Finally! Out this week on Night People is The Deep Freeze Mice compilation, The Best Of The Deep Freeze Mice 1979-1988. The LP features tracks from the 10 albums the band recorded by the four-piece between 1979 and 1988, highlighting their unique brand of post-punk/art rock which incorporated elements of psychedelia, punk, and British pop music. Musically think somewhere between The Animals and some of the poppier music on the It’s War Boys roster. Teaser tracks like “Something Else Instead,” originally from the 1984 album I Love You Little Bo Bo With You Delicate Golden Lions, sound like the organ-laden garage punk of Hank Wood & The Hammerheads doing their best to approximate Sarah Records. “A Ten Legged Beast,” on the other had, could be a lost British Invasion song from the 60s, except for the band’s comically absurd lyrics. The 16 songs that make up the album, compiled by guitarist/vocalist Alan Jenkins himself, does a good job representing the entirety of their ten albums, and features some essential British music of the 1980s.
