Mogwai @ Webster Hall — 6/14/2012
Mogwai

“There was an amazing quote from Andrew Eldritch from the Sisters of Mercy who said, “The best thing about never being cool is that you’re never that uncool.” No, I’d rather we go on with our music and people who like it, listen to it and the thought that people turn out because it’s in some way relevant or trendy, is kind of depressin.’ I’d rather people just, like, came and heard the music because they like it or because it kinda had some sort of emotional connection to them. I also think that when, say, like ten years ago or whenever it was, when lots of instrumental music was really trendy, people were sick of it! It got to the point where we’d bring our record and some people would be like “Oh, no. Not another one of these records!” It was like “Really?” But it’s gotten to the comical point now where like I’ll meet people in bands making completely different kinds of music and they’ll be like “I used to be in a band that sounded like you.” I’m like “Oh, god.” [laughs]” [Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai]
