Down the years Squeeze songs have often highlighted social concerns, whether covering teenage pregnancy in ‘Up The Junction’ or getting old in ‘Labelled With Love’.
Their current UK Tour is called ‘Food For Thought’, which continues this trend with support for the Trussell Trust. The trust’s aim is to help to raise food, funds and awareness of the 1,200 food bank centres across the UK and also campaign for change to end the need for them. The lyrics in ‘Food For Thought’ Squeeze’s latest EP reflects their political views and dissatisfaction with the status quo:
‘Cosy contracts for their mates; Cutting help right to the bone; Empty stomachs freezing homes.’
On the night, we noted that many Squeeze fans entering the Brighton Centre were contributing to the call for food and donations. We could see that there was much kindness from these people and thus we were inquisitive to learn the final tally for the night. The figures arrived today – Squeeze fans had donated 265.7kg in food and £1,304 in cash at the Brighton Centre concert.
CONGRATULATIONS! You made us proud!
