Anyone else want to throtle him whenever he speaks - particlarly during Modest Mouse shows?
I'm reading a book about him at the moment. I'm two chapters in. It's pretty intense
interview in the metro today was pretty good. he came accross like a nice fella
felt he wanted to be the front man and take the lead. Isaac will always be the heart and soul of that band.
It doesn't help that i detest his horrible accent.
as part of the modest mouse setup but he seems like an okay guy from the book i read about him. he's earnt the right to be a twat in my eyes...
I was quite surprised that he took such a back-seat role when they played at Primavera. He didnt seem to want to be the focus at all.
Isaac Brock should sellotape his mouth up. before every show. Worst bit of stage banter ever, at ATP - "are you bored yet?"
made me cringe out loud.
what a tool.
and that made me too do a little vom in my mouth, was at Glastonbury when he said "so you got your wellies on then?..............I've got nice ones"
So so embarrassing.
They're going to get a lot more interest now, from Smiths fans, but I doubt it will please the long-termers. I'm not at all appealed by the idea of a 'legendary' guitarist joining a fairly good indie band. Seems really wrong.
such a brilliant record with him, one thats far better than its predecessor.
When Johnny Marr and the Healers supported Oasis at the Bolton Reebok Stadium years back, my cousin threw a Jaffa Cake at him, which hit him on the right shoulder.
This was because he asked the crowd "why don't you try this on for size?" when introducing a song.
and he STILL doesn't shut up?
Some people never learn.
I reckon if you've written some of the greatest songs of the last 50 years, you wouldnt be too bothered by a flying cake.
I just think it's hilarious that my cousin hit the person who wrote some of the greatest songs of the last 50 years with a Jaffa Cake, and thought i'd share it with you.
which is gorgeous.
Apart from that, I agree with you all. Carry on.
are u bored yet?

also he just shuffles whilst u have the polar opposite in isaac basically taking his neck off with his guitar!
are the twats who go to Modest Mouse gigs just cuz of him and shout out stuff like, "The Smiffs were great" "You´re much better than Morrissey," I prefer Morrissey to this shite" "Johnny Johnny Johnny" etc
Apparently turned down an invitation from Marr to be lead guitarist for Modest Mouse to concentrate on his own solo stuff.
He had a great single 'Capital' out a year ago and an album was supposed to follow in the autumn but I can't find any news of it anywhere.
Any DiSer any the wiser?
a couple of decent songs, but generally pretty drab and non-nondescript. Hence, I was quite disappointed when Marr joined one of my favourite bands of all time, Modest Mouse.
His banter at the RAH gig was terrible.
"ello, ello, ello."
"are you bored yet?"
There was some other stuff that jarred terribly, but I can't really remember it. Also, he didn't play the harmonics in the verse of Trailer Trash. TIMEWASTER. He'd be better off in a band like Oasis.
Modest Mouse are better than the smiths.
if u think about it
Moon & Antartica + Lonesome Crowded West > Queen Is Dead
are a much better band, in my opinion like. The Smiths are fucking dull and pretentious. I find the canonisation of certain music completely ridiculous.
I remember some guy at university almost shat himself when he realised that I actually preferred stuff I listened to (like Fugazi) to stuff that he thought everyone thought was the best (like The Beatles, The Smiths). It's almost as if a certain sort of person assumes people may ostensibly listen to other stuff, but in the end everyone's favourite bands are The Beatles, The Stones, The Smiths, The Stone Roses, Oasis, etc.
just like what you like I reckon.
At the moment I'm loving a bit of 'Trailer' by Ash. They're never going to top that I reckon, even if they got Johnny Marr to play some guitar.
modest mouse are way more varied, The Smiths have some good tunes but Modest Mouse have ch000000nes + I can distinguish one song from another + Isaac has a lisp n that makes me smile =)
