Below is a video of one of, what I think, is the greatest bands of our time. It covers a lot of their writing and recording of “Lonesome Crowded West” but, it shows a lot more than just writing and recording. I was fortunate enough to grow up before the internet is what is is, before youtube, before social networking and it’s really cool to hear about the inner-working of record labels and bands before the internet. Very nostalgic. How we used to book tours, or promote our shows without myspace, pressing our own merch, etc. The insight to the Modest Mouse recording and writing is great but overall it’s just nice for me to look back and remember how the music industry and scene was. And, I haven’t listened to the Lonesome Crowded West album in a while and it really made me find it again.
