Mogwai. A band so Post Rock that they practically go full-circle and inadvertently become Hardcore by default.
Hard to pick their best track. They do a fantastic cover of Sweet Leaf by Black Sabbath. Also Sine Wave is a very strong piece of music.
I’m going with this. I can recall John Peel playing Christmas Steps back in 1998. The track from the No Education = No Future (Fuck The Curfew) E.P. sums the band up totally.
Christmas Steps does all of that quiet / noisy thing so well. The bass at 3:20 eventually sets a pulsing tone. The drums are unique too and come to the fore in a way they seldom do in songs by any artist.
Hush, you may hear the brilliance…
