Modest Mouse

This is my Modest Mouse story. You know how there are bands that you have heard about in and out for several years but never got round to investigating them. Well Modest Mouse fit that bill for me. Then early 2004 i saw someone wearing their t-shirt at a My Morning Jacket show at the Gaelic Club and i thought, thats it, i need to buy some of their stuff. I bought "This is a long drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About" and "The Lonesome Crowded West" and loved both, then eventually bought everything else in their catalogue and kept wondering why i hadnt done this earlier. Then i read how a young Isaac Brock growing up in Washington had been a huge Built to Spill fan and that sealed the deal as the Boise legends are my all time favourite.
Now the exciting news, as has been reported everywhere today, they are coming to Australia. Read full details here.
A great song from "Building Nothing Out of Something"- Interstate 8.
By the way another only recently discovered band Aloha, i will write about soon.
