white mice

Here’s one you might not have expected: Adelaide’s hard ‘n’ heavy Exploding White Mice are reforming for shows, in conjunction with the Adelaide Film Festival.

The Mice were a staple in the ‘80s and ‘90s with their landmark “Nest of Vipers” EP (1983) and a string of albums with a variety of line-ups. They were renowned as one of the best Radio Birdman-Ramones influenced outfits in Australia and took a distinctly poppy turn in their later days.

They haven’t played a full show since 1999 but will reconvene at the Producers Bar in their home city on October 12. The line-up will be Jeff Stephens (guitar), Paul Gilchrist (vocals), Andy Macqueen (bass), Dave Bunney (drums) and Chris Murphy (guitar.) Buy tickets here.

STOP PRESS: Exp-loding White Mice will play the River Rocks festival Recovery Party at the Barwon Club in Geelong on November 12.
