Our website is still missing all of April's data. The site was moved to an upgraded system within the same hosting company on Monday morning without notification, and the database that was used is one from the end of March... doesn't really help matters.

Now there are problems restoring the database that was in use on April 25 when everything was still good. 60 minutes has turned into a few hours, which has now turned into 4 days, and I still have no definite answer as to when the problem is going to be solved. Apologies to all.

Server Upgrade

Please note that the site is being currently being moved to a new server and the database that they are using is an old one. Please be patient while we get our hosting company to restore the correct database. The message board will also be down until all data is current again.

Original Music By: Ugly Cassanova?

A new trailer has been posted for the 180 Degrees South Documentary and towards the end it states that it will feature original music by Ugly Cassanova?

Now before anyone gets too excited, take note of that extra "s," as in that's the spelling of Isaac's publishing name, as first noted on "The Fruit That Ate Itself" (Although also note that since 2004 it has been spelt Ugly Casanova on Modest Mouse releases), and not his side project Ugly Casanova.

Why Isaac appears to be going under his alias is anyone's guess at this point OR could this be a new incarnation of Ugly Casanova?

When this was first mentioned last year, the project was supposed to include Modest Mouse members Isaac, Eric, Tom and Joe and The Shins' James Mercer. So it would be interesting if this was the new Ugly Casanova, except that in this new trailer, James Mercer's name is listed separately.

Ugly Cassanova is also listed first and larger than the other names, which is also interesting as this was originaly thought to be James Mercer's project.

180 Degrees South has just started showing at film festivals and will be available on DVD on June 8, so hopefully more information will start becoming available on any soundtrack details.

Thanks to Buzman429 for the news tip.
