thanks rec level.
mogwai's gig was enormous, a killer sound, the top (but i regret they didn't play mfmk........)
mogwai completelly stole the show. they (incredibly) surprised everyone (including me) with an awesome set. the sound and the lights made it a show to remember. i wasn't expecting to enjoy it that much (last couple of records kind of bored me/i've seen them several times) but they made it directly to my top 3 of the festival.
i happened to talk to barry a few months after the primavera gig. it was the gig of their lives, as he said in the interview i've done with him: "usually after a gig one person or two people from the band think that this wasn’t very good, whereas the others think that it was a really good gig. but in barcelona for the first time in a long time the five of us came off stage and everybody was really happy. all of us thought that this was the best gig we’ve ever played. it was a fantastic festival and the crowd was amazing as well. more of the same please, i’d love to do that again!" i was on that festival too and i do agree on that.
