‘Sad Sappy Sucker’ is Modest Mouse’s ‘lost album’. It was recorded by K Records’ Calvin Johnson in 1994 and was supposed to be the band’s debut but delays shelved the record and it disappeared.
All 12 songs recorded during the Dub Narcotic Studio sessions are on the album, including the impossible to find ‘Worms Vs. Birds’ 7”.
As a bonus treat, there are nine songs from Modest Mouse lead singer, guitarist, banjoist, and songwriter Isaac Brock’s ‘Dial-a-Song’ project. These were on his answering machine every day and could only be heard by calling in.
