The vast majority of their material is composed of lyrics by Chris Difford and music by Glenn Tilbrook who are guitarists and vocalists in the band. The duo were hailed as "the heirs to Lennon and McCartney 's throne" during their peak of popularity in the late s.

Difford claims that inhe stole 50p from his mother's purse to put a card in a local sweetshop window to advertise for a guitarist to join his band, although he was not actually in a band at the time.
Tilbrook was the only person who responded to the advert. The group performed under several names, most frequently "Captain Trundlow's Sky Company" or "Skyco", before selecting the band name "Squeeze" as a facetious tribute to the Velvet Underground 's oft-derided album Squeeze.
Gilson Lavis replaced Gunn on drums, and Harry Kakoulli joined on bass in Squeeze's early career was spent around Deptford in south-east London, where they were part of a lively local music scene which included Alternative TV and Dire Straits.

The duo also contributed to a musical written and staged in Deptford during this period, entitled Labelled with Love and based in large part on the music of Squeeze.
Squeeze re-formed to play a one night charity gig inwith all five members from the Argybargy period—Difford, Tilbrook, Holland, Lavis, and Bentley. The performance was such a success that the band unanimously agreed to resume recording and touring as Squeeze. The new LP featured complex double-tracked keyboard parts which could not be duplicated by a single keyboard player in a live setting; hence, Jools' brother Christopher Holland, then aged 17, played and toured as a second keyboardist in Christopher had also played Hammond organ on the album's fourth single "Heartbreaking World", which was sung by Jools Holland.
However, Christopher Holland's tenure was short-lived, for he had signed to I.
