Jacob's MouseJacob's Mouse
was a three-piece grunge
band from Bury St Edmunds
. It's not unknown for rock bands to have gimmicks, but Jacob's Mouse had two - twins (Hugo and Jebb Boothby) on guitar
, and a singing drummer (Sam Marsh).
They released four albums:
- No Fish Shop Parking (Blithering Idiot, 1992)
- I'm Scared (Wiiija, 1993) - cover photo by Joe Dilworth
- Wryly Smilers (EP/singles compilation on Wiiija, 1996)
- Rubber Room (Wiiija, 1995)
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.
