Scottish post-rock icons Mogwai present Burning, a new live film directed by Vincent Moon and Nataniel la Souanec.
The film features footage shot over three nights at live shows in Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg, on April 27-29, 2009. It also features a borderline unstable press blurb:
“Mogwai performs an incandescent show in front of a stunned crowd. As if time stood still, the audience is transported along by musical waves, both poetic and violent. Burning dives into this wild sensual flow. Directors Vincent Moon and Nathanaël Le Scouarnec guide us into a dream where there is no tomorrow. This is a black and white experience of the senses carved by the raw emotion of this pioneering band that doesn’t need any words to touch the heart of its listeners. Layered and innovative, the movie has its finger firmly on their pulse, a sonic adventure between hope and rebellion. A lifetime of feelings in just one night.”
Anyway, Burning features plenty of Mogwai tracks, including ‘The Precipice’, ‘Like Herod’, ‘New Paths to Helicon pt. 1’ and the classic ‘Mogwai Fear Satan’. And this June 3, ATP present the official Burning Party at the Scala. Doors open at 7.30, and the night will feature a screening of Burning, a live performance by Remember Remember, a band on Mogwai’s Rock Action record label, and DJ sets by Mogwai, Fuck Buttons and Errors.
