Lifelong music fan and avid gig-goer with bases in South East England and New York City. Spent formative years reared on punk, which taught me to never adopt a uniform (unless it looked really good with hand made badges and a stencil paint job on it).
Love garage rock, bubblegum pop and psych, basically anything with heart that makes me want to sway and groove. Follow me on Twitter @Carrie_Quartly if you eat/sleep/breathe music and don't mind being grossed out occasionally.
Mogwai have been reshaping post rock or whatever you want to call that space for years now. In truth they operate brilliantly in the shadows of post punk, soundscape, soundtrack and even Goth to create stunning spectral pieces that are captivating and thrilling. They are also eloquent and outspoken as John Robb found out when he spoke to band member Stuart Braithwaite.
