Friend Of The Night
30th Janurary '06
Since their formation in 1995, Mogwai have become one of the UK's most respected and vital bands. While many others have come and gone, Mogwai have operated under the mainstream radar, happy in their outsiders' status. Their unwavering self-belief and ever-evolving sound has accompanied their rise from humble beginnings in Glasgow to worldwide notoriety as one of the greatest guitar bands of our time.
In March 2006, Mogwai will release their 5th studio album "Mr Beast", the follow-up to 2003's "Happy Songs For Happy People". It was recorded in the band's new Castle of Doom studio in Glasgow between April and October 2005 with producer Tony Doogan. As the title suggests, this is a record of considerable size and weight - a monster creation that started out as a return to the heady, bone-crushing volume and intensity of earlier recordings, and then mutated into a many headed, many mooded beast. Here we find the ominous death-toll of opener "Auto Rock" followed by the head-crushing army of guitars that is "Glasgow Mega-Snake", alongside the contrasting neo-classical piano passages of single "Friend Of The Night" and the beautiful melancholy of "I Chose Horses" which features Tetsuya Fukagawa of Japanese hardcore band Envy on vocals and a keyboard contribution from composer/arranger Craig Armstrong.
Mogwai are: Stuart Braithwaite, Dominic Aitchison, Martin Bulloch, Barry Burns and John Cummings
