      I am not all that familiar with them except for the "hit" a year or two ago, but the band name is one of the all-time stupidest.
      Good deals with: "georgestrings," "Radiohead, lol," "Dr. Scottie C," "sonaboy," "elliseye," "FckStick Jones," "Outlier," "Polk Salad." "lowbrow," "rindgecore," "rparchen," "archer28," "dangolguitartec," "Mr. Goodbomb," "pinchegordo," "xopyc," "tincob," "waveman," "blueshawk1," "JoshuaTSP," "SPONGEBOB," "clarksean," "xtchc1978," "panoramic," "jimmyjameb0," "gschmittling," "C1993," "LUVSWATCH," "Markus RN," "imarks."

        "their name derives from a passage from the Virginia Woolf story "The Mark on the Wall" which reads "...and very frequent even in the minds of modest, mouse-coloured people" -wikipedia .

        i'm pretty sure it's talking about death being frequent. i can't recall.

        Their latest album is their best album since The Lonesome Crowded west.

        which is one of the most perfect albums ever made.

          Two things:

          1) I've seen Modest Mouse.

          2) I was listening to "Idle Moments" yesterday on the airplane.

              Dunno much about the Virginia Woolf reference, I thought it was the "anti-Mighty Mouse" or something akin. Still dumb . . . unless you are a big Woolf fan. Maybe they should have considered "Virginia's Woolves."

                you.are.dead.to.me.


                Moon&A had some great tunes. however, the song flow wasn't very perfect. it sounds like a collection of songs and not an album.


                you.fail.

                .

                though it is their #3 album.

                        Sorry, but everything I have heard from them (admittedly not much) has sounded silly to me at best.

                          most people that dislike 'em dislike their singing.

                          i enjoy it. but, i understand other people not liking it.
