Johnny Marr
Modest Mouse has been busy recording a new album, tentatively titled, We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank, with former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr. What began as a simple project helping Isaac Brock and Modest Mouse has turned into a full-time gig as Marr has officially joined the band.

Brock was quoted as saying:

"He made a cautious commitment to write and record with us, and then the tighter we got, he was like, 'okay, let's tour too.' Then he was pretty much a member of the band - not pretty much. He's a full-blown member of the band. It's really fuckin' nice."

Wow, that should make a great band even better.

Such a solid band over the years. Never sold out when they unexpectedtly got all "hyped". Such passion and songwriting make Brock a true musician.
