About:

An American indie rock band. The band was formed in 1993 in Issaquah, Washington by guitarist Isaac Brock, drummer Jeremiah Green and bassist Eric Judy.

Brock came up with the name "Modest Mouse" when he read the Virginia Woolf novel The Mark On the Wall in which the author described the working middle class as "modest, mouse–coloured people."
