Post rock legends Mogwai at the Liverpool Olympia
Photographs by Sean Taylor.

ON Thursday, 22 November 2018 we headed over to the Eventim Olympia, on West Derby Road, Liverpool, to see the Scottish post rock band, Mogwai, who formed in Glasgow during 1995, along with special guests The Twilight Sad.

Upon arrival the ominous lighting set the scene for the 1st of the 2 bands of the night, the Twilight Sad. Their music was brooding and moody, and the performance was energetic, although the singers disjointed flailing was jarring, at best. Their set was well received by the audience, many of whom appear to have came out specifically for them. Their set was generous, for a support set, at 45 minutes, and it certainly did feel like it dragged on as their songs all seemed to merge together, lacking any sincere identity.

Eventually Mogwai took to the stage with no pretence, despite this being their 1st time in Liverpool in the memory of many. Anticipation was high and despite their modest stage presence, Mogwai delivered the goods aurally. If you know their music, you know itís loud, itís quiet, itís fast and itís slow. Itís something that needs to be experienced rather than observed, and said experience was certainly a compelling 1.

The music merges seamlessly with the lighting and ambience to create an ethereal atmosphere to enjoy. Theyíre a band like no other Iíve seen, and with their rapturous reception, I expect to not have to wait so long before we see them in Liverpool again.
