amazing concert in an amazing place. the sound was perfect and very clear. fantastic light games cut the fog, pure shiverings. it seemed really to breathe an ancient and a religious atmosphere. sorry i've no pictures but i wanted to "taste" it in too deep!
just back from a week in rome where we were lucky enough to see mogwai out at the ostia antica ruins. probably the coolest venue i've ever been to and it made for a great evening (despite the dense fog which developed 5 minutes before the band came on stage - jo spent the rest of the night drunkenly calling them 'fogwai'). anyhow here are a few of the pictures i took. the lack of pictures of martin is down to the fog making things kinda tricky but what can you do?
spectacular venue and the fog really set the scene amazingly. it just came from nowhere 5 minutes before mogwai hit the stage and it was a full moon as well. totally breathtaking sight. great set and the sound was excellent. more than makes up for having to miss the barrowlands gig next week due to a wedding (as well as the old firm game :0(
