In my opinion Mogwai is in a league of their own. For over a decade they have been making some of the most progressive, hard driving melodic music around. Formed in Glasgow, Scotland in 1996 by 3 longtime friends, they set out to make “serious guitar music.”
A large majority of their music is instrumental with an eclectic songwriting style varies from one extreme to another. The structure of their songs build up and breakdown in a way that captivates the mood of each listener. These lengthy guitar-based pieces feature dynamic contrast, melodic bass guitar lines, and heavy use of distortion and effects.
Mogwai will be appearing at St. Andrews Hall in Detroit on April 28th. For more information please visit www.livenation.com
