Mogwai: If the Stars Had a Sound + Conversation

Book Tickets
After this screening, director Antony Crook will be present, to discuss how the film captures the essence of the Scottish post-rock band.

Formed in 1995 by Stuart Braithwaite, Dominic Aitchison and Martin Bulloch, Mogwai was a key in shaping the sound of post-rock. Taking their name from the creature in Joe Dante’s //Gremlins// (‘it has no significant meaning and we always intended on getting a better one,’ Braithwaite has noted), the band established themselves with early single Summer, before releasing their debut album Mogwai Young Team in 1997. In the years since, the band has seen a variety of other members join and leave, and featured a variety of guest vocalists, while their sound has embraced increasingly complexity. They have also branched into soundtracks for narrative and documentary films. Antony Crook’s feature directorial debut captures the band as they record As the Love Continues during lockdown, while tracing their history through a rich trove of archive footage.
