I went to Mogwai on Saturday…

…and realized that, despite liking the band and owning more than half of their albums, I could hardly tell one song from another and really had no business trying to review the show.

But I did anyway. Here’s the write-up, which posted yesterday at Blurt. (It’s actually a pretty decent review of the Twilight Sad, about half of whose set was new material.)

“BatCat” from the Hawk Is Howling.

You certainly did a better job with it than I would have, mostly because their Toronto show reduce(s/d) me to incoherent glee. Not so much the Twilight Sad, although I loved them live as well and they ended with my two favourite songs of theirs. But I can still write about them, whereas my Mogwai review would be something like "WOW GUYS, AREN'T GUITARS AND EFFECTS PEDALS AWESOME?"

Okay, well, let's leave aside the fact that I *used* your story about the whole front three rows being bent over holding their ears, and just focus on the last part. To which, the only possible response is, "Yes, they are, god-dammit!"
