Mice Parade is the nom-de-son of Adam Pierce, "Mice Parade" being an anagram of Pierce's name. Formed in New York City in 1998 the electronica/post-rock band released both their debut single and full length album The True Meaning of Boodleybaye later that year.
In 2000 Pierce released the five song EP Collaborations with contributions from artists such as Jim O'Rourke, Aki Tsuyuko and Nobukazu Takemura and started adding vocals to his records with 2004's Obrigado Saudade. Read more on Last.fm
8 songs now finished toward a new album, just gratefully waiting on some cool collaborators to complete the rest. Hope to get the band back together in a year or so.
Sorry that we have no Instagram, no website or anything. This is our only spot online apart from Bandcamp. It's heartwarming that folks still remember us. Looking forward to a long overdue reunion...
Dylan Group Live album released -
before Mice Parade, back in the 90s, members Adam and Dylan had a band called Dylan Group.
last year Dylan Group did a 20-year reunion tour in Japan, but our lovely (and long since retired) promoters actually lost money due to various visa/immigration issues (no we did not keep any for ourselves of course).
these folks wanted to host this reunion out of pure enthusiasm for the music and its history. they are a couple raising a young child, and we felt a bit guilty for straining their finances.
so, we gave them this live album to release, and now it's available on all digital outlets! wacky instrumental drum and vibraphone madness, recorded live in Japan.
it's less than a fiver on this Bandcamp page, hope you enjoy it!
hello world. time for an update.
Mice Parade managed to record half a new album before Adam had to dismantle his old studio. he's spent the year converting a huge barn in the Hudson Valley into a superb new studio, and will be finishing the album in the coming months. the studio is also open to the public, so if you want to record there get in touch.
we look forward to touring once the album is out. (we will also seek a new European booking agent…)
meanwhile Adam and Dylan's old band Dylan Group is heading to Japan in March for a few reunion gigs. if you're in Tokyo or Kyoto, come dance and be merry.
Adam also toured the US this summer with Swirlies, which was a huge amount of fun. They were involved in a van accident, and while waiting for the tow truck to come, he and Andy Bernick wrote this song.
be in touch!
