and Then there were Eight (and a bit)

avid Hawk-watchers will have already heard the sun smells too loud and six other new songs performed live in concert. to add 'danphe & the brain' to that list, visit, click on 'listen to the rob da bank show' (not the 'rob da bank and friends' link - you'll see what i mean when you get there) and pick up the show at around 1:19. be quick though - it'll disappear on monday (4th august).

further Hawk action can be found at, where the pre-sale includes 30-second clips of every track on the album, as well as offering a $1 price reduction and a free poster.
for those with some catching up to do, there's also a bundle containing mogwai's four matador albums (including 'the hawk is howling') and the poster for $36.

and last but not least, we previously reported that initial copies of 'the hawk is howling' will include a bonus dvd.'s pre-order has the following snippet:
Limited deluxe CD+DVD in gatefold digipak includes video for "Batcat", directed by Dominic Hailstone (Aphex Twin), plus the Vincent Moon (The National) short film about Mogwai, "Before It Sounds".
and stuart added:
The dvd with our album was filmed in Italy last weekend by the very nice Vincent Moon.

this is the cheapest double cd/dvd i've found so far:

£9.99 inc postage. used the site many, many times and they've always been spot on, no problems.
