I downloaded the You Tube stream of this before Christmas and then got to like the remixes so much decided to buy it. Now usually I try and and buy from shops, because I like the personal touch. And there are shops that sort of know me, perhaps not always in a good way... Anyway after being stuffed around by a few I ended up just purchasing it online from Rockaction (Mogwai's own label). I hate buying anything online, but as a last resort, I do occasionally.
Anyway my favourite track is the opener - GEORGE SQUARE THATCHER DEATH PARTY, remixed by Justin K. Broderick (who he?). You can download that as a MP3 from Mogwai's official site I think.
For some reason whenever I say the title I keep saying A Wretched Viral Lore. I've no idea where the phrase comes from. Anyone? An antique text perhaps?
