The Hollywood Squares were an American band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1977. They are probably best known for their classic "Hillside Strangler". Released in a very limited edition on the trio's own 'Square Records' label, the issue quickly sold out and has since become a highly sought-after collectible. The single has reappeared in various bootleg incarnations over the years including the 1989 compilation album "Killed By Death #1" (KBD#1). The original master tapes were used on the LP and CD "Hillside Strangler: Restrangled", released in 2006.
