Credits from MOLE 1 - photocopied sleeve

Sherree Lawrence Alan Jenkins Graham Summers With Erica Stock: gongs Mick: backing vocals The first side was recorded at Rainbow Sound Studios, Nottingham (Eight track), and was engineered by Andy -----. All of the songs were written arranged and produced by us. The second side was recorded at the Leicester Polytechnic, Scraptoft music studio, Sherree's bedroom and Alan's bedroom; (on a cassette recorder). We also wrote, arranged and produced that. The entire opperation cost about #500, and we had 250 copies pressed. Please buy them. We want the money back. Mike and Graham are also members of the Leeds band "the Statics" 'if its worth doing, it's worth overdoing' Anyone know why Andy Croft's surname was obliterated from the engineering credits?

Thanks for this early look at Deep Freeze Mice (gernaniums). The NWW aesthetic can really be seen in this recording. Thanks for all of the deep NWW recordings you've made available for the first time. And like musicgnome, I didn't realize how many minimal synth bands exixted and how much I enjoyed the genre.
