Squeeze Caricature, illustrated here on July 30, 1984 with Glenn Tilbrook age 27 and Chris Difford age 29.
Squeeze are a British rock band that came to prominence in the United Kingdom during the new wave period of the late 1970s, and continued recording in the 1980s, 1990s and 2010s. In the UK, their singles “Cool for Cats”, “Up the Junction” and “Labelled with Love” were top-ten chart hits.
Though not as commercially successful in the United States, Squeeze had American hits with “Tempted”, “Hourglass” and “853-5937”, and were considered a part of the Second British Invasion.
The vast majority of their material is composed of lyrics by Chris Difford and music by Glenn Tilbrook, who are guitarists and vocalists in the band. The duo were hailed as “the heirs to Lennon and McCartney’s throne” during the band’s initial popularity in the late 1970s. The group formed in Deptford, London, in 1974.
Difford and Tilbrook began writing songs together, and soon added Jools Holland (keyboards) and Paul Gunn (drums) to form an actual band. The group performed under several names, most frequently “Captain Trundlow’s Sky Company” or “Skyco”, before selecting the band name “Squeeze” as a facetious tribute to the Velvet Underground’s oft-derided 1973 album Squeeze.
Gilson Lavis replaced Gunn on drums, and Harry Kakoulli joined on bass in 1975.
Many bands and artists who would later achieve phenomenal success would begin their careers opening for Squeeze, including Dire Straits, The Jam, R.E.M., The Specials, U2 and XTC.
The band first broke up in 1982, but reformed in 1985 and continues to perform with various new and old members.
