Isaac Brock put Modest Mouse together in 1993 just outside Seattle in the town of Issaquah, Washington. They really hit their stride with The Moon & Antarctica in 2000 and the hugely successful Good News for People Who Love Bad News in 2004. When former Smiths’ guitarist Johnny Marr joined the band for We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank in 2007, they released some of their most compelling music to date.
Now, with some new material finally seeing the light of day, it’s time to celebrate some of the amazing Modest Mouse songs that got us here.
“Paper Thin Walls”
“Missed The Boat”
