Started in 1984 and described by Spencer as 'powerful guitar rock and roll reminiscent of the Detroit sound'.
The name was inspired from a scene in the film Rock 'n' roll highschool where a 'rockometer" is used by the headmistress to demonstrate the damaging affects of rock music which makes a small white mouse explode.
The Mice's line up over the years included Giles Barrow, Andrew Bunney, Gerry Barrett, David Bunney, Paul Gilchrist, Jack Jacomas, Andy McQueen, David Mason, Craig Rodda and Jeff Stephens.
The Mice had local as well as international success touring twice to Europe before splitting in April 1999.
Some members of the band have gone on to play in other bands which have achieved international success such as Andrew Bunney currently the drummer in The Ramonettes http://home.iprimus.com.au/ramone/
