Mogwai and Rev Magnetic – 22nd August 2018 – Leith Theatre Edinburgh – Review and photos

Mogwai – 22nd August 2018 – Leith Theatre, Edinburgh

Mogwai play the first of two nights at Leith Theatre as part of the Edinburgh International Festival, both nights appear to be sold out or at least very near sold out. Tonight I decided to drive up from Newcastle for the gig and drive back straight after. They’ve only played Festival slots recently and this was the only proper chance to catch a full set. It was worth every effort. As they approach the end of the touring for their latest album; Every Country’s Sun (not including the extensive soundtrack work they’ve done).Β 

I was happy to see they’ve picked some gems for support acts, Kathryn Williams supports on the 23rd but tonight I get to see Rev Magnetic perform again. Stuart was in attendance at their Glasgow show with Superchunk. Tonight they are in a much more comfortable setting and you can really sense a band coming together nicely, their confidence is beaming as they stalk a much bigger stage tonight. They are a remarkable act, brimming with talent. I noted the last time I saw them that their music might require a few listens to fully appreciate and understand. Tonight I really enjoyed their set, as did the audience in attendance. A band to watch out for! We’ll have a separate photo gallery coming for their set soon

As Mogwai took to the stage, I got a first glance of just how full the venue was. A sea of fans to greet Scottish music Royalty, the venue appears is packed!Β They came out to a really dark and smoke filled stage, the atmosphere was quite tense with anticipation.

We were treated to a rather brilliant set, largely drawn from ECS but with a dose of old classics mixed in for good measure. I was hoping that we might get a preview of some of the KIN material but it wasn’t to be. That said, we did get a rather rare and utterly stunning performance of My Father My King, which I’ve only ever heard them play once before at Glasgow Barrowlands for their 20th-anniversary shows. Don’t Believe the Fife is also a highlight, such a strong song.

Setlist;

  • Heard About You Last Night
  • Crossing the Road Material
  • Party in the Dark
  • CodyΒ 
  • Kids Will Be SkeletonsΒ 
  • Don’t Believe the FifeΒ 
  • I’m Jim Morrison, I’m DeadΒ 
  • CoolverineΒ 
  • Old PoisonsΒ 
  • RemurderedΒ 
  • Like HerodΒ 
  • New Paths to Helicon, Pt. 1Β 
  • My Father, My King

I walked away ecstatic and slightly deaf for hearing My Father My King and kicking myself for not buying tickets for the following days show. However, it’s not too long to wait until the next outing, they recently announced a November UK tour with our favourites The Twilight Sad!Β

I popped up to Edinburgh for a gig at the lovely Usher Hall. ArrivingΒ at the station too early I decided to do a spot of street photography around Waverley to pass the time πŸ™‚

I only had my Canon 80d and a Sigma 105 macro lens with me but it still got great results!

Back on the road with my favourite noisy dudes. This time they hit Edinburgh at the legendary Bannermans venue for a support slot for Certain Death.

Another exclusive, now they have a full lineup! Following the amicable departure (both are heading off to do grown up things) of long serving and amazing rhythm section. A tall order for anyone to step into. Joey and Aidan along with mainman Aran complete now complete the all new WAKD, and I can assure you they still sound amazing. New material is well in progress and we were lucky to be treated to a new track tonight. Anyway less waffle, more pictures…
