“Bang Bang” has remained a curious single in the Squeeze discography, as it was nearly disowned by its songwriters Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford. Even more curious, however, is renowned wizard (and true star) Todd Rundgren covering it for the fourth installment in the Swindles series. Rundgren takes the song down a electropop wormhole, transforming the tune into something completely unique from the original recording. “Bang Bang” was produced and engineered by Rundgren and Swindles-curator Steve Mandel and is available as a limited edition 45 single for Record Store Day Black Friday 2019.
