mogwai @ paradiso, 15 mar 2011

mogwai

now this was a gig i really wasn't going to take photos at but then again, i was at the front with camera in hand, so why not? and it gave me something to do too whilst i wasn't being blown away by the performance (and the one time i was almost blown over by the wall of sound, was later on when i'd put the camera away).

i've only seen mogwai once before (at oya festival in oslo a few summers ago with dave and ingunn; dave mentions the gig in his report for artrocker in fact) and i seem to remember not being overly thrilled at watching them live (but it was raining at the time, so that might have dampened my memory a bit). although i'd heard lots of good reports of their recent gig in newcastle, so i was kinda looking forward to it.

in the end, i think i was a little bit underwhelmed - was it because i didn't seem to know any of the tunes they played? i dunno. was it cos i was on my own? although that never usually affects my enjoyment of a gig (and i did know someone else who was there, just that i didn't spot daniel during the gig). maybe i was too close to the stage to appreciate the accompanying visuals overhead? i did enjoy one film (whilst getting a creak in my neck) that featured a cyclist, and i liked the soundtrack to go with it. and i did also like two other tracks - both of which had quiet bits then loud bits (ha, not that i'm giving anyone much to go on there if i was trying to work out which ones they were!). anyway, that's enough babbling for now.
