Special Moves / Burning Cd/dvd


An eleven track live record (the band’s first official!) and “Burning” a DVD of the same performance (with many twists and a slightly different tracklist). Burning was directed by Vincent Moon and Nathanaël Le Scouarnec (REM: Supernatural Superserious; Take-Away Shows). The three night residency they recordedat Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg in early 2009 presented itself as a modern urban noir thriller, a black-and-white journey which starts on the same electrifying New York streets Bernard Hermann scored for Martin Scorsese. Manholes hiss steam, taxi headlights flare in the camera lens and strangers wait in street corner shadows. Yet this is only half of the package. It also includes Special Moves, an eleven-track live album. For a band who come to such epic, monumental life in the livearena, it might be surprising to some that this is the first official live compilation they’ve ever released. In the words of Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite, “I don’t think we’re a very ‘Greatest Hits’ kind of band, but if we ever did release one, we’ve already decided to call it ‘The Shtest Psh’. I think that fact alonemeans we can never go through with it.” Which means, in other words, that Special Moves is probably the closest we’ll get to a ‘best of’ from them
