Mogwai – Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will – PIAS

I can’t remember when it was – in 1996 or 1997? I went with some friends from Cambridge to London to watch a bunch of bands (I believe three) in a small but fine club called ‘Upstairs at The Garage’. The two first bands were really good and I wondered how the final band ‘Mogwai’ will top that. But they did. And since then all of Mogwai’s albums have a special place in my CD rack, respectively my MP3 storage drive.

I honestly can’t remember when it was. I found some good Mogwai gig statistics for 1996 and 1997 but it didn’t help remembering. Anyway, on 6th of March 2011 I will get the second chance to watch Mogwai live – after 14 years – in Frankfurt, Germany at the Mousonturm. And yes I am little bit exited already.

About the album: Excellent as usual and never boring, Mogwai is constantly good. I recommend the Deluxe 2CD including the 23 minutes track ‘Music For A Forgotten Future (The Singing Mountain)’. Listen to the album on YouTube:
