Mogwai's Special Moves (And I Don't Mean Gizmo Hadokens)

What I am referring to is Mogwai's upcoming new album entitled Special Moves. As a huge (HUGE) Mogwai fan, this has quickly become one of the most anticipated albums of the year for me after they announced it on their Facebook page. For those of you who aren't familiar with Mogwai, they are one of the most dynamic, (mostly) instrumental bands around. They are a big influence for the music I try to write, and definitely have something for everyone in their music library. The new album will contain content from their Brooklyn shows over the past 2 years, and I am really hoping for some new material as well.

Their website currently has all kinds of pre-order bundles available for purchase. Head over over to to see what is available.

Below is a short teaser for their upcoming full length film Burning (also shot at their Brooklyn shows), and is available with the pre-order bundles of Special Moves.

On a side note, I must apologize that there were no Gizmo Hadokens. However, now that Ive thought of this, I am starting a quest, an internet journey if you will, to find something, anything, that involves Gizmo Hadokens (or any kind of special move)... because that would be amazing... If any of you kind souls happens to find something or have the time to put your Photoshop skills to use, by all means (please) send them our way. This is where meme dreams come true.
