Crippled Black Phoenix play US shows

Crippled Black Phoenix have lined up a two-week tour of North America's eastern states, commencing in Chicago on 2nd April. Details on the confirmed dates can be found here:

It's currently unclear whether Dominic will be playing bass on part or all of this tour, as Mogwai's touring commitments may prevent this. Further details when we have them.

The ongoing saga of Crippled Black Phoenix's THE RESURRECTIONISTS and NIGHT RAIDER albums continues. Check the CBP MySpace blog for further info.

De Rosa remix

Now streaming at, Mogwai's remix of De Rosa's 'Nocturne For An Absentee'.

De Rosa's second album 'Prevention' is released by Chemikal Underground on 2nd March, accompanied by an ever-growing list of live dates - check the MySpace link above.

'Nocturne...' will be the first single from 'Prevention'. The Mogwai remix will probably be the b-side. The single will be out in late March/early April to coincide with the tour.

update: The remix was completed by Barry Burns, who also plays on a number of the tracks on the 'Prevention' album. Thanks Neil.

Dublin shows

From 'indiewindy' on the forum
Mogwai in Dublin just confirmed on radio show on Today FM. Three shows in March at the Academy on Middle Abbey Street. The weekend of 20-22, expect around €30 per ticket. Please note its a small enough venue about 500 capacity.

update: Official announcement. Tickets on sale Weds 4th Feb, 30 euros.

Any dates outside Dublin? Or another tour-that's-not-a-tour?

Irish tour

Stuart posted on the forum last night, suggesting the announcement of an Irish tour is imminent.

Unfortunately it seems unlikely that these will be part of a wider UK tour. The three year wait continues.
