I don't wanna say Mogwai "melted my face" in 06...

So I'll just say they "liquefied my puss".

I had to miss Mogwai in 06 to catch Massive Attack. I was bummed. I hope they play again and without a conflict this time.

i kinda get where you might be coming from...

their albums are quite annoying. they usually consist of 4 utterly incredible choons, then the rest is like...good...but not utterly incredible. they sometimes sound like they aren't trying or something.

that said, mr. beast is brilliant start to finish.

saw them at the corn exchange in edinburgh a couple of months ago. you probably don't know this venue...lets just say it was too small. my ears are still ringing.

nothing other than open air can save you from severe ear damage.

I really hope they're there this year. I had tickets to see them in Chicago last fall and they canceled the show due to the drummer's health, so I'm jonesing for some live Mogwai.

I haven't read why they're on the confirmed part of scoop's list, but their tour in Australia on March 8th, so maybe...

And I agree

The only thing more overrated than them would be Don Cab methinks

But you know what band isn't overrated. Toe

they're in Taiwan tonight...

I don't know which member, but one of them got really ill or something and they canceled the end of their last tour.

I saw them at the Rialto Theatre in september or august and it was awesome

I was wondering why I missed them in '06 .......... but MA were great. Mogwai are criminally underappreciated.

nah - i think if they were massive they would loose their charm.

they're the perfect scottish band - nearly world class, but at the same time so far away...



the beta band, on the other hand...

dude. I've been to the corn exchange. compared to a stadium sure, the corn exchange is small. but compare that to any venue mogwai headlines in america, and the corn exchange is fucking huge.


I'll take EITS over them.

I'd be down for that.

And Mogwai is infinitesimally better than EITS. That is said as someone who enjoys EITS.

I love both Mogwai and Explosions in the Sky... but I'd take Explosions any day. They both have wonderful songs. Mogwai's albums seem to be lacking something though. Maybe it is too many songs on some of them? Not sure, but also as somebody else said, live it almost seems as if they don't care(only seen them once though). Explosions albums are all great throughout and their shows are so intense.
