Mouse And The Traps - 1966-68 - The Fraternity Years
Mouse and the Traps is the name of a garage rock band from Tyler, Texas that released numerous singles between 1965 and 1969, two of which--"A Public Execution" and "Sometimes You Just Can't Win"--became large regional hits. The leader of the band, nicknamed "Mouse", has vocal stylings that are highly similar to the nasal voice of Bob Dylan; his real name is Ronnie Weiss. Interestingly, two of their best known songs – "A Public Execution" and a cover of "Psychotic Reaction" – are not actually credited to this band but, respectively, to simply Mouse and Positively 13 O'Clock instead. A planned album for the band never materialized.
