Avatar 11:15am Chris from DC:

I walked out on Mogwai in favor of preserving what was left of my hearing. Loudest thing I've ever heard.

Ah, I see we're back on track with the 2016's. Nice work, M.
Avatar 11:16am Cecile:

I saw them before the Pretty Things in '98 or '99. Pretty Things were louder, but not by much.

Having a look at the Badger thing now.
Avatar 11:19am davej:

@Chris from DC I couldn't have walked out if I'd wanted to as I was also blind from the strobes pointing out from the stage at the crowd. Very intense!
Avatar 11:19am βrian:

Sem, they need you in Flint.
Avatar 11:20am Sem Chumbo:

Wisconsin was dubbed the "Badger State" because of the lead miners who first settled there in the 1820s and 1830s. Without shelter in the winter, they had to "live like badgers" in tunnels burrowed into hillsides."
Well, dip me in honey and call me mellified. Thx!
  11:22am Dean:

Saw Mogwai at the Troubadour in Hollywood in late '99. Not loud at all. Maybe they toned it down because the venue is so small.
Avatar 11:24am just dc pat:

I use to pride myself on my groups playing really loud. But now I have respect for bands that can get a good sound at a controlled level. Did I just turn into an old guy?
  11:25am Dean:

Eh, dc pat? Speak up! Can't hear ya!
Avatar 11:26am Marcel M:

@Pat: I think you did!

Certain bands just seem strange when the volume is too low. Some bands it doesn't matter as much.
Avatar 11:26am Chris from DC:

I'm ok with loud when it fits. I don't get loud for its own sake.
Avatar 11:26am Marcel M:

There is something amazing about seeing a band play way too loud in a small club. But it does drown out the drums sometimes, which makes it kind of pointless.
  11:27am Dean:

J&MC was strange with volume too low. Axel Dorner, John Butcher, and Xavier Charles, not so much.
Avatar 11:27am Chris M.:

the last time i saw Mogwai they just set off several hundred air horns simultaneously through the PA while abrasive dust was blown into the audience's eyes. eight people fainted and an elderly man went into labor.
Avatar 11:27am Marcel M:

@Dean: J&MC during this tour? Where did you see them?
Avatar 11:28am Cecile:

I love John Butcher's solo works. That's the kind of thing you can play for someone who doesn't get free improv and they'll appreciate it.
Avatar 11:28am Chris from DC:

I'd have paid to see that.
  11:29am Dean:

You could hear the spittle forming on their lips the volume was so quiet. Dorner, Butcher, and Charles, I mean.

No, Marcel. A long time ago at Hollywood Palladium. Oddly low volume.
Avatar 11:29am Cecile:

Konono #1 was upset they couldn't get any volume. They were playing this largely folk venue, and the sound people wouldn't turn it up.
Avatar 11:29am just dc pat:

2004?? CHRIS!
Avatar 11:30am Marcel M:

@Dean: Ah! Ok. I saw them this time around at term 5 and it was pretty loud. I was way in the back and my ears were ringing after.
Avatar 11:30am Cecile:

High Rise are a great band who needs lots and lot of volume - it's like another instrument.
Avatar 11:30am Marcel M:

Have you seen them, Cecile? I envy you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30am Lewis:

@Cecile - Konono #1 is all about loud - if it isn't distorting it ain't right
  11:30am Polyus:

Mogwai have always been pretty loud in my experience, but at least it's not a shrill loud. That is the worst.
Avatar 11:31am Marcel M:

In order to play motorcycle guitar, one must dime his stack.
  11:31am Dean:

Would love to hear J&MC again live but loud. John Butcher could open up, but not the other way around.
Avatar 11:31am just dc pat:

Exactly @Cecile, there are times when it's necessary. "another instrument" = perfect description.
Avatar 11:32am just dc pat:

I went with d boon style shrill loud. Turned the bass almost all the way down and the treble all the way up, using a Telecaster..

Avatar 11:36am Chris M.:

when i saw Mogwai play at CBGBs they covered the floor with those large sponges you use to wash your car with. everyone thought it was for our comfort and people started lying down on them. then they dumped tons of paste onto the crowd along with boiling hot water and lit off M80s for forty minutes!
  11:36am bill:
