    Mogwai playing every other year is fine. Can't believe I was one of the sheep watching Madonna. What can I say. I got "Coachella'd".

    I thank Madonna for making it easy for me to get a great spot for Mogwai's set.

    Rock Action is a great place to start.

    Indeed, I was right at the front.

    Mogwai in 06 still gives me goosebumps.
    Wow.

    If they came back, I'd have no gripes. Fuck redundant bookings when the recipe succeeds.

    Battles were sick at Vegoose. Wasn't Mogwai playing at the same time as Massive Attack at Coachella?

    there was a little overlap. I remember leaving mogwai a little bit before they finished to go see Massive Attack. I was a little early for MA though, so the actual overlap might have been negligible.

    New album by the fall...

    We have resumed rehearsing (meeting up and talking rubbish and occasionally playing music). We have the studio booked to finish recording (Castle Of Doom is currently homeless) and we are going to get the record mixed in Spring. If everything goes to plan the record (provisionally titled "The Hawk Is Howling") should be out early autumn. It will probably have a song on it called "The Precipice".

    This sounds pretty nice...

    "Mogwai Young Team - 10 Year Anniversary Reissue

    Although it may make most of us feel a bit long in the tooth to admit it, Mogwai's incendiary debut was released 10 years ago this year and to celebrate, we've been in discussions with the band about reissuing the album with remastered tweaks, bonus tracks, new sleevenotes and rejigged artwork. Stuart, John, Martin, Dominic and Barry are currently poring over live tracks and old sessions to augment the album's original 10 tracks and we'll be looking for a release at the very beginning of 2008."
    I can't wait to hear Fear Satan in remastered glory. Guh!

    More news on the remastered Young Team!

    mogwai young team - uber remastered version with bonus tracks!!

    it's been ten years - believe it or not - but the impressive power of mogwai's debut album has not been diminished with age. we've been talking to the band and felt that it was time to remaster the album, augment the liner notes and include some extra tracks (eight to be precise) to create an anniversary version of young team that would manage to improve on the original while offering you guys value for money. the release is pencilled in for april depending on how the mastering sessions go but keep your eyes peeled for full tracklistings in due course....
    Their new album will be finished next month, mixed in March, as well! Should be a busy year. How about a Coachella performance of Young Team in its entirety to celebrate the anniversary and re-issue?

    How about Mogwai comes to Coachella and plays the following songs in this order:

    Christmas Steps
    Hunted By A Freak
    Mogwai Fear Satan
    Glasgow Mega-Snake
    My Father, My King

    It isn't necessary. When they pulled the Hunted to Satan to Mega-Snake combo in SF in 06, the rockness lasted till the end of the year. Realistically, just those songs would be okay.

    I'd take those first three, but add in Superheroes of BMX and Tracy for good measure.

    All that matters is Mogwai Fear Satan. Don't argue. I guess we could add 2 Rights Make 1 Wrong though.

    Failure for leaving "Ratts of the Capital" off the list.

    This is my new favorite thread.

    Coachella 06 can't really be topped. I could see that show every day for a year and it would not get old. Still the best show I have ever seen.

    Good call. Best song on the CD. I would say Ratts of the Capital, but the second half kind of bores me a little. The first half though might be their finest hour... behind Mogwai Fear Satan.

    Ending with We're No Here, followed by 15 minutes of noise would be sick.
