Biografie

Named after the furry
creature in the 1984 film Gremlins, Scottish post-rockers Mogwai acted as
surly, outsiders to the mid-1990s Brit-pop craze with their sprawling
soundscapes and experimental guitar noise. Formed in Glasgow in 1995 by
guitarist Dominic Aitchison, singer and guitarist Stuart Braithwaite, and
drummer Martin Bulloch, the trio added John Cummings, a third guitarist, before
making their live debut. They quickly established themselves as cult heroes
with 1997’s Mogwai Young Team and 1999’s Come On Die Young.
Favourites of Radio 1 DJ John Peel, the band recruited Gruff Rhys of Super
Furry Animals, Gary Lightbody of Snow Patrol and David Pajo of Slint to provide
vocals on third album, 2001’s Rock Action before creating the soundtrack
to Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait (2006), an art-house film of French
footballer Zinedine Zindane. The atmospheric instrumentals of 2007’s The
Hawk Is Howling
and the guttural chaos of 2010’s Hardcore Will Never
Die, But You Will
inspired the likes of Broken Social Scene, Metronomy and
Foals, and solidified Mogwai as a keystone of British experimental rock.
Nearly 20 years into their career, 2014’s Rave Tapes became their first
album to crack the top 10 in the UK, and 2017’s Every Country’s Sun
topped it by hitting number 6. Four years passed before the release of 2021’s As
the Love Continues
