An audience-satiating re-run of Discovery's most popular songs would've resulted in a "half arsed bland album", I think? That they've stuck their necks out & released a record that is going to lose them a lot of fans & polarise the rest is actually a rather admirable move, I reckon?
An inspiration, always. Long may he prosper.
earlier this week - really enjoyed their set, hushed & intimate, like stumbling into a band rehearsal, almost.
Scurry off back to your indie comfort zone, Mr. Gourlay.
p.s. I'm very fond of this new album though.
he comes over all "born again Christian" on his next LP (shudder).
James, we're over it. Move along sir, nothing to see here...
p.s. Am I a day late, or were you a day early? :)
"Something different from the traditional Mogwai blueprint" - they've been trailering each new release with this (or similar) bollocks for the last decade (at least). It never happens. And you idiots keep buying their increasingly pointless records. BOOORRRRRIINNGGG.
Seriously, it's their best LP since A Bell Is A Cup in, wow, 1988... Am really looking forward to seeing them in February...
