From Pitchfork:

Modest Mouse to Re-Release Good News as DualDisc

Zach Vowell reports:
Bad news for people who hate to buy Modest Mouse albums twice: last year's benchmark for Sony-sized indie success, Good News for People Who Love Bad News, will get the enhanced/repackaging treatment on October 11. 'Course, if the album's only on your hard drive, you can soon purchase the definitive version with an easy conscience, as this release will add "Float On" B-side "I've Got It All (Most)" smack in the middle of the album's sequencing.

That direct attack on the already tattered integrity of the album format aside, the real reason to snap up this quickie reissue is the flipside of the DualDisc. It will ******* the entire album (again) in "enhanced LPCM stereo" and goodies such as the music videos for "Float On" and "Ocean Breathes Salty", a new short film called "Stiff Animal Fantasy" soundtracked by the song "World At Large", Isaac Brock interviewing himself on MTV's Advanced Warning, behind-the-scenes photo galleries, and other assorted graphic bits and animated pieces. What, no Modest Mouse temporary tattoo?

Since it seems like Epic pulled all remaining copies of the original The Moon and Antarctica when that album was reissued last year, you may want to snatch up the plain Jane edition of Good News while it's still around, for future eBay sales. That might not be so important as buying the album only once, which is what all the filesharers were planning for in the first place, right? Right. Or if you exclusively listen to mp3s to preview Modest Mouse's live performance, ignore all the foregoing, and instead check these couple of live shows:

10-06 Reno, NV - Reno Hilton Theater
10-08 Mountain View, CA - Download Festival *

* with the Killers, British Sea Power, the Arcade Fire, Doves, the Lovemakers, Mindless Self Indulgence, H.I.M., Ambulance Ltd.

I don't like reissues. At least I'll be able to watch the "Ocean Breathes Salty" video whenever I want though.

I've Got It All (Most) is pretty bad.

And I have the Ocean Breathes Salty video from buying the single.

So I won't be buying Good News again unless it comes with a free blow job.

i never got the moon and antarctica reissue. i'm glad i have the old one, one of my favorite covers ever. the new one blows.

i'll probably pick this up for the ocean breathes salty video and the new song, even if it is bad.

what a joke

as pitchfork says, the only people who are going to buy this will be those who've just had the mp3's on their computer

and even then they've probably forgotten the album exists
