Sub Pop will reissue Ugly Casanova’s Sharpen Your Teeth on October 30th.
It’s coming…Ugly Casanova’s Sharpen Your Teeth is coming back to vinyl courtesy of Sub Pop. Sharpen Your Teeth was the lone album from Ugly Casanova, a band that was created by Modest Mouse frontman, Isaac Brock. This album has LONG been out of print, and Sub Pop has deemed us vinyl nerds worthy of receiving a (much overdue) reissue. YEAHHHH!
Ugly Casanova is Isaac Brock, of Modest Mouse. Or, possibly, it is a mysterious savant named Edgar Graham, who imposed himself on Modest Mouse at the Denver show of the band’s 1998 tour, introduced himself as Ugly Casanova, and, through a haze of unnerving instability, shared some rough songs with the band. His songs, though delivered hesitantly… shamefully, even… displayed unmistakable talent. By the end of Modest Mouse’s tour, Casanova, with much reluctance, was persuaded to record some of these songs and hand them over to record labels for issue as singles or parts of compilations. Predictably, immediately after he had done so, he disappeared. -Sub Pop
The 2015 vinyl reissue will feature four bonus tracks originally released on long-deleted 7” singles and all preorders from Sub Pop Mega Mart will receive the album on limited Loser edition yellow & white colored vinyl while supplies last!
