In a bit of Modest Mouse nostalgia and reverie last night, I stumbled upon an MP3 copy of the band’s 1993 demo-tape release, titled Tube-Fruit, All Smiles and Chocolate. It’s available to download here.
I’m listening to it now for the first time. Expect lo-fi noise, much along the lines of Sad Sappy Sucker, with even fewer (if any?) drums. But SSS is an album that took a while to grow on me and is now among my favorites of theirs, so I have high hopes for this one.
