I was listening to PJ Radio in my car about 45 minutes ago and tuned in to hear the second half of 'Travel Is Dangerous' by Mogwai. Anyone catch that? They're one of my favorite bands and I was just curious as to why they were on, not that there's anything wrong with it. I'm just used to hearing other bands played as part of the 'Impact Tracks' and figured that wouldn't be the reason. Anyone have any insight?

    They also play cover bands (Gaslight Anthem) and bands which members of the band have previously collaborated with (Star Anna). I don't know which category Mogwai falls in. Maybe the second one?

    I heard it too. Jeff "announced" them stating they were one of the great instrumental bands or something along those lines. I tuned in just as he was talking..I assumed it was an "impact track".

    Yes, it's one of Jeff's hand picked Impact Tracks. I love that he's got us playing Elbow as well, a band I had never heard until seeing at the Isle of Wight Festival. Fairly unknown in America, but 80,000 people there knew every word!

    Thanks for the info! Elbow's great. 'Asleep In the Back' is such a good record.

    I love Elbow. What song are you playing on PJ Radio? We used "One Day Like This" as one of the songs in our wedding ceremony.

    Their 2008 album, The Seldom Seen Kid won the mercury prize, it's a classic album everyone should own. You might especially like the album version they re-recorded with the BBC Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios. http://elbow.co.uk/home
    If you trust me at all, if you want to listen to me at all, which you certainly don’t have to… speaking from experience I can tell you that things change. You can believe me, you don’t have to. They probably won’t change unless you make them. The best way to change something that’s around you, something that you don’t like, is to change yourself. I don’t think you want other people changing you, I think the only person that can change you is yourself. So if you ain’t happy, if your reading magazines about generation x’ers and your thinking, “ yeah I’m one of them,” well fuck that. Don’t let anyone tell you, who you are. Noh no! No one can tell me who I am. I can tell you who I am but that would be a long story, I can tell you who I am but it wouldn’t fit in a rolling stone… it wouldn’t fit in a video, it’s my life, it’s your life. You’re the only one who knows who you are. I hope you know who you are. If you don’t know who you are, figure it out, ‘cause you are somebody. And I’m probably stating the obvious, but I just thought I’d do it anyway. So if you feel like you have a piece of duct tape on your mouth, if you feel like you can’t speak… take it off, speak up, speak your mind, shout it out, let em’ here ya, shout it out!

    Here my name, take a good look this could be the day. . .
