Squeeze has always sort of been a guilty pleasure of mine.

Guilty?!? :) I’ve been a hardcore Squeeze fan most of my adult life. In fact, if I had to name my favorite song of the eighties, it would be “Black Coffee in Bed.”
My husband loved the use of the iPad in the Fallon appearance.

I guess I just sort of always thought of them as cheesy mainstream pop from the ’70s/’80s. I used to have a tape copy of the Singles that I played so much that it warbled and eventually snapped.
They’re also kinda like the British Manudo with all their lineup changes and incarnations over the years.

British Menudo? Ouch. That’s crazy insulting for a band that’s always been a critical darling. I love early Squeeze. And Elvis Costello produced (most of) East Side Story.

Look at this diagram of band members over the last 30 years. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/timeline/b762da14bfbfef5d920ad5833a95e318.png

Oh, and as I mentioned, I love (early) squeeze too. I never realized they were critical darlings, though.
