Mogwai – Mr Beast by Simon Sharwood

Scottish post rockers Mogwai have a new album out called Mr Beast. I haven’t got it yet; last week’s record budget went on the new LIARS album and, besides, I still haven’t decided whether to get Secret Machines’ last long player.

Mogwai has set up a site called Follow the Beast that seems to pull together Google maps, Flickr, YouTube and a bunch of other stuff to provide an online document of their US tour. Fans can see where the band is, and post tagged images and videos from the various gigs.

I’ve only just had a quick look at it; one word that describes mogwai is imperious. Last time I saw them they didn’t speak, played one long, noisy set, and I was loaded to the gills. It was frightening, majestic.

Being older, wiser, I hope they’ll return.
