Songfacts: Chris, how do you feel about the "New Wave" label that I always read to describe Squeeze over here? Chris Difford: It's silly. The only Punk band I knew was Iggy Pop and I didn't really know what New Wave was, but it came and it went very quickly. It never really meant anything to me. I think we're more like The Monkees than a Punk band. Glenn: Yeah, we came up at that time. It's not a label I would give to us. I think we could be called Pop music. And I think Pop music at its best can be truthful and funny and honest.
