The Co-operative - breathtaking gig at the Waters
THEY may have been around for several decades, but the musicians that form The Co-operative could teach those young things a thing or two.
In terms of the gigs I’ve attended over the years, the one at the Waterside Arts Centre last Friday ranks as one of the most memorable as the standard of their playing was absolutely mind blowing.
The band features Nine Below Zero and former Squeeze front man Glenn Tilbrook and for fans of good music everywhere this can only be described as a dream combination.
Now I have to be honest and say I went to the WAC hoping to hear songs by Squeeze, the group that propelled Tilbrook to fame some 30 plus years ago and I have to say I wasn’t disappointed, with Goodbye Girl and Labelled With Love forming the highlights of the evening for me. There was also a funny and firmly tongue in cheek version of Squeeze’s Up The Junction, a song that is, for me, lyrically, one of the best pop songs ever written.
But this was mainly a blues affair and Tilbrook even sports a distinctive wizard like beard to prove it. A great night - as all who were there will testify.
