Legend has it that in 1998 a man named Edgar Graham , a.k.a. "Ugly Casanova", impressed himself upon the band Modest Mouse while backstage at a concert in Denver, Colorado. After some prodding, he shared his work with the band, and began performing it early before shows while some people were milling around. Whenever he completed these performances, he retreated quickly with a look of anger and shame. After a time, a few small recordings were created, after which Edgar vanished completely.
In truth, Edgar Graham may or may not have existed. There is no concrete evidence in either direction, and only one of the current band members knows the truth. The band lineup now consists of Isaac Brock (Modest Mouse), Tim Rutili (Califone , Red Red Meat ), Paul Jenkins (Black Heart Procession ), John Orth (Holopaw ), and Brian Deck . Many of the band members contribute to the lyrics of the songs, some of which were not even written prior to recording.
