A collection of previously unreleased demos by Joe Satriani’s first band, THE SQUARES, will be made available on July 12 via his own Strange Beautiful Music imprint.
Audio samples of all the tracks that are set to appear on “Best Of The Early ’80s Demos” can be heard below.
THE SQUARES featured Andy Milton, who passed away in 1999, on bass and vocals, Jeff Campitelli on drums and, of course, Satriani on guitar.
“In Berkeley, California back in the late ’70s, my then-brother-in-law Neil Sheehan and I decided to start a band,” Satriani said. “It would be a power pop trio with me on guitar and Neil managing and writing lyrics. We sought out a drummer and a frontman/bassist, and in December of ’79 we found them playing on the local Bay Area scene.
