Squeeze are an English band that came to prominence in the United Kingdom during the New Wave period of the late 1970s, and continued recording successfully in the 1980s and 1990s. They are known in the UK for their hit songs “Cool for Cats,” “Up the Junction,” “Tempted,” “Labelled With Love,” “Black Coffee In Bed,” “Pulling Mussels (From the Shell),” and “Hourglass.” Though not quite as commercially successful in the U.S., “Tempted”, “Hourglass” and “853-5937” were all American chart hits for Squeeze, and the band have a dedicated following there and continue to attract new fans. All of Squeeze’s hits were written by band members Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford.

Don’t know much about these guys except they are from Oz and I love the one song I know of theirs, “Collapse on Me”. Here’s the only video of them I could find. Good song, but not as good as Collapse on Me.

Found “Collapse On Me” !

New York Dolls

New York Dolls

The New York Dolls are an American rock band, formed in New York City in 1971. In 2004 the band reformed with three of their original members, two of whom, David Johansen and Sylvain Sylvain, continue on today and have released two records of new material. The original bassist, Arthur Kane died shortly after their first reunion concert.

The band’s protopunk sound prefigured much of what was to come in the punk rock era; their visual style influenced the look of many new wave and 1980s-era glam metal groups, and they began the local New York scene that later spawned the Ramones, Blondie, Television and Talking Heads, among others.
