The Field Mice

The flagship band of the legendary Sarah Records, the Field Mice neatly encapsulated the label's trademark wispy, lovelorn pop sound and remain among the most beloved British cult bands of their time. Debuting in 1988 with the single "Emma's House," the Field Mice were originally comprised of singer/guitarist Robert Wratten and bassist Michael Hiscock; initially dismissed in the U.K. press as little more than twee pop fluff, over the course of subsequent releases like 1989's "Sensitive" and the So Said Kay EP, the group earned not only a devout following, but also grudging critical respect, in the process becoming Sarah's best-selling band. Later growing to a quintet with the additions of guitarist Harvey Williams, keyboardist Annemari Davies, and drummer Mark Dobson, the group held fast to their label's singles-only policy (or mini-LPs) until a much-requested compilation LP, Coastal, was finally released in mid-1991; a studio album, For Keeps, appeared just a few months later. However, in the wake of a November, 1991 Glasgow live date which ended in on-stage fisticuffs, the Field Mice essentially disbanded, playing one final London farewell gig before splitting for good; Wratten, Davies, and Dobson later reunited in Northern Picture Library and Trembling Blue Stars. ~ Jason Ankeny

It is funny, that bob guy. He spams the same thing everywhere. It is his mission according to his bio. I'm blessed to know he dislikes most of the stuff I like. Will never run into him at a party.

No bob, YOU get out, loser. As in get out of our solar system you royal jack azz, I'm getting tired of constantly having to tell you throughout so many musical genres and great bands to PISS OFF with your incessant douchebagger y ! No be gone for once & for all.

Yes, I read that years ago (never heard them before 2005 or so on Pandora and LastFM), and it is pretty baffling. I can just picture a brawl after a rousing rendition of Emma's House. :-)

It's quite baffling that a band that makes music that is at turns melodic, experimental , and soothing, can end in an onstage brawl. Then again, maybe that's not so baffling...

Depressing. Get out losers

There and Back Again Lane was superb, but now I'm hunting for Sarah's comp Glass Arcade, which has (inter alia) Sweetest Ache's If I Could Shine.

If you like the Field Mice and Trembling Blue Stars, you will love the compilation CD by Sarah Records called "There and Back Again Lane" it is available on iTunes. It features several Sarah Records bands that are hard to find now.

Interesting to learn about the Trembling Blue Stars connection. Now that I listen to the Field mice I can hear the evolution.

Sounds like The Sundays a bit eh?

I must agree, Letting Go brought me back to the 80's listening to New Order. That's what made me look further into the artists bio.

Letting Go is so New Orderish that I thought it was some New Order b-side I had never heard before
Report as inappropriate
Letting Go was a cool, mellow surprise. Like it!

The were a fantastic band. Short-lived, but fantastic.

No comments? I had absolutely never heard of this band before Pandora (probably because they were so short-lived) , but I like them. I'll probably buy a compilation CD one of these days.
