Here are a few things you need to know about Modest Mouse.
(1) This band has been around in one form or another since 1993. They were formed in Issaquah, Washington, which is a suburb of Seattle.
(2) Drummer Jeremiah Green once took a leave of absence back in 2003 because he had a nervous breakdown. Don’t worry. He’s fine.
(3) Johnny Marr, he of The Smiths, was a member of the band between 2006 and 2009. When he left, there was a long recording hiatus, something that wasn’t broken until this past March 17 when their most recent album, Strangers to Ourselves, was released.
(4) Singer Isaac Brock spent a good amount of time growing up in “the Shed,” a structure built next to his parents’ trailer. And
(5) Did I mention that he once earned money posing as a nude model and took part in medical experiments?
