Mogwai Rave Tapes Rock Action Perhaps it’s inevitable, for a group who’ve carved such a long and unbroken furrow, but almost 19 years on from their foundation, Mogwai seem to be approaching a sort of national treasure status: they are where...

Mogwai - 'A Wrenched Virile Lore'

Mogwai - 'A Wrenched Virile Lore'

Mogwai’s second remix album is a good reason to dig up their first, 1998’s ‘Kicking A Dead Pig’, and have a think about where those 14 years have gone. The Scottish prog-rockers have released six albums in that time, so they’ve earned a...

Album Review: Mogwai - Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will (Rock Action)

Mogwai - Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will...

Other than creating mind-shredding, eardrum-perforating noise-rock, you can always count on Mogwai to come up with brilliant song titles, and ‘Hardcore…’ has some doozies. The Tory-baiting ‘George Square Thatcher Death Party’...

David Pajo / Stuart Braithwaite: Glasgow Nice'N'Sleazy

David Pajo / Stuart Braithwaite: Glasgow...

Usually members of a cult don't get to meet the object of their worship, but here a few people are about to see David Pajo - mainstay of post-rock icons Slint - in the flesh. Indeed, that other mainstay of this so-called Glasgow 'scene' has...

London Highbury Upstairs At The Garage

Few sane folk could ever quibble with The Verve 's famous dictum on splitting up, which held that all farewells should be sudden. But now Ligament have added the entirely reasonable proviso: "And preferably bloody loud, too." In a world...

Ah, Christmas. Rosy-cheeked children tearing into gift wrap, a warm fire crackling in the hearth, bare fens strafed mercilessly by a howling wind, genocide. Ah. Hello, Mogwai . How nice of you to disjoint us. Actually, this...
