Mogwai in concert. With host Bob Boilen. With its own distinctive style of sprawling, sometimes hypnotic space rock, the Scottish quintet Mogwai helped establish the alternately loud/soft rock dynamic popular in the '90s, swinging dramatically from quiet, introspective strains to explosive, growling rock. Hear Mogwai recorded live from Washington, D.C.'s 9:30 Club originally webcast on NPR.org May 10, 2006.
