Were they any good?,
This review is from: The Fraternity Years (Audio CD)
With A Public Execution this American band led by one Ronnie Weiss achieved mortality when they were comped on the first Nuggets with a song which is like a Dylan outtake from Blonde On Blonde.
The single never rose out of the Bubbling Under section however and neither did the follow up Maid Of Spice.So Mouse & the Traps were no more than regional sellers in Texas where Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs would soon become charttoppers.
All the luck of the game really-some are fated to remain cults.
Here's a band with one of those great 50s type names that follow one word with a suggested on eg Bill Haley & the Comets.Their label had a pretty good track record and had first charted in 1956 with Cathy Carr.They seem to have landed big hits every other year-Bobby Bare (as Bill Parsons) and Lonnie Mack close to the time of Mouse & the Traps
This CD is one of around 3 which all include the same songs though here are maybe a few extras
