Mogwai announces new live CD/DVD

on January 24, 2010, 11:00am

Mogwai just so happens to be a great live act. The band’s music is a great ebbing tide that pulls you in deep before easing up and letting you back on the shore. Once you think your toes can hit the floor, the tide pulls you back in, nearly drowning you; in a good way. And no, I haven’t been in the ocean in awhile, and no I have not had any near-death experiences in the ocean. Instead, what I’m talking about is Mogwai’s upcoming live project, a forthcoming concert film titled Burning, set to be released this Spring.

The footage was shot by La Blogotheque’s Vincent Moon and Nathanaël Le Scouarnec and will definitely be a gorgeous viewing experience. The loud epic odyssey of Mogwai’s live show will begin with “The Precipice” and features such standouts as “Hunted Like a Freak”, “Like Herod”, “You Don’t Know Jesus”, “Mogwai Fear Satan” and closes with “Glasgow Megasnake”. In addition to that the other exciting news is the live CD, Special Moves that is included.

Special Moves is Mogwai’s first live album (didn’t someone else announce that recently?) features the same tracks as the DVD. If you want to get fancy, you can order the limited edition triple vinyl box set. The set will include all of the tracks on the CD plus other songs like “Yes! I’m a Long Way From Home”, “Scotland’s Shame”, and “Batcat” among others. Fear not though CD fans, the extra vinyl tracks will be available as a download.

“Batcat” is streaming on Myspace and you can grab an mp3 of “2 Rights Make 1 Wrong” over at MogwaiSpecialMoves.com for the cost of an email. Find a teaser trailer below.
