Mogwai

Dont ask me how.. But I came across couple of Mogwai tracks...

And I love it. Really Good !!

From the sound of it , the music is British although its instrumental - so I didnt get it from accent.

Its bit like Pink Floyd which is great..A touch of Porcupine Tree also.. Space rock, modern rock, symphonic rock, pop - dont know which genre it belongs to ?

Wow I love this one.. Its inducing me to sleep.

Mogwai is the next big thing ...May be.. I dunno..

Anyone has any opinion on Mogwai ?

What a find... Find of 2005 so far although this might be released in 1990s when I thought English ( as in Language) music is all about Michael Jackson

Oh yeah, Mogwai is good stuff. I had the chance to see/hear them live at the Curiosa Festival this summer. They were really impressive live. All the crescendos and instrumental dynamics were amazing to see done in a live outdoor setting.

I just picked up their 'Ten Rapid' album recently, but I havent had the chance to listen to it as much as I'd like. I've heard from tons of different people and places that 'Come On, Die Young' is the fan favorite and album to get. It's on my list.

Since I posted this almost 5 months ago, I've purchased 'Come On Die Young', 'Happy Songs For Happy People', and 'Government Sessions'. I flat out love all of those CDs. Mogwai has possibly become my favorite "post-rock" group.

I really recommend 'Goverment Sessions'. It's a 'best of' for all intents and purposes, but it was performed 'live at the BBC', so you get to experience the dynamics and great tone they have live. Awesome stuff 'Come On Die Young' and 'Young Team' seem to be fan favorites for their albums too, so look for those. Their most recent, 'Happy Songs For Happy People', added lush production and electronics to their sound, which was a cool move.

I need to finish off my collection (of their albums at least) with 'Rock Action' and 'Young Team'. I've been searching for 'Young Team' for a few months now, cant seem to find it anywhere. The hunt continues....

I'm fired up for the new album, The Hawk Is Howling. Best song titles evar? You be the judge:

Stupid Prick Gets Chased by the Police and Loses His Slut Girlfriend
I'm Jim Morrison, I'm Dead
The Sun Smells Too Loud
I Love You, I'm Going to Blow Up Your School
Thank You Space Expert

Anyways, here you go, Got Edge.

I'm seeing them in Minneapolis with a friend of mine. I can't wait, I've never seen Mogwai before, but the guy I'm going with has, so it will be fantastic.
