Jeremiah Green

Jeremiah Martin Green (born March 4, 1977) is the drummer and founding member of the indie rock band Modest Mouse from 1993 to March 2003, and again from July 2004.

He was born in Oahu, Hawaii while his father was in the Army. He grew up in Moxee, WA a few miles outside of Yakima, WA. His family moved to the Seattle area in 1989. He has an older brother named Adam and two stepsisters.

In the mid-1990s, Green also played with the bands Satisfact on K Records, Red Stars Theory on Touch and Go Records, and Peeved on Distressed Records. Green also plays with a band by the name of Vells, as well as another band named Psychic Emperor. Both bands play at venues around Seattle and the Pacific Northwest.

In May 2008, Jeremiah released a drum breaks 7" collaboration with Plastiq Phantom under the alias World Gang on the Imputor? label.

Style and Influence

Of his work on Sad Sappy Sucker, Spencer Owen at Pitchfork Media has said, "Jeremiah Green proves himself to be one of indie rock's best drummers, even this early on in the game."

In an interview with drummer Benjamin Weikel, he states that Jeremiah's drum parts have a "great, loose feeling that's hard to emulate".

He recently placed 37th in Stylus Magazine's list of '50 Greatest Rock Drummers', where Jonathan Bradley describes his drumming:

His rhythms can be as unkempt and intricate as the music they underpin (the rolling shuffle of "Grey Ice Water," or the stumbling clatter of "Truckers Atlas," for instance), but they are always strong enough to bolster the momentum of even the most meandering tracks. And when presented with a genuine groove, like the lean, funky "Tiny Cities Made of Ashes," he forces the band to march in lockstep behind him.
