    from françois:

    it was the first mogwai show for me, and i found it very great, powerful, but not long enough!

    from christophe:

    the gig was amazing. they played 15 songs (1 hour and 25 minutes). the "kubrick " on the set list is written by someone from the crew, not by me! they probably deceided to play it just before the show.

    from jerome:

    the show was brilliant (the first one for me, too) although it was really too short (about 80 minutes...). the band didn't play any songs from "rock action", neither their classics "mogwai fear satan" and "my father my king".

    anyway, mogwai deserves their reputation on stage. new amazing songs ("glasgow mega-snake", "travel is dangerous") and old live favourites (for instance "summer" and "helicon 1" which sounds like rain on scottish countryside). a great evening, nice concert area, which seems to be sold-out.
