Mogwai Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records

One of the most important post-rock bands, Mogwai's career arc has been similar to that of a snowball. The band has slowly built up a huge following from inauspicious (but brilliant) beginnings with the Young Team debut and the Ten Rapid more »

It's not been too long since the successful Every Country's Sun LP but no resting on laurels for Mogwai as they release their first feature film soundtrack for the upcoming movie KIN (made by the same people who brought you Stranger Things). Though it will appeal to lovers of sci-fi soundtracks, we're promised that Mogw...view item »

Every Country's Sun

Like a mostly instrumental version of Runrig that you could bring home to meet your ma, Mogwai have been pleasantly creating soundscapes for so many years now that each album is like a freshly poured dram of whiskey to warm you as you return to Scotland after a long time away on bleak European roads. Opener 'Coolveri...view item »

Party In The Dark

Hurling melodic post-punk together with space-rock expansiveness, Party In The Dark is the second track to be lifted from Mogwai’s forthcoming album ‘Every Country’s Sun’. The 7” is backed with ‘Eternal Panther&rsq...view item »

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, Gustavo Santaolalla, Mogwai
Before The Flood (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

If you’re gonna make a film about climate change, and need the soundtrack to resonate just as much with the message, how about grabbing Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross of Nine Inch Nails, Mogwai, and film composer Gustavo Santaolalla. Stirring and captivatin...view item »

Rock Action

And on to the Mogwai LP we go. Had no idea what to expect and have Only heard it once so far but from the 1st hearing it sounds marvellous. Not as samey as I'd anticipated and the songs with vocals help to make it sound more interesting. Still quite bits, still noisey bits but it sounds like they've gr...view item »

Central Belters

I wanted our shoegaze/post-rock expert Ian to write you a few words on this but he’s taken another day off after yet another Ride concert. I’m not going to review this as such because everything on here has been out before but for this is an extremely useful package which will appeal to both the discernin...view item »

Come On Die Young

To many, CODY represents Mogwai's most successful long-playing attempt at a "classic". Others cite 'Rock Action' as their masterpiece. I am a bit of a cynical twat however and refuse to acknowledge that this long-running Glasgow bunch have ever quite reached those dizzying heights on record. Every album they've done has had me staring at my watc...view item »

Minor Victories
Orchestral Variations

That Minor Victories album from last year, then… from last Summer… you remember that don’t you? You liked it. Well, our Clint did and so did Ian (of course). It’s what the [..word we never use..] word ‘epic’ was meant for. Stadium-ready and filled to the rafters with big string sections and anthemic songs....view item »


And so continues the long Norman tradition of not watching the thing the soundtrack was for. ‘Atomic’ is yet another score by Mogwai, the same notorious Band Who Can’t Help Themselves who were baited into making music to follow Zinedine Zidane around with. This soundtrack goes after a different kind of documentary, one about th...view item »

Government Commissions (BBC Sessions 1996-2003)

Good to have Mogwai back.......with "Government Commissions" an LP of BBC Radio sessions. Starts off with the wonderful "Hunted by a Freak" and that's worth the admission price alone. You know what to expect.  Quality stuff....view item »

Rave Tapes

‘Rave Tapes’ is the eighth studio album from the Glasgow boys, pretty amazing really as personally I’ve watched them blossom from wee scamps back in the mid nineties to the stadium rock giants they are now (well almost!). From the opening track ‘Heard About You Last Night’ it’s truly evident that Mogwai have b...view item »

Les Revenants Soundtrack

Mogwai have been hard working boys recently, with the sounds of ‘Hardcore Will Never Die But You Will’ still ringing in our ears they’ve come back with this original soundtrack for French TV zombie fest ‘Les Revenants’!All the usual ‘Gwai trademarks are here but ...view item »

Hardcore Will Never Die. But You Will

Now described as veterans, Mogwai were the king pins of the once-sprawling post-rock scene and now one of the few survivors mainly thanks to their superb life affirming live shows and consistent recording history. To some ears they have been smooth sailing for a number of years now so what will a new album bring? The opener, the misleadingly tit...view item »

Happy Songs For Happy People

Post rock monsters Mogwai return with a new album. I think this is their best effort for quite awhile The first track is just amazing with guitars chiming like church bells. They always hit the obligatory 'noisy bit' where sometimes you wish they'd keep quiet and explore different textures but... oh we...view item »

Mr Beast

Blimey! Jocks Mogwai seem to be doing well for themselves, I seen them on telly the other week. I think they're a good example of how an independent artist can become successful and leap out of the underground without selling out and compromising their sound. The wait is over for the 'Mr Beast' album after the 'Friend of The Night' sing...view item »


Sooooo if you didn't know there's a film coming out about Zidane. If you're from another planet then you won't know he's an insanely talented French footballer who's feet are made of silk and magic. He's also rather famous for smacking that Italian dude in the world cup final with his big clever football filled monkhead. Golden TV moments eh....view item »

The Hawk Is Howling

The new Mogwai album is here complete with cover art that's either horrendous or brilliant depending on which of us in the office you happen to be asking.. Personally I just can't make my mind up. 'The Hawk is Howling' is a good record but one or two departures aside it's really just the same one they've been making since 2000. The standout for m...view item »

EP & 6

I've gotta say EP+6 is my favourite, and is the best yet I've heard from Mogwai. Every track on this is a gem. It's possible that maybe the old EP+2 flows better. However, if I had EP+2 I would certainly miss out on the awesomeness of "xmas steps" (which sounds more raw and life-like than the version on CODY) and the first three tracks (from the...view item »
