The Deep Freeze Mice were an English new wave band that were active between 1979 and 1989. They were based in Leicester, and consisted of the core members Alan Jenkins (guitars and singing), Sherree Lawrence (combo organ and other keyboards), and Mick Bunnage (bass guitar). The band had two different drummers over the years: Graham Summers and Pete Gregory.

The band released 10 albums during their existence on their own labels: from 1979 to 1983 on Mole Embalming Records, from 1983 to 1989 on Cordelia Records. Their music was odd, often consisting of absurd and surreal lyrics delivered in Alan's deadpan voice accompanied by bouncy pop/progressive rock music. Favoured lyrical concerns included animal rights, conformity, and science fiction.

Alan Jenkins was also a member of The Chrysanthemums in the late 1980s, and joined up with members of Po! and The Ammonites in Ruth's Refrigerator, and subsequently Jody & The Creams (later "Alan Jenkins & The Creams"). He has played guitar with The Thurston Lava Tube since 2001.
