Squeeze and The Walking Dead

Recent analysis has shown that Up The Junction by Squeeze and The Walking Dead occupy the same fictional universe.

Evidence for this comes from the lyrics, extract below;

“She gave birth to a daughter
Within a year a walker” (my italics)

The rest of the song now makes much more sense. Her fathers descent into alcoholism is because he cannot do the thing he knows needs to be done, blow that zombie toddler away.

The soldier the child’s mother is with is clearly Rick, in those confused times after the fall of civilisation it would have been easy to think that anyone in uniform is a soldier.

I can only hope that he found the courage to do what was needed.
