"Murder Mouse Blues Band is the kind of blues you can use"

Gary Allen-The Charlie Daniels Band and J.J. Cale

"The Murder Mouse Blues Band was the Highlight"

Graham Watson In the Cave General Manager RTR FM, Live Review

"Fill The Hole is reminiscent of The Pogues at their finest"

Jane Harding 2WCR 99.5 FM


It’s quite foreseeable that blues purist would give their nod of approval to the Murder Mouse Blues Band , as there’s an authenticity to the band (while often faked by other bands in the transparent hope of securing credibility ) is pretty obviously not bullshit.

Added to this touches of genre-spanning to include some tricks most often utilised in country and folk (American and Irish predominantly), and the resulting mix allows the Murder Mouse Blues Band to tailor their sound to suit each song-which seems to be their approach.

There are Dylan-esque rapid fire vocals atop of ragtime style beats, Chuck Berry style riffs atop a country walking bass line and so on . . .all within an overall “new traditionalists” context that seems to be more familiar in approach to the Pogues or the Bad Seeds. As it needs to be, the musicianship in this band is spot on. There are lots of chops around the place, but nobody is overplaying for the sake of ego, nor do the vocals drive the song, they’re in the front to be sure, but they’re riding shotgun.The music with all it’s accurate sounds and playing, is the key to why this band is onto such a good thing.

The variety is there, the songs are there within the variety, and the honest touch is there within the songs within the variety.All of the boxes are ticked with these guys."

Mike Wafer Xpress Magazine August 10

"These guys must be from Jupiter, there is no other explanation, an incredibly refreshing, creative and original blues and roots band " The West Australian, the Liftout

" . . .it seems being located on an island once home to prisoners, thieves, and murderers have seeped into the tales they spin, check out the haunting “Death Letter Blues” and raucous “Apocalypse Blues” for proof . . ."
