Maus were a three piece christchurch band from the early 90's. The brainchild of Matt davenport (pictured), maus went through a couple of different lineups with Matt firmly at the helm. Heavily influenced by the gordons, maus were not a quiet band. They rehearsed at my house a few times and you could'nt hear yourself think!
My band the Babels toured the south island with them playing to hardly anyone... but fuck we had a good time!
This recording made in the lounge of a flat in cramner square by James Woods catches them at their finest hour. This is the only recording i know of they made. Check out some great songwriting and some awesome tonal vibrations. Another lost NZ classic!
