PRESS QUOTES &
The Squirrels onstage at The Breakroom. Pic by Vince Gipson (c) VG/poplust
"...the proper mix of rock 'n reverence and wild ass
irony... Manic Rob Morgan might be the most
entertaining frontman in town."
"On a REEEEEALLY good night, The Squirrels are probably the most
entertaining band on Earth for my money (but since I generally don't have to
pay to see them, the point is moot). They're friends so I have to say this. I would
anyway. They are a guilty pleasure and I thrive on guilt. What can I say?
THE SQUIRRELS IS GOD!"
ROY A. LONEY
"...Where, let's say, They Might Be Giants might drive a
Volkswagen bug, The Squirrels drive a BIG ASS WINNEBAGO..."
THE ROCKET magazine
"...Deeply silly... a howl of a whole different sort, a crazy covers party...
imagine the Flamin' Groovies on a weekend pass from Bellevue..."
ROLLING STONE magazine
"The Squirrels are as crazy as a one eyed tick on a rabid coondog!
And Rob Morgan is a demented genius idiot savant charlatan
jester if I ever saw one. MY KINDA BAND.
I once did a Christmas
show with the Squirrel boys and it was such a
mind blowin' juxtaposition of trad yule howls and pure sub Sweet
schloch that me and my cranked up R&B howlin' seemed
like a pimple on a giant squirrel's ASS!!!
Any band that
covers The Buoys' "Timothy" (the world's greatest/sickest
faceless pop song about coal miner cannibalism) with such demented
GLEE could be the biggest thing outta Seattle since The Kingsmen,
Jimi Hendrix, and Heart put TOGETHER!!!!!
Scott Fresh Fellow
told me there was someone I should meet.
Someone a lot like me. Well, this Rob Morgan is a lunatic! One
"episode" away from padded cells and thorazine every four hours.
A screwball nutjob who barely belongs on the planet Earth.
I like him. I'M A SQUIRRELAHOLIC!!"
Beer Drinker, Hell
"...The Squirrels are the greatest band since The Tubes.
Where was Rob in early Tubes days... he eats
Fee Waybill and spits out the shells!"
PRAIRIE PRINCE and/or RE STYLES
(of THE TUBES)
"...A daffy, energetic onslaught... devilish
modern rock fun..."
Longtime Squirrels frontmen Joey Kline & Rob "Capt." Morgan.
