This week, we wrap up the Squeeze discography with their 2017 album, The Knowledge. On this outing, the band pushes the excitement, inventiveness, and energy of Cradle to the Grave up to 11. When it hits, it really hits ("Innocence in Paradise," "Departure Lounge," "Patchouli"), but it's by no means perfect ("A&E," "Rough Ride"). Also, still no Difford lead vocal--what's up with that?
Sitting in the guest host chair this week, Paul Mosier. Talking to Paul is always a trip. You never know where the conversation is going to go, and it's fantastic. Paul is the author of a number of books, including three middle grade novels for HarperCollins: Train I Ride, Echo's Sister, and Summer and July (forthcoming). Be sure to check out Paul's work and follow him on social media:

As always, I want to stress the importance of supporting the artists that are featured on this series, whether that’s through buying their music and merch, attending one of their concerts, or even simply following them on social media. Squeeze is indeed very active, recording and touring both as a band, and Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford with their respective solo endeavors--see them in whatever capacity you're able. Additionally, keep up to date on all their latest doings at http://www.squeezeofficial.com/ and through their social media (@squeezeogram on, appropriately, Instagram and @squeezeofficial on Twitter).
