mogwais second E.P. collective.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Ep + 6 (Audio CD)
Whilst i already had the origional Ep's (which i suggest you snap up now, there going out of production.)I felt compelled to buy this. Why? because im a nut who wants to see the multimedia bits. this whole collection is really quite amazing, spanning 3 ep's showing different moods and different time periods for mogwai.
Super Heroes of BMX is still a huge accomplishment from this incredible band, (how many bands do you know that use a robocop action figure to such effect?) and Whilst everyone seems to bash Stereo Dee, i find it their most exhillerating piece, abandoning the whole concept of "song" and any rules. Its just a thrash fest, inspiring to say the least. Xmas steps, Rollerball and Small Children In the Background are to be played together, creating a multi emotional twenty odd minutes. Stanley kubric and onwards stay slow, showing the lack of need for their quiet/loud "trademark". They dont just jump on their peddles to reel them in.
Buy it, and 10 rapid whilst your at it (their first EP collective)
