Squire

Though they never received the recognition they deserved, Squire was one of the earliest and finest mod-revival bands of the late '70s. Like the founders of the revival, the Jam, Squire were able to transcend the limits of the genre with their high-quality blend of pop smarts and songcraft which drew equal parts from a punk spirit and '60s sensibilities.

The group formed in Guildford, England around 1977 as a covers band consisting of Enzo Esposito (vocals/bass), Steve Baker (guitar), and Ross Di'Landa (drums). In June 1978, songwriter/guitarist Anthony Meynell joined just prior to a high-profile gig opening for the Jam. The addition of Meynell changed the band's focus to producing original material, and by 1979, they had released their first single for ROK Records, "Get Ready to Go." While the single gained them some airplay, their biggest break came with the newly termed mod revival movement and their appearance on the legendary Mods Mayday album, which featured two new songs by the band. Ian Page of Secret Affair (one of Squire's mod peers) had just started his own I-Spy label and signed the band on the merits of their appearance on Mods Mayday. The signing led to some personnel changes. First, Di'Landa was replaced by Kevin Meynell, then Baker quit without replacement. In 1979, Squire released two wonderful singles for I-Spy: "Walking Down the Kings Road" and "The Face of Youth Today." Out of the two singles, only "Walking Down the Kings Road" charted. In 1980, Squire switched record labels, signing with another independent, Stage One Records. The band's first release on Stage One was "My Mind Goes Round in Circles" which, like its predecessors, barely made an impact on the charts. Frustrated by a lack of success, the band essentially dissolved when the last original member, Esposito, left.

Anthony Meynell decided to give it another try when he started his own label, Hi-Lo in 1981. The first release was Hits from 3000 Years Ago, a collection of demos and leftovers from the original Squire lineup. He reactivated the band, adding Jon Bicknell on bass, and releasing a new single, "No Time for Tomorrow," in 1982. Though they were still virtually unknown in their homeland, America had begun picking up on Hits from 3000 Years Ago. Delayed by a short promotional tour in the States, their first proper album, Get Smart, was finally released late in 1983. They never made the breakthrough into the mainstream, but the album and its follow-up EP, September Gurls, (the title track was a cover of the Big Star classic) in 1984 became cult classics in American power pop circles. Squire began preparation for their next album, Smash, but decided to call it quits before its completion. ~ Chris Woodstra

Scootering Sounds is my favorite band! I saw them in Chicago and they rocked out. The best part was when the singer was drunk off his a** and started spitting on the crowd. Then some guy from the crowd threw a beer bottle and hit the singer. Then the guitarist kicked the guy who threw the bottle. Then everyone jumped on stage and the stage collapsed.
