  • The Band Forms

    The Band Forms
    Isaac Brock, Eric Judy, and Jeremiah Green. Band began work in impromtu practice area.
  • "This is a Long Drive for Someone With Nothing to Think About" Released

    "This is a Long Drive for Someone With Nothing to Think About" Released
    Band's first full length album. A masterpiece from start to finish. Truly remarkable and life changing, if you let it.
  • "Interstate 8" EP released

    Out of print and rare EP. Very difficult to find, and features amazingly coarse and striking guitar tones. Alternate versions of songs on "Long Drive" also found on this disk.
  • "The Fruit That Ate Itself" EP released

    "The Fruit That Ate Itself" EP released
    An interesting piece of work. Some of the bands more abstract work, features tracks like "Karma's Payment" and "The Fruit That Ate Itself."
  • "Lonesome Crowded West" LP released

    "Lonesome Crowded West" LP released
    Another Modest Mouse masterpiece. Probably one of the band's two most watershed releases (along with "Long Drive"). Listen to this one many times to grasp its gravity.
  • "Night on the Sun" EP Released

    "Night on the Sun" EP Released
    Rare Japan-only relese
  • "Building Nothing Out of Something" Compilation released

    "Building Nothing Out of Something" Compilation released
    Features samples of the bands work up to this point in their career. The Mouse classic "Broke" can be found here. One of their strongest works for sure right up there with "Long Drive" and "Lonesome Crowded West."
  • "The Moon and Antartica" LP released

    "The Moon and Antartica" LP released
    Perhaps the last of the great full length albums from the bands. Everyone should hear "The Stars are Projectors" at some point in their lives.
  • "Sad Sappy Sucker" Released

    "Sad Sappy Sucker"  Released
    A sampling of tracks from the band's earliest days. Incredibly harsh work abounds. A tough but good listen.
  • "Everywhere and His Nasty Parlour Tricks" EP released

    "Everywhere and His Nasty Parlour Tricks" EP released
    A really solid EP. "Night on The Sun" is a classic. Definitely worth a listen.
  • "Good News for People Who Love Bad News" LP released

    "Good News for People Who Love Bad News" LP released
    This is the album that made this band famous. It features the hits "Float On" and "Ocean Breathes Salty." The album is a let-down from star to finish, although Brock's lyrics do remain solid: "Life handed us a check and we said "we worked harder than this."
  • "We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank" EP released

    "We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank"  EP released
    Fitting title. This album basically signifies the death of all things decent. The band totally descends into a state of mediocre consumerist bliss. Dreadful to think of, even worse to listen to.
  • "No One's First and You're Next" EP released

    "No One's First and You're Next" EP released
    Okay, so back to some sense of normalcy with songs like "King Rat" and "Guilty Cocker Spaniels." Not their greatest work, but not terrible. This album is made up of songs that did not make it onto "We were dead" but they definitely should have.
