Vocalists can be the main focus of any band. At the end of the day, it's the lead guy throwing out their lyrics that will betheface of the band, the onewhogets the credit and probably most of the women too. Mogwai decided that vocalists are a thing of the past. First thing to know about Mogwai is that they take the tried and tested "quiet loud quiet" formula, and make it look liketheyoriginated it. It wouldseemthat the sudden turning on of distortion, or the heavier drums are just a cheap way to improveasong, but with Mogwai, you almost want to takethe songthere yourself. Everything about them is based on their ability tobuildup a song from nothing but 2 or 3 notes, and by the end, make it feellike anorchestra and their families had joined in.Eachsong sets a story for the listener to piece together from what images the flowing riffs and beatsconjure up.They don'tspoil itwith a vocalist portraying their own ideas over the top, and that's what gives them the edge. « hide
