Scottish five piece Mogwai formed in 1995 and debuted a year later with the single "Tuner/Lower", released on their own Rock Action label. They've since gone on to develop their distinctive style of apocalyptic, yet deeply humanised noise across four albums, establishing the transcendentally effective quiet–loud/quiet–loud dynamic as their very own and spawning a generation of imitators. Usually tagged a post–rock band because of their slow–build, instrumental workouts and the neo–classical majesty of their more ambitious songs, Mogwai are rather a bunch of a–rockers, drawn to whatever serves their cause – be it the stripped–down delicacy of Erik Satie or the boiling rage of Big Black. Mix light and dark together, Mogwai understand, and you make magic.
