Interstate 8 is the second EP by alternative rock band Modest Mouse, released on Up Records in 1996.[1] It contains the band's original demo, Live in Sunburst Montana, which was recorded in Isaac Brock's garage in Issaquah, Washington. "Interstate 8," "Broke," "All Night Diner," and "Sleepwalking" were later included on the Building Nothing Out of Something rarities compilation released in 1999.[2]

The studio recordings of "Tundra/Desert", "Novocain Stain", and "Beach Side Property" are available on the band's debut album This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About.[3]

Rarity[edit]

Heavily sought-after by collectors, this album was reissued on Isaac Brock's Glacial Pace record label in early 2015 on both CD and vinyl. This has actually caused an increase in the demand and price of the original, due to the lack of quality of the vinyl and the new cd.
