Modest Mouse was formed in 1993 in Issaquah, Washington by Green, guitarist Isaac Brock, and bassist Eric Judy. The guys took the name of “Stains on the Wall” by Virginia Woolf: “I want to think of something pleasant, and these thoughts must reflect my subconscious belief in myself, because such thoughts are very pleasant and often visit even the most modest [modest]discreet [mouse-coloured] people who sincerely believe that they are not at all inclined to admire themselves.
The debut album MM was released in 1994, the first full-length album in 1996.

The release reached number one on the Billboard 200. Mar collaborated with MM until 2009.
