• Mouse And The Traps, from Texas are principally known for the classic garage and folk-rock of ‘A Public Execution’, ‘Maid Of Sugar’ and ‘Lie, Beg, Borrow & Steal.’ Based in the eastern city of Tyler and evolving from a group of pickers who hung out at Robin Hood Brians’ recording studio, Mouse (Ronnie Weiss) and his band ruled the region in the latter half of the 60s. • The Traps made a name for themselves throughout the south with some incendiary performances and scored several regional hits, with the Dylan-laced ‘Execution’ making the national charts in 1966. Signed to the venerable Cincinnati indie Fraternity, with a dozen singles under their belt, there were rumours among collectors for years that a Mouse And The Traps LP existed. • There never was an album, but now Big Beat has decided to condense the contents of their well-received Mouse & The Traps CD anthology The Fraternity Years into one all-killer vinyl edition. It’s the kind of power-packed disc fans would have hoped for back in the day. As a special bonus, it includes a previously unissued alternate version of the act’s 1968 single ‘Sometimes You Just Can’t Win.’ track listing SIDE ONE 1. A PUBLIC EXECUTION 2.
