So we fit so good together
Ugly Casanova is Issac Brock's of Modest Mouse side project. Legend has it that Brock was inspired by a Modest Mouse fan named Edgar Graham who followed the band around on tour, writing lyrics in a journal and recording songs. He then disappeared but his music lives on in Brock's recordings that are supposedly based on Graham's journal/recordings. Graham went by the name "Ugly Casanova."
Only one album was ever released under this moniker and that was in 2002--titled Sharpen Your Teeth. "Barnacles " was a track that was requested by someone during one of my shows while DJ-ing at KSCR. I was always worried that someone would request a song and it would turn out to be garbage and I wish I'd never played it. But I really liked this song and decided to listen to the rest of the album. If you like Modest Mouse, I can't imagine why you wouldn't like Ugly Casanova.
