Editorial Reviews

Glenn Tilbrook: One For The Road is the perfect film for dreamers, music fans and open road enthusiasts everywhere! Ever wondered what it would be like to go on a cross-country tour with a rock star? Filmmaker Amy Pickard did and made a movie about it. Expecting 18-wheelers and five star hotels, she found Glenn Tilbrook, the former lead singer of Squeeze, touring in a mobile home and bedding down in roadside campgrounds. This charming documentary follows Tilbrook on every step of his first solo tour of America in his beloved - but not so reliable - home on wheels. From the search for his missing RV; adventures with engine repair and exploding generators, to a musical house call that one fan will never forget: All access, all of the time. It's the story of how an established artist adjusts to his independent surroundings. It's a commentary on the current state of the music industry. But, most importantly, it's a human-interest story that transcends its musical base. Includes exclusive live acoustic performances of Squeeze hits "Tempted," "Black Coffee In Bed," "Take Me I'm Yours," "Up the Junction," "Hourglass" and more!

FULL SONG LIST: Another Nail in My Heart, Take Me I'm Yours, Goodbye Girl, Is That Love, Third Rail, By the Light of the Cash Machine, Is That Love, Pulling Mussels (From the Shell), Up the Junction, Tempted, Slightly Drunk, When the Hangover Strikes, Voodoo Child (Slight Return), Hourglass, This is Where You Ain't, Parallel World, Some Fantastic Place, GSOH Essential

5.0 out of 5 stars For dreamers, music fans and open road enthusiasts! December 5, 2005
By Amy
Format:DVD
Ever wondered what it would be like to go on a cross-country tour with a rock star? Well, I did and I made a film about it. Expecting luxury tour buses and five-star hotels, I found Glenn Tilbrook, the former lead singer of Squeeze, touring in a mobile home and bedding down in roadside campgrounds.

This intimate film follows Tilbrook on every step of his first solo tour of America in his beloved-but not so reliable-home on wheels. From the search for his missing RV; adventures in engine repair and exploding generators, to a musical house call that one fan will never forget: All access, all of the time.

It's the story of how an established artist adjusts to his independent surroundings. It's a commentary on the current state of the music induestry. But, most importantly, it's a human-interest story that transcends its musical base. Includes exclusive live acoustic performances of Tempted, Hourglass, Take Me I'm Yours, Up The Junction, Pulling Mussels (From the Shell), Goodbye Girl, Another Nail in My Heart, Is That Love, Black Coffee in Bed, Parallel World, This Is Where You Ain't and Some Fantastic Place.

SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE:

*A never before seen interview with Squeeze lyricist Chris Difford from 2002

*My 1991 public access cable interview with Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook from my music video show in Dayton, Ohio

*Audio commentary by Glenn Tilbrook

*Glenn's Q&A from the Tokyo screening of the film and more!!

"A very funny, unique travelogue that stays with you long after the credits roll." Ian Gittins/Q Magazine

"Glenn is the antithesis of Spinal Tap rock delusion and in this film, he comes across as the hardcore troubadour who loves what he does.

I saw this movie and couldn't stop talking about it for days. Even if you know nothing about the band Squeeze this movie will make you smile. A heartwarming story about a guy playing music for all the right reasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars One for the road December 13, 2005
Format:DVD
As a long time fan of Glenn Tilbrook, both as a solo artist and founder member of Squeeze, I was delighted to hear about a film looking at life on the road with the man. I was fortunate to see a screening last year and I wasn't disappointed. Film maker Amy Pickard, is clearly a talent and has produced a movie that follows Glenn as he crosses the US of A in an RV.

It's a delight to see it finally appear as a DVD. The film is a mix of styles, part documentary and part interview that trails Glenn onstage, offstage and backstage.

Director Amy Pickard creates an atmosphere of intimacy that allows Glenn's exuberant personality to fill the screen. The music pieces are entertaining and give the viewer a "live gig" experience.

If you add to that the range of extras, this is a super package that shouldn't be missed.

If you're a Glenn fan, or Squeeze fan, this is a must. Music fans in general will also find this a good watch. Glenn is half of what is rightly regarded as, the best song writing partnership of their generation and this is a chance to see a great entertainer ply his trade.

This is Amy's first project but she has created a film that may be low on budget but is high on quality.

Nice work Amy, thanks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique, fun, excellent March 3, 2007
Format:DVD
I certainly hope Squeeze is one of those bands that, some day, get the recognition they so richly deserve. Perhaps some young band with some real musical skills will actually start writing interesting, meaningful songs, and possess the prolific ability to fill a disc with great music instead of one or two good songs so common in today's music. And maybe they will tip their hats to bands like Squeeze. Glenn Tilbrook still sounds great, and he seems to be taking it in stride that the music industry never got Squeeze the recognition (and hits) they deserved,and he's taken matters into his own hands, recording in his own studio, and touring solo. Two things that spectators in this video said stand out in my mind. One says that not many people can entertain a room full of strangers with just voice and guitar, captivate them, connect with them, and bring down the house. Glenn is one of those few. How true. The other, a Scottish gentleman, makes the point about how people who grew up in the 70s and 80s are still very much pop music lovers, but the well of good new music has run dry for us. Again, and sadly, how true. This unique and funny cross-country journey will make you remember that time when new and unique bands were the norm, and Glenn Tilbrook is still young at heart. I deducted one star for the following tragic flaw in this video: None of the performance segments feature the entire song, uninterrupted. They are used as backdrops for the plot of how Glenn interacts with his audiences and the RV cross-country trip. I'm sure the cameraman caught entire performances, and they could have at least been included in the special features section, because Glenn Tilbrook can still captivate a home audience as well. Perhaps future editions will include that awesome performance footage uninterrupted in its entirety.

5.0 out of 5 stars O.F.T.R. in three words: brilliant, fantastic, superb! January 28, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"One for the Road" is a visual delight to behold. And Glenn Tilbrook is a sonic genius.

This DVD fully encapsulates Glenn's joy of music. My brother, Joe, and I have seen Squeeze, Difford & Tilbrook and/or Tilbrook solo perform live at least 30 times. Needless to say, Glenn is one of the greatest singer/guitarists of all time. We were blessed to meet him, once again, in The OC during the 2001 "Incomplete" tour. In fact, my brother is the bloke with the Cool for Cat-esque SQUEEZE tattoo you see in this documentary.

My wife, Suzanne, has met Glenn as well. And she said, while viewing OFTR from the get-go, "he is genuinely a sincere and nice person." Indeed. Glenn always takes the time to chat, sign autographs and quaff a cold one. Cheers, then!

Squeeze made amazing music for 25 years. Now Glenn has picked up the torch, and he's running with it headlong. You won't want to miss this story...about a man, two guitars and a Cruise Master.

God bless you, Glenn!!!
