A Wrenched Vir­ile Lore

Rock Ac­tion Wow! A remix al­bum named us­ing an ana­gram of the orig­i­nal’s ti­tle. Who said words aren’t Mog­wai’s strong point? Given carte blanche by the Glaswe­gians, a stel­lar cast of di­verse con­trib­u­tors have put last year’s Hard­core Will Never Die, But You Will through the wringer. Per­haps pre­dictably, Tim Hecker and The Soft Moon drench Rano Pano and San Pe­dro in hazy drones, so the more ar­rest­ing re­sults oc­cur when the source ma­te­rial is de­con­structed, dis­torted and re­assem­bled as en­tirely dif­fer­ent crea­tures. Honourable men­tions go to Justin Broad­rick’s glo­ri­ously cin­e­matic Ge­orge Square Thatcher Death Party; Klad Hest, who re­designs Rano Pano as a giddy elec­tronic bleep-fest; and RM Hubbert, whose acous­tic treat­ment re­veals frag­ile bones of Mex­i­can Grand Prix . mog­wai.co.uk
