Modest Mouse // Documentary

A short documentary film has been made about one of the greatest bands of all time: Modest Mouse.

Having seen the band several times over what is now almost a decade, in small venues as well as in London’s Royal Albert Hall, it is very interesting to see how the band begun, and footage of their first gigs on the Seattle scene and nearabouts a decade before I had even heard of them. I have never read Pitchfork, but they can be commended for being involved in putting together a film about the origins of the band.

Alongside new interviews, the film also features archive footage of Isaac Brock’s hometown and trailer-park which inspired many of the images conjured on This is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing to Talk About and subsequent albums, as well as revelations about the meanings of many of the band’s infamous lyrics by running through several of the brilliant songs on Lonesome Crowded West.

“One for the fans”, but do watch the film here.
