Jacob's Mouse

Jacob's Mouse was a three-piece grunge band from Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, England. It's not unknown for rock bands to have gimmicks, but Jacob's Mouse had two - twins (Hugo and Jebb Boothby) on guitar and bass, and a singing drummer (Sam Marsh).

They released four albums:

Despite some critical acclaim, and a successful UK tour supporting Babes in Toyland and Trumans Water, they did not realise the success that other (US-based) grunge bands did. The band split up in 1995. Marsh went on to record a couple of singles with Machismo's.
