Hmm, it seems I neglected to write an intro.

Yes. It seems you did. If you can edit your article you can add one. :D

Good idea. Keep it under your hat though.

Is that a good example of a Jeff Buckley song? If so why do people like him so much?

Don’t ask me, you’re (one of) the one(s) that didn’t like it.

It seems both of them think that minutes spent introducing or repeating are minutes wasted, rather than an integral part of the track themselves.

No. Only if the repeating bits aren't very interesting.

All the things I've heard about Mogwai seem completely at odds with that track.

What was the secret song at the end?

I'll have to ask my brother he loves Jeff.

What have you heard?

That they are pioneering merchants of noise and feedback which is almost unlistenable but also brilliant.

Well, not exactly. I mainly see them as just straight instrumental rock.

That song is really good. It's got the happy upbeat tune and rhythm whilst keeping the kind of miserable feel to it. I'm not surprised Iain likes it. It's got similar sensibilities to a lot of stuff he likes in some ways.

That's what it sounded like to me.

I've only heard some Yo La Tengo, and it was all second-rate faintly Third-Velvet-Underground-Album mood pop.

From which album?

That song is really good. Shame about the other eight... ;)

Not really. Jeff Buckley was always much better when he rocked out, and on this track he gets a bit Elkie Brooks.

The best of Buckley is "Mojo Pin", "Eternal Life", "Hallelujah", "Dream Brother" and "Yard of blonde girls".

He wasn't a patch on his father, though. Tim Buckley was extraordinary.

Right. I've seen a video of him on TV and that was very different to the song on this album.

Hallelujah is rocking out?
