This is a Mogwai - adorable creature from the hit Gremlins movies back in the 80's. Who would think that this cute wittle thing would turn into a murderous fanged/clawed monster if you fed it after midnight?!?
This is Mogwai - the legendary Scottish post-rock band. If you ever have an urge to melt your ears at a concert, just buy a ticket.
What's the connection other than the name? Well, the band did name themselves after the aformentioned fuzzy pets of filmdom, but guitarist Stuart Braithwaite has said that "it has no significant meaning and we always intended on getting a better one, but like a lot of other things we never got round to it."
Funny thing though... although the band has reinvented themselves on each and every record since forming over 20 years ago, Mogwai the band sounds a lot like what Mogwai the creatures are like: pleasant at the beginning, a whole lot of chaos until you expose them to sunlight or they stop playing.
