The post-rock demigods celebrate 20 years together with a two-night residency at the Roundhouse

Much-loved Scottish quintet Mogwai are often described as post-rockers because of their love of slow-building instrumental workouts, but are equally influenced by Erik Satie, Sunn O))) and Big Black’s boiling rage. These two shows mark the band’s twentieth anniversary, which should mean an epic trawl through a substantial, distortion-drenched back catalogue including tracks from 2014’s well-received album ‘Rave Tapes’. They’re also the first pair of events in ‘Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Mogwai: An ATP Season at the Roundhouse’: a very cool (and pretty much self-explanatory) series of gigs in London this summer.
