Biography

London, England (1987 – 1991)

The Field Mice were a twee pop/indie pop group which formed in 1987 in London, England. Along with Heavenly, they were the most popular group on the legendary and influential label.

The band originally consisted of Bobby Wratten (vocals, guitar) and Michael Hiscock (bass), but for most of their lifespan also included Harvey Williams (guitar), Annemari Davis (keyboards), and Mark Dobson (drums). The band split up in 1991 after an unctuous tour to promote the For Keeps album, during which lead singer/guitarist Bobby Wratten announced he was leaving. He then, along with Davis and Dobson, formed Northern Picture Library. In 1995, Wratten founded Trembling Blue Stars.

Their first EP, Emma’s House was released in late 1988, but it was with their 2nd single Sensitive that they first received significant critical attention with a subsequent placing in John Peel’s 1989 Festive 50.

Over a three year career the band were often dogged with the reputation of having a post or generic Sarah Records sound despite producing tracks with numerous styles and influences. Early singles and even their sleeves harked back to early bands such as New Order and The Wake, with many tracks often featuring sequencers and samples.

    Hi, I'm an indie/lo-fi songwriter and I'm trying to make my music heard. I know spamming is not nice, but it's the only way I found to promote my songs. Feel free to tell me what you think. Here's one of my songs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aw6Ighh8MBs
