Ugly Casanova

According to legend, "Ugly Casanova" is the pen name used by a crazed Modest Mouse fan named Edgar Graham who broke into the band's show in Denver in 1998. Intrigued by the man's journals full of potential song lyrics, frontman Issac Brock assembled a hodgepodge of Pacific Northwestern friends to realize some of the words as songs in 2000. The resulting album, Sharpen Your Teeth, appeared in May 2002 on Sub Pop. In this incarnation, Ugly Casanova was the work of Brock, Brian Deck and Tim Rutili (of Califone and Red Red Meat), Paul Jenkins (of the Black Heart Procession), and John Orth (of Holopaw). Furthering the manic alt-country of The Moon & Antarctica-era Modest Mouse, the album features plaintive melodies and Brock's trademark, rough-hewn voice singing his "found" lyrics. The band toured in June and July 2002 with Kingsbury Manx and Iron & Wine. ~ Daphne Carr, Rovi

More ugly...
They are a great band
Ugly Casanova: most underrated album ever!
jdavenport29 4 5
great story but probably based very little in fact.
But its how MM and issac work, unorthodox yet utterly f**king brilliant
ok guys, Issac Brock later went on to say that the whole story was a fake to prevent judgment of this band due to the success of Modest Mouse

This album was released in efforts to find Graham after he went missing, supposedly a beckon from the band trying to find him. Graham was apparently a homeless, sort of crazy but genius guy. And after offering a "unique" perspective on MM music, was kind of adopted by the band. I've never heard anything as to whether they ever found him. Real or not, Graham was truly a wonderful influence on the band musical direction.
i love this whole dang cd my dad found it in an alley and gave it me and then it was like... my gold s**t!! love that story bout the lyrics, omg dude the lyrics.. haha, lovin this s**t.
i thought "edgar graham" was a charecter made up by brock to avoid the press and interviews and was so he was able to put sharpen your teeth on another label and have complete creative control. thats why graham "dissapeared " after 2003. does anyone know more of this story?
I can't help but agree with Colin. Although I am a huge fan of modest mouse their new album was something of a dissapointme n t . And the second I heard Ugly Casanova I was so excited.
man oh man
i agree with danny, they need more.
i love issac's voice and then with something besides modest mouse i was quite pleased. because modest mouse seems to be going commercial.. . there new CD *sighs* i love all of there CD's except for that one
has everyone heard the story of edgar graham?
i just want more and more of this!
