Jay Reatard performs on Welcome To Our TV Show; makes several north Londoners deaf…

Ever wondered what it would be like having Jay Reatard perform in your living room? Ask Jeremy Warmsley, although you might need to ask him several times before he hears you.

Mogwai – “Batcat” Video

Though Pitchfork, Stereogum and Wired all linked to the above clip — directed by Dominic Hailstone — yesterday, for some reason the MySpace video is no longer functioning. So here’s a YouTube clip instead of “Batcat” from the forthcoming Mogwai LP/CD ‘The Hawk Is Howling’, in stores and online on September 23.

The above video along with an animated version of the same song and a film about Mogwai directed by Vincent Moon & Teresa Eggers constitute the DVD portion of the CD/DVD edition of the new album.
