Scottish band, Mogwai have teamed up with directors Vincent Moon and Nat le Scouarnec to produce their first live concert film called Burning. You might recognize Moon and le Scouarnec as the creative masterminds behind La Blogotheque’s Take-Away shows (which are frequently linked to on this blog.) The film is set for release in August 2010 to coincide with a live CD entitled Special Moves.
The film features incendiary footage of the band from their three Music Hall Of Williamsburg gigs in Brooklyn, NY last April.
In an interview with NME.com Mogwai frontman Stuart Braithwaite spoke highly of the supremely talented Vincent Moon.
"He's a really good guy and I think he really gets what we're all about. He's an eccentric guy, but he's really hard working and he's got an amazing outlook… It's not a traditional music film...there's a few abstract things of us walking around New York and a few little montages. There's no speaking in it at all, either."Have a look for yourself. Looks like more essential stuff for your music library. Then go here to download a free teaser mp3.
