Squeeze changed the lyrics to song ‘From the Cradle to the Grave’ while appearing on The Andrew Marr Show where Cameron was also a guest.
British band Squeeze sent a clear message to Prime Minister David Cameron on Sunday’s edition of the ‘Andrew Marr Show’ when they changed song lyrics to criticise the ‘destruction of the welfare state’. The band appeared as the musical guests on the programme, which also featured Cameron giving his traditional new year interview.
Squeeze’s Chris Difford
When the band performed new song ‘From the Cradle to the Grave’, founding member Glenn Tilbrook sang a different version of the final verse as Cameron watched on. ‘I grew up in council housing, Part of what made Britain great, There are some here who are hellbent, On the destruction of the welfare state.’
It's got to the point now that I almost feel obliged to provide a bio when talking about Squeeze, the South London band who provided much of the new wave's most palatable moments. Formed in 1974 at the height of the pub rock era, childhood friends Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford had alongside them in their first incarnation one Jools Holland, and undoubtedly it was the period before his eventual departure in 1980 which saw most of their finest moments.
