Mogwai

Biography

It's a treacherous business, trying to explain Mogwai. Pretension and hyperbole lurk around every punctuation mark.

Confronted with a music that has all the emotional impact of the greatest rock, but few of its obvious signifiers, you're left struggling to make sense of the nebulous, but powerful feelings they provoke.
