Woah woah woah. Maybe I'm terrible at detecting sarcasm, but what exactly did Mogwai start? Pleasurable they are, but I can't really see anything they wrote that cannot be directly traced to Slint, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Radiohead* and even some horrible metal like in glasgow giant snake (unless this mix is the idea of the 'postpostpostdeath' they created. Which they still didn't, Porcupine Tree already were doing this kind of stuff earlier).
*as much as I hate admitting this, I'd rather listen to Manele
