Mogwai Prepare Remix Album

Based on 'Hardcore Will Never Die...'

Mogwai have confirmed plans for a new remix album, the superbly titled ‘A Wretched Virile Lore’.

Mogwai must be a tricky beast to remix. The post-rock giants tend to build imposing song structures, focussing on gradually shifting textures and often quite intense, thrilling, cathartic climaxes.

So it doesn’t happen very often. Now – as The Quietus rightly point out – Mogwai have decided to hand material from their recent studio album to an extremely varied cast of producer.

‘Hardcore Will Never Die But You Will’ was released last year, with the Scottish band now deciding to slice their material into pieces. Taking part in the project are guest producers such as Tim Hecker, The Soft Moon, RM Hubbert, Robert Hampson, Zombi, Justin Broadrick, Xander Harris, Umberto and Cylob.

Fancy a quick preview? Ah g’wan… You can find Xander Harris ‘ take on ‘How To Be A Werewolf’ in the widget below.
