career went well and truly Up The Junction!

Mail on Sunday

Loving the Chris Difford autobiography. “Dad said if I joined a rock band I’d be an alcoholic, drug addict & skint.  Turns out he was right.”

David Hepworth, music journalist
