John MOuse's Fifth Album 'replica Figures' Featuring Sweet Baboo Released 19th Of February!


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) After a successful fan funding campaign, John MOuse releases his fifth album 'Replica Figures' out through Keep Me In Your Heart Records on the 19th of February 2018. For 'Replica Figures' John returns to work with original band member Sweet Baboo. It's been 15 years since the two worked under John's previous moniker JT Mouse and the result is a touching album with glimpses of John's black humour, which has been a signature throughout his career.

"We had talked about working together but other commitments had taken president. This is the type album I have been wanting to release for some time." Says John of his decision to work with Steve Baboo "Steve understood straight away what I was trying to achieve and we worked really quickly on just letting the songs breath and be themselves. Nothing was over thought or overworked."

'Replica Figures' features Steve Black(Sweet Baboo) on piano and bass, former guitarist of early 90's indie band Hopper (who were signed to Tony Wilson's Factory Too records), Paul Sheppard, and John's daughter Maggie Lola on backing vocals. The album circulates around the concept of memories, different memories, how they are created, the lack of memory, enforced and false memories...

"We wanted the album to have restrictions in place, a limited palette of instruments and sounds, and most importantly a vocal performance to capture emotion and the moment." Says John about recording the album "We are so used to listening to perfect vocals and I wanted to create a snapshot, much like a memory."

'Replica Figures' is John's first album since 2014's greatly received long player 'The Death of John MOuse' that was praised by The Line of Best Fit and Louder than War websites and its brilliant lead single 'I was a Goalkeeper' which featured Gareth from Los Campesinos. John MOuse, real name John Davies has been described as 'A Welsh Beck,' and 'A Less Funny Half Man Half Biscuit'. Under his previous incarnation JT Mouse he worked with Sweet Baboo (aka Steven Black) while in 2010 he scored a cult hit with a song about a gay romance with another duet, this time with TV presenter Steve Jones lifted from the acclaimed album 'Humber Dogger Forties'. Airplay support for John MOuse includes Frank Skinner on Absolute Radio, Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1, Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music and Adam Walton & Bethan Elfyn on BBC Radio Wales.

"The blend of unpredictability, wit and sharp reminiscence contained within is the real joy of this latest offering by this highly original artist a Welsh indie pop hero…reminiscent of a South Wales David Gedge" Louder Than War

"A Welsh Weezer… arty and not afraid of whopping melodies" The Line Of Best Fit
"An extraordinary piece of poetry" Mary Anne Hobbs on 'Robbie Savage'.
"There is only one John MOuse, a Welsh Superstar and an impassioned performer." Tom Robinson
