This Friday’s FACT mix is the work of Scottish post-rock legends Mogwai.

Formed in Falkirk in 1995, Mogwai this week released their first live package, taking in a concert recording, Special Moves and a DVD companion, Burning. It marks fourteen years of existence for the band, whose early albums Young Team and Come On Die Young represent some of the most influential music of the era – taking the long-form instrumentals of Louisville’s Slint, and injecting them with a very human, and very British melancholy and sense of humour, looking to their peers Arab Strap as well as the likes of The Cure and Fugazi for inspiration. Later in the decade, Mogwai would work with Andrew Weatherall, Alec Empire, The Manic Street Preachers and more.

The noughties would see Mogwai continue to hone their sound, reaching new peaks with tracks like ‘Glasgow Mega Snake’ and ‘Auto Rock’, while also moving into soundtracking, working with Clint Mansell on Darren Aronofsky’s The Fountain and most notably, providing the score for Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait, the film study of French football legend Zinedine Zidane.

Mogwai’s FACT mix was made by long-term member Barry Burns, and features The Fall, Fad Gadget, Tuxedomoon and more – you can read an interview with him about the mix and recent Mogwai goings on over the page. Special Moves / Burning is out now.

New Clip Featuring “Mogwai Fear Satan” at Spin Magazine


“Mogwai’s first live package– a concert recording and DVD companion, Burning, with a different tracklist– finds them in typically outstanding form”
- Pitchfork, 8.2

“It’s a tour de force of a band at the peak of their formidable powers…”
- Under the Radar Magazine

“…the film is a visceral, erratic, Norman Mclaren-esque experience in black and white.”
Nylon Guys
 
“…one hell of a concert film.”
SF Weekly

 “…the black-and-white footage does the talking without standard theatrics…there’s atmospheric beauty in the close-ups of hands shredding at guitar strings onstage and applauding in the crowd.”
- Spin Magazine

“Like most of Mogwai’s music—free of the standard verse-chorus-verse song structure—Burningis devoid of a sense of time. And with its unique focus, the film invites us to bask in the bands music from a ground-level, audience POV.”

Mogwai “Special Moves” & “Burning” CD/DVD Out August 24th!

Mogwai to Release the Concert Film “Burning”

with Live Album Special Moves
Out on August 24th

Directed by Vincent Moon & Nathanael Le Scouarnac
of La Blogotheque’s Take-Away Shows

View Trailer HERE
Seminal Scottish post-rock band Mogwai are thrilled to announce their first official live concert film release “Burning” with accompanying live album Special Moves. The film, directed by Vincent Moon and Nathanael Le Scouarnac of the world-renowned La Blogotheque’s Take-Away Shows, was shot at the band’s sold-out three-night residency at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg in April 2009.

These creative powerhouses in film and music have come together to produce something undeniably unique and mesmerizing, grabbing the audience from the first opening seconds and never letting go. The 45-minute film presents itself as a modern urban noir thriller, a black-and-white journey, starting on the same electrifying New York streets Bernard Hermann scored for Martin Scorsese. Manholes hiss steam, taxi headlights flare in the camera lens and strangers wait in street corner shadows. Moon and Le Scouarnec call their film an “experience of the senses… a lifetime of feelings in just one night.”

The release also includes Special Moves, an 11-track live album. For a band who comes to such epic, monumental life in the live arena, it might be surprising that this is the first official live concert compilation they’ve ever released…and we think you’ll be excited by the results! And fans can download for free the track “New Paths to Helicon Pt. 1” from the concert HERE, as well as pre-order the limited edition album/dvd bundle (with the added bonus of 3 pieces of vinyl, signed poster and patch!) HERE.

Tracklists:

Special Moves
1. I’m Jim Morrison, I’m Dead 2. Friend of the Night 3. Hunted By a Freak 4. Mogwai Fear Satan 5. Cody 6. You Don’t Know Jesus 7. I Know You Are But What Am I 8. I Love You, I’m Going to Blow Up Your School 9. 2 Rights Make 1 Wrong 10. Like Herod 11. Glasgow Megasnake

“Burning”
1. The Precipice 2. I’m Jim Morrison, I’m Dead 3. Hunted By a Freak 4. Like Herod 5. New Paths to Helicon Pt. 1 6. Mogwai Fear Satan 7. Scotland’s Shame 8. Batcat

Mogwai “Burning” Teaser #2 – “Batcat”

Posted in News, Promotions with tags , , , , , on April 30, 2010 by E.N.

    Mogwai has joined forces with Vincent Moon and Nathanael le Scouarnec, the masterminds behind La Blogotheque’s Take-Away Shows, to release a mesmerizing project late August 2010. This creative collaboration is a CD/DVD release of the concert film Burning, and live album Special Moves. With Mogwai and La Blogotheque in the mix, you know that this will not be a typical concert DVD, as the soundscape and cinematic direction rival that of any art-house film.
