Afraid of Mice

A one-album "wonder" from the UK, 1981, this is a real gem and a total period piece........guessing a lot of you might be unfamiliar with this one, it's really QUITE good when taken as an artifact of the particular time/place......

Afraid of Mice were Phillip Franz Jones (vocals, flute, sax, keyboard), Geoff Kelly (bass, vocals), Roddie Gillard (guitar), and Clive Gee (drums)......the sound is COMPLETELY and DELICIOUSLY dated English 1980's new wave,  not one a whole lot of people remember, but including some good material such as "Popstar", "I'm On Fire", and "Intercontinental", actually, the whole disc is pretty damn good, give it a shot.......comments on this please, honest to God, I had forgotten about these lads, but for whatever reason I thought of this album today, drug it out, and, yeaaaaah.......

  2. Bloody Hell !!!

    I never thought I'd see this here .

    I saw AOM many times around Liverpool & the Wirral in the late 70's & early 80's - great live band .

    Phil still plays & occasionally resurrects AOM , saw them earlier this year & they can still cut it ....

  3. This is right up my alley! I don't know why I've never heard of these guys before. Thanks for making my day.
