Mogwai - The Sun Smells Too Loud

Only the one post today as I'm entertaining tonight, darlings, but this is the perfect hybrid of R-i-G and Bang Bang Club, the mighty Mogwai with a track from their last album which I'll certainly be playing on Saturday night.

Ever since main man Stuart managed to punt me a copy of their debut single, Tuner/Lower in Nice'n'Sleazys back in 1996 I've been a fan of their output, and they've been a great band to collect vinyl by over the years, especially for this sad cunt...

I posted them once before, with a perfect Sunday tune from the debut album, and this shows how much they've come on since then. Always good for a track title (a favourite recent one being "Stupid Prick Gets Chased By The Police And Loses His Slut Girlfriend" from last year's Batcat EP), this tune was recently played by a certain Mr Weatherall on a 6 Music show, on the dancey bit as well!

Give it a blast, especially if you're still one of the fuds who still just has them down as a loud/quiet/loud post-rock guitar band (© every lazy 'music' journalist ever).

You're getting this at 192kbps as it only came out recently and the CD/DVD pack's under a tenner on the link below.
