themes to play with

Music "Not enough is written about the sensual pleasure of being bathed in noise. There's probably a good reason for this. Pretension is a constant danger. It's hard enough to articulate what rock music actually sounds and feels like when there are lyrics to analyse and themes to play with. When - as in the case of Mogwai, a largely instrumental Glaswegian five-piece - there are few words, just sinuous guitar lines erupting into ear-splitting volume, the risk of ending up in Pseud's Corner, waffling on about cathedrals of sound, is high." -- Kitty Empire (whose name I'm never tired of hearing)
