2 Bad Mice (Remix) was Dj Ratty's start off tune at Fantazia New Years Eve 1991-1992
Wicked set.

Bombscare's original title was "You Can Run". It was renamed after 2 Bad Mice got caught up in a bombscare after leaving a rave at the Astoria one night.

Waremouse features on the soundtrack of the film The Jackal.

A great little EP. All four tracks are solid, with 'Bombscare' being the big hit. But as others have mentioned the standout track is the spine-tingling 'Waremouse', whose stripped-down and sinister proto-jungle sound prefigures what was to come.

bombscare aint the weakest tune here,far from it these things are for dancing,its a groove.you have to know what to do with these sort of records, If youd have been there back in da days of old,youd know what damage it did on a,50k turbosound rig!.all in all a classic ep.listen to the bass go booom!!

Arguably the record that came from the anti-commercialism music scene & broke out into the commercial music scene. Bomb Scare was played literally everywhere you went along with Slipmatt & Limes Way In My Brain. I do agree with Ilya's comment but when you can't escape a tune it soon becomes annoying. However 20 years later I can now listen to it. Waremouse is "STILL" the track for me here.

It's no exaggeration that music can put a smile on your face like no other stimulous.

Just listening to this for the first time in a couple of years. Wonderful.

Long gone are the days when artists (such as Isotonik, Rhythm Section and 2 Bad Mice) would release four cracking tracks on one record. People have taken to profiteering from the revitalisation of vinyl these days it would seem. Vive le Oldskool!

4 totally kick-ass tunes on one ep. Waremouse is very minimal but that beat is totally irresistable. Bomb Scare is the most well known tune here but also the weakest, though the breakbeat it uses is awesome; good in the mix I suppose.
