Hello everyone.

I guess it's time to make my first initial introductory post. This is the first community I've ever joined so I'm not entirely sure how things work around here, so please keep that in mind ;) Originally I was simply just a Modest Mouse fan, but I eventually branched out to Ugly Casanova, oh how I'm ever so thankful. Modest Mouse are virtually unknown where I come from (New Zealand) but thanks to a good friend in the states I was gradually introduced to Modest and Ugly. It's also rather depressing because I doubt they'll ever do a tour around my part of the world, but I'm sure I'll see them live one day, probably overseas.

I'm a huge fan of Isaac Brock. He's pretty much my musical god. I love his voice, it actually makes me sort of happy - in a very strange way. I absolutely adore Ugly Casanova, it's definitely not instantly gratifying music but it's the kind that stays with you. It's not fleeting like most music out there today. My favourite songs from 'Sharpen your teeth' are Barnacles and Cat Faces, they're oddly profound. The whole album is brilliant, in a largely musically superficial world it reignites my waning hope in modern music!

current mood: sleepy

My names Aaron, I've been a huge fan of Ugly Casanova for a really long time, so I was surprised & excited to see that theres actually a community, solely for ugly casanova! Here is a song that I found, its supposedly Isaac & Califone, its a cover of Slayer I believe.

South Of Heaven

And here are a couple songs by a couple different artists, I think people who are into Ugly Casanova could probably get into these guys too

Paint The Town by The Murder Mystery

Court by Hubcap City

Also, I thought you guys might be interested inTHIScommunity!

i think ugly casanova is really cool shit. it's not as good in my opinion because they don't have that long, drawnout-ness as some of the modest mouse, and it seems more rustic. however you can see isaac brock's genius in the album when you read the words or hear some of the guitar, especially in songs like things i don't remember and digging holes in the water.

this community seemed good because it seems like there are members here who actually like modest mouse for their beauty. like the people who actually took the time to listen to long drive twenty times before realizing how incredible it is. because shit like modest mouse is too deep to get on the first listen; the first album i heard was the moon and antarctica and i thought it sucked. but that's because this music isn't the instant pleasure, fill in the blanks music that is played so much on the radio or mtv. most things worth something don't come that easily, and modest mouse is worth a lot to me and the other members who liked brock when he played for himself, not for his record label like in good news. i hope you all agree and whatnot.

current mood: fuck

hi. i got an ugly casanova tattoo about a week ago. of the girl on the inside cover of sharpen your teeth, drawn by thomas campbell. sadly enough i dont have a digicam so i cant show a picture of it. but i was wondering if anyone else has gotten an ugly casanova or modest mouse tattoo and has pictures. im really interested in seeing body art inspired by some of my favorite bands. caliphone and blackheart procession tats would also be cool to see.

ha this is just going to be a typical "hi i just joined the community and thought i'd say hi" post.

i'm in love with modest mouse (no shit)
i'm in love with ugly casanova (no shit)

i've yet to find a site with accurate UC lyrics so if anyone finds one, please do tell.

i asked my boyfriend to learn how to play hotcha girls. now he plays it to put me to sleep at night. why i'm typing this, i have no idea.

you have no idea how glad i am that the name of this community is spelled correctly. i see "casSanova" everywhere and i cringe.

well. i think that's about all.

hope everyone is having a great saturday.

hey im new to the community. i heard about ugly casanova through modest mouse like probably 95% of all ugly casanova fans have. i think its as good as modest mouse for sure. Sharpen your teeth is a great album and a must buy for anyone into indie. and isaac is the shit.

2:54 am - blah blah, hello, blah blah

So I just started listening to modest mouse thanks to a chance hearing of Good News. I had heard them here and there for a few years now, but wasn't intrigued enough until now. So, anyway, I got the new album, and a bunch of other albums, and kind of became very intrigued by Brock. And then I heard about Ugly Cassanova, and wow, Sharpen Your Teeth is an absolutely incredible album. So, hello.

I just finished a 3 day Modest Mouse binge in St. Augustine and Jacksonville...

The most amazing shows I've ever been to. They're so incredible live...

Hi. While I like Modest Mouse alright, Ugly Cassanova is something very dark and different--and I love it SO much more. Sharpen Your Teeth will be one of my all time favorite albums. Agree?

Hi. I fucking love Ugly Casanova, as I do Issac Brock and everything that he has ever written, I could only wish to be his love slave. Oh, that's all I 'spose.
