McGee loves the Hawk, slates MBV

from alan mcgee's myspace blog:

MY BLOODY VALENTINE NOSTALGIC CABARET TOUR 2008

THE NEW MOGWAI ALBUM THE HAWK IS HOWLING VERSUS THE ''NOSTALGIC CABARET'' OF MBV LIVE IN 2008

Finally got time to listen to it and it's even better than the last two Mogwai albums which to me have both been wonderful.I'm Jim Morrison,I'm Dead/Danphe and the brain/Local Authority/Kings Meadow/Thank you space expert are all beautiful Mogwai music.Their is a beautiful irony that the ''nostalgic cabaret'' that is my bloody valentine are throwing at people in 2008 gets critical acclaim in the easily pleased UK press with MBV still playing the exact same set they did 20 years ago and the only trick Kevin Shields has anymore in 2008 is actual volume and double extra pa to numb you and zero new songs.

Hear the new Mogwai record it's beautiful. Mogwai are 2008. My bloody valentine were a joke signing in 1991. Maybe they got better..
interesting to note that nme's report makes no mention of mogwai at all.

presumably he's not managing mogwai anymore, if he's only just heard the album?
