Still, even genius producers have to eat and he wasn't exactly flavour de jour in the 80s. Correct me if I am wrong but I think Squeeze was his last commercial project as a producer in that era.



Squeeze was late 70's. Apart from producing (most of) their debut LP, he also produced their earlier Packet Of Three ep IIRC. Now that's a great little record (1st record I ever bought without having ever heard the band in question, bought after an article in Sounds iirc).

Featuring some great riffs, there was a definite punk influence to PO3. Nothing of the cheeky chappy pop that came later (not that there's anything wrong with that. I think they made some fab 45's).

His presence is also felt on the first Happy Mondays album. Still love that one...
