I bought For Squirrels big label debut album after reading a pretty good Rollingstone review that noted the band had ceased due to a fatal auto accident that involved the group’s van. As part of that crash three members of For Squirrels were killed, along with the band’s manager.
Example, that disc, is pretty strong across the board. Nothing sensational, but none-the-less listenable from start to finish, and a solid first attempt. Unfortunately Example was released a month after the holocaust.
My understanding is the band was pretty good live (there were playback issues with YouTube share of the live performances, so I stuck with the album track). As for the band’s name, the apocryphal story is the band would play anywhere, anytime for anyone. They would even play “for squirrels.”
Would have been good to see how they might have developed. Gotta love a band with Rickenbackers at bass and guitar.
