What started as a home recording project soon morphed into a formidable live band of incredible musicians from around the globe. Since the early 90’s, Adam Pierce had been recording odd music experiments with only an 8-track tape machine and two crappy mics - no compressor, outboard eq nor any quality gear beyond an array of instruments - simply because that’s what a musician does. Releasing an album was never the intention, until years later in the late 90’s. After touring in other successful bands like Swirlies, The Dylan Group and Philistines Jr., it was finally time to pull a few recordings from the massive archive and create what would be the first Mice Parade album, The True Meaning of Boodleybaye. Pierce released the album in true Fugazi-style: on his own label (Bubble Core), without fanfare, sending no promo copies to press or radio.
