Fully armed and operational

'Cause this music can put a human being in a trance like state and deprive it of the sneaking feeling of existing. 'Cause music is bigger than words and wider than pictures. If someone said that Mogwai are the stars I would not object. If the stars had a sound it would sound like this.

They played "Cody" (finally!). They played the best live "Mogwai Fear Satan" I've heard yet. They encored with a perfect "My Father My King."

Mogwai are my favourite guitar band.*

*(not the same thing as my favourite band that uses guitars, mind you)
