The ATP shows will mark Mogwai's 20th anniversary
Glasgow post-rock outfit Mogwai will mark their 20th anniversary later this year with a series of shows at London’s Roundhouse.
The ATP-promoted shows will run through June and July, seeing the band themselves playing two shows, as well as headline gigs from four others that have inspired the group over the years.
Mogwai will headline nights on June 24 and 25, supported by experimental punk band Prolapse at the first gig and electronic producer Forest Swords at the latter. Meanwhile, rap group Public Enemy (pictured right) will perform on June 27, Wu-Tang Clan’s GZA will headline on June 28, Canadian post-rockers Godspeed You Black Emperor will play on June 30 and The Jesus And Mary Chain will close the series on July 5.
Guitarist Stuart Braithwaite told Time Out of the Jesus And Mary Chain show: “They were one of the bands that made us want to play in a band. They are local heroes from East Kilbride, which is close to where we’re from. I am very excited to see them play ‘Psychocandy’ in full.”
Mogwai released a new EP, ‘Music Industry 3 Fitness Industry 1’, on December 1 through Rock Action. It followed on from last year’s ‘Rave Tapes’ LP.
The full ‘Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Mogwai: An ATP Season at the Roundhouse’ schedule is as follows:
Mogwai and Prolapse (June 24)
Mogwai and Forest Swords (25)
Public Enemy (27)
Godspeed You! Black Emperor (30)
