Some people just have to have lyrics in their music. Those people are suckers. Mogwai is for non-suckers, and for post-rock newbies "Yes! I Am a Long Way From Home" is fantastic way to start. And in general it's just a great jam.
Take a look at the Gremlins video that was killed off before it ever saw the light of day. And this scene might explain why. Watch as a pack of Mogwai hold their annual meeting within the Himalayan Mountains. Just, oof.
