A Public Execution by Mouse

Chords

Bob Dylan is NOT Mouse despite the fact that the two sound exactly
  alike on record.  Mouse's 'A Public Execution' has caused all kinds of
  comment because people find it hard to believe that someone else can
  actually sound so similar to Bob Dylan.  In fact, one of Columbia
  Records' public relations men got the fright of his life when he went to
  a radio station (which shall remain nameless, but you know which one!)
  and the playful jocks covered the label of Mouse's disc and told the
  unfortunate P.R. man that it was a Dylan record.  -- KRLA Beat, 1966

If anyone is interested in a Mouse interview (from Texas punk 'zine _Not
Fade Away_), get back to me.  --AWR
