Directed by Vincent Moon & Nathanael Le Scouarnac of La Blogotheque’s Take-Away Shows
Seminal Scottish post-rock band Mogwai are thrilled to announce their first official live concert film release “Burning” with accompanying live album Special Moves. The film, directed by Vincent Moon and Nathanael Le Scouarnac of the world-renowned La Blogotheque’s Take-Away Shows, was shot at the band’s sold-out three-night residency at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg in April 2009.
These creative powerhouses in film and music have come together to produce something undeniably unique and mesmerizing, grabbing the audience from the first opening seconds and never letting go. The 45-minute film presents itself as a modern urban noir thriller, a black-and-white journey, starting 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. Moon and Le Scouarnec call their film an “experience of the senses… a lifetime of feelings in just one night.”
The release also includes Special Moves, an 11-track live album. For a band who comes to such epic, monumental life in the live arena, it might be surprising that this is the first official live concert compilation they’ve ever released…and we think you’ll be excited by the results! And fans can download for free the track “New Paths to Helicon Pt. 1” from the concert HERE, as well as pre-order the limited edition album/dvd bundle (with the added bonus of 3 pieces of vinyl, signed poster and patch!)
