History & Biography
This act was formed as early as 1975. The Leerdam, Dutch act played hard rock a la UFO and can be heard first on the Symfosium sampler and later on Rave On Records' Metal Clogs compilation LP of 1982 alongside Impact, Crossfire and Frankenstein. There was a self-titled demo in 1982. An EP entitled Take One was released, again through Rave On, in 1984.

Into The Fire was the 1986 demo. Stanley Sanders replaced Van Santen and the band is heard in 1988 on the Metal In Rocks 1 sampler. The band disbanded in 1995. Three members started Zixth Zense in 1999.

Squaw was a heavy rock cover band.

There was a 2008 reformation and a reunion concert. Sylvester Van Leeuwen was on guitar. Chris Van Hoogdalem was added on keyboards. The band was working on a new release a decade later.
