Here we start with a 1985 release of the marvelous, exciting,fantastic,....DEEP FREEZE MICE.....and since 2 of their best LPs were recently posted to Lost In Time blog ...i start their discography postage backwards:). More to follow!
The Deep Freeze Mice made ten albums in between 1979 and 1989, all with the same line up except that they changed drummers once. On these first three"My Geraniums are Bulletproof", "Teenage Head in My Refrigerator" and "The Gates of Lunch", they were Alan Jenkins - guitar and singing, Sherree Lawrence - keyboards, Mick Bunnage - bass guitar and Graham Summers - drums. Graham played on a few tracks on this one"Saw a Ranch House Burning Last Night", but then Pete Gregory took over the percussion department. The next two albums were"I Love You Little Bo Bo with your Delicate Golden Lions" (a double L.P.) and "Hang on Constance Let Me Hear the News". These were probably the two best ones. The next one was recorded live in Switzerland in 1985Next one, "Rain is when the Earth is Television", is a compilation of various unreleased tracks. It has now been dismantled and the tracks have been restored to their appropriate chronological places as extra tracks on the CD releases of all the other Deep Freeze MIce L.P.s"War, Famine, Death, Pestilence and Miss Timberlake" was released in 1987 and the last one, "The Tender Yellow Ponies of Insomnia" was released in 1989. Alan had already formed The Chrysanthemums just after "Timberlake" was recorded, and after the last Deep Freeze Mice album he also helped put together Ruth's Refrigerator. After that he played in The Creams for most of the 90's and now plays in The Thurston Lava Tube. Sherree got married, moved away and raises children and cats. Mick works for Loaded magazine in London. Pete still plays drums in bands such as Evil Dick and the Banned Members (although I think he just left them).
