Conversation: Author James Griffiths - 'The Pop Music Played'

5/20/2022
Many columns of type have been spread across the decades in the music press when it comes to Squeeze. However, very few books on the band have been published. Taking into account the crucial formative years in the global public eye, music journalist James Griffiths has penned 'The Pop Music Played,' a detailed deep-dive into the years 1978-1982. This time period - considered 'classic' by Squeeze fans - has rarely been chronicled as much as Griffiths has put to print in book form. In this...

Conversation: Dan Rivkin and 'Cosi Fan Tutti Frutti'

1/30/2022
Few releases in Squeeze history generate as much commentary as 'Cosi Fan Tutti Frutti.' While 1985 saw the band reform with original keyboard player Jools Holland and introduced bassist Keith Wilkinson, this album has had its share of criticisms (from its 'sound' of the period) to praises (the songs!). Dan Rivkin weighs in with his enthusiastic and insightful observations on why this release needs to be revisited from a 2022 perspective and how we can help Squeeze fans appreciate the word...

What about that band member who holds a group together with their solid rumblings? Tom and I discuss in 'a round and a bout' way the history of players who have filled the bass role in Squeeze. From Harri Kakoulli to Owen Biddle, we offer up a lively exploration on where each one has fit in, review their unique styles and... theorize on possible 'dream' bassists that could have been!

*Audio quality for this episode is slightly diminished due to technical difficulties* The iconic Squeeze album ‘Singles - 45s and Under’ - gets the Cool For Cats treatment, as I welcome Dr. Kit O’Toole for a hearty discussion on this fan fave. While this release came out in 1982 and covered only a 4-year span, for anyone who wants to get their feet wet in the discovery of the band’s ‘greatest hits,’ this album is for you. Kit and I jump into how and when she discovered this release, make...

Interview - Amy Pickard, Director 'Glenn Tilbrook: One For The Road'

11/2/2021
Welcome to the first of many conversations about Squeeze. In this debut episode, I'm joined by 'rockumentary' filmmaker Amy Pickard. Back in 2001, she put pedal to the metal and hit the highways and byways of America, traveling in an RV with Glenn Tilbrook in one of his many (but certainly not last) solo tours. What followed was a journey not entirely expected and as we discover, this film chronicled not only Glenn's performances but his interaction with fans, his recollections of his days...
