New Mogwai?!?
« on: 18 Jan 2010, 20:09 »

Mogwai is currently auctioning off a keyboard they used on their 2006/7 tour to raise money for Haiti relief. The winner apparently gets a bunch of other stuff too including a "vinyl test pressing of the upcoming Mogwai album Special Moves." Am I totally out of the loop not knowing this existed or is this news to other people too?? Either way, all I can say is "fuckin' sweet!" Mogwai is such a consistently great band and The Hawk is Howling is a damn fine record so anything new from them is always a cause for celebration in my book.

Quote from: wikipedia
Recently on the band's website they announced the imminent release of their first live film (tentatively called Burning) and live album (called Special Moves). Both will contain content from their Brooklyn shows during their 2008/2009 American tour.[5]

I feel like all this will do is rub in the fact that I missed them last year.

The track list for the the cd/dvd version is:

- Cody
- You Don't Know Jesus
- I Know You Are But What Am I

So no My Father My King, but what really bothers me is that the CD won't have Helicon 1,
and there will be no Xmas Steps!!
