Modest Mouse Frontman Isaac Brock Calls Portland ‘Crappy’
Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock makes his home in Portland, Ore., but it seems like he's not too excited about it: In an interview with Polish website Onet, he went on a tirade against the city, which he said is full of "human turds."
"I didn’t mean to live in Portland," he said. "It was kind of an accident — I mean, the equivalent of my car breaking down there and me being like, well… I guess this is what I’m doing. I just can’t find a better alternate."
He isn't all that happy with the vagrants and violence, either. "Portland is weird, but it’s kind of a crappy weird. It is the most vagrant-ridden [city] — it’s really f----n’ up my liberal mind. I’m just like, what a collection of human turds," said Brock. "Two people died. This is within 300 feet of my house. It’s just a constant s--tshow of fights. And that’s just Portland keeping itself weird."
And he isn't into that slogan about keeping weird. "It’s a cool city. But a lot of the keeping itself weird is actually just allowing people to be complete pieces of shit. And that’s exhausting."
