In a few weeks, Modest Mouse’s debut album “This is a Long Drive for Someone With Nothing to Think About” (1996), will celebrate its 20th anniversary. The record is overshadowed by its follow ups, “The Lonesome Crowded West” (1997), which Pitchfork dedicated an entire documentary to, and their major label debut “The Moon & Antarctica” (2000).
