Modest Mouse: Sad Sappy Sucker 12"
With material that was recorded in November 1994, "Sad Sappy Sucker" is the lost Modest Mouse album, originally intended to be the band's debut full-length. These songs mark the earliest recordings of Modest Mouse as a band, featuring the songs from the obscure "Birds Vs. Worms" 7" (which was limited 500 copies) and the "Blue Cadet-3" single, three tracks are from four-track recordings and the last nine songs were recorded for Brock's "Dial-A-Song" project run from his home answering machine. The song "Missoula City Devil" is actually by Spencer Moody (vocalist for Murder City Devils), the only message ever left on the Dial-A-Song machine by a caller. This is what quite possibly built the foundation for what arguably has become one of the most important independent bands to spill forth from the Pacific Northwest. LP includes digital download.Tags: indie melodic
