    From Mark:

    It was a bit of a strange show as it was set in an old train depot(which is now a shopping mall/conference centre) just outside the city centre, very big and very, very corporate. There was a line of about 20 'lotto' cars at the entrance, table-tennis tent (with beer sponsor), Smirnoff bar, Cola bar and you had to leave a 1.25euro deposit for the plastic beer cup (not including beer). The rest of the bands were either pretty dire (Tom Smith) or totally out of place in such a shed (Agnes Obel) but that all fell away when Mogwai took to the stage. They are such a well oiled machine these days that even a one-off gig is note perfect (although playing Werewolf after Helicon didn't really work). The sound was awesome, the setlist pretty good, the gig too short and the venue too big.

    Happy Birthday to PIAS
