    hands down my favourite band next to NIN. i've seen them five or six times. a few years ago, i was dead center, as close to the stage as possible, right in front of barry's guitar amp...and i forgot ear plugs. needless to say, i literally couldn't hear much of anything for about 24 hours.

    they'll be here two weeks from tomorrow and i haven't gotten tickets yet, but i'm probably going to go.

    also, it's funny to me how much of the same music you and i enjoy.

    They are so fuckin loud it hurts! the second time i saw them it was a small "venue" that wasn't a venue at all! (it was like a weird tent-igloo-auditorium-kind of thing) and the sound was overwhelming, when they played "Like Herod" "Batcat" and "We're no Here" i thought the fuckin place was going to explode!

    also, it's funny to me how much of the same music you and i enjoy.
    We like quality music, that's why we have similar taste! :P

    Here's my 5 favorite Mogwai tracks, im specially hoping for "Stanley Kubrick" played tonight:

    1. Cody


    2. We're No Here


    3. Like herod


    4. I am Not batman


    5. Stanley Kubrick

    One of my favorite bands. Can't really pick a favorite album. I feel like each one has it's unique ups and downs. They have a great discography though and are amazing live. The newest EP was a pleasant departure. They have a new remix LP coming out soon.

    the e-mail they sent out a few days ago also contained this information:

    Les Revanates
    As you may know if you follow any of us on Twitter, we've been in the studio recently. These sessions have been due to our involvement in preparing the soundtrack for a French TV show due to be broadcast on Canal+ called "Les Revenants". The first episode of which will air in France on November 26th. Rock Action will be releasing a soundtrack album featuring music from the series in early 2013, while we're looking at doing a very limited France-only picture disc EP release in December to co-incide with the series. Expect to hear a lot more about this in the coming months.

    ^Nice! i really liked the score they did for the Zidane documentary, i always thought Mogwai is an awesome soundtrack band, play "Cody" with any horror movie and watch the magic!
    I agree with blackholesun that every Mogwai album has it's unique "ups and downs", Earth Division was very good a bit experimental and electronic but keeping the Mogwai sound, im looking forward for a new studio release.

    I'm excited to hear how the soundtrack turns out. They are indeed a great soundtrack band. I always forget they had a hand in The Fountain OST as well.

    They even used "We're no here" and "Auto-Rock" for the horrible "Miami Vice" movie, and it sounded good!
    I love all "The fountain" score, it one of the most beautiful works of Mogwai

    Oh man "Christmas Steps" is awesome! I like it a bit more than the early version (Xmas Steps)
    I think all the tracks in CODY are flawless and together they form one of the darkest, yet most beautiful records i've ever had the pleasure to listen to ...at times peaceful, at times aggresive as fuck!
    Like i said on an earlier post i think it's like a horror movie score, one of the most underrated albums from the 90's, wish they would perform it live entirely!

    I heard the leak of the new EP and it was pretty good.

    Also, I would recommend Crippled Black Phoenix as well. Actually didn't realize they had a new album come out last year. My personal favorite is their first A Love of Shared Disasters.

    Holy shit, it's both beautiful and haunting...

    It reminded me a lot to "2 rights make one wrong", Mogwai sure know how to make beautiful melodies...

    Lack of I Love You, I'm Going To Blow Up Your School saddens me (especially the day before valentines day. that song IS romance) but it really does seem to be only me who loves that song.

    It's just that little one bar time signature change with the piano riff at around 1:55. Makes the song for me.
