Named after the infamous furry creatures in the hit movie 'Gremlins', Mogwai was formed in Glasgow, Scotland, during 1995. They initially performed as a three-piece before enlisting John Cummings on guitar. The band typically write lengthy, guitar-based, instrumental compositions that rely heavily on distortion and the clever use of FX. Most people are not used to having no lyrics to focus on. Lyrics are a real comfort to some people. I guess they like to sing along and when they can't do that with us they can get a bit upset. John's distinct playing style is delineated by vivid sonic textures and experimental tuning.
