The Field Mice – For Keeps

The first Field Mice album I brought and also what turned out to be their only full studio album. I had it on cassette from a French label called Danceteria, this was one of the few releases to make it onto cassette.
There are some of the finest work of The Field Mice on here: Five Moments, Tilting Windmills and one of my favourite songs of all time This is Not Here. A song that for me epitomises shoegazing and even has a harpsichord part in it. The whole album is blissfully beautiful. It includes the emotional duets with Annemari Davies and Bobby Wratten.

One thought on “The Field Mice – For Keeps

  1. I had that cassette too. Probably purchased in the basement of Selectadisc in Nottingham, where I got quite a lot of tapes by Sarah bands. I’ve probably still got them somewhere, stuff by The Orchids, Harvest Ministers, Heavenly, The Hit Parade and I’m sure a few others.
