Sophia - Mar. 5 '99: The Bowery Ballroom, New York (USA)
Sophia performed with Mogwai on March 5. ('Come on Die Young' was just going to be release in a few days of the show.) The Bowery Ballroom was the venue and Robin performed with Adam & Steve from Swervedriver and Jeff on drums. It was a great, great show.
Anecdote regarding show with Mogwai: The last song of Mogwai's set was 'Helicon 1' (if memory serves) and they extended it for it seemed like hours. Just pure energy, noise and mayhem. All of a sudden, in the middle of the absolute blinding volume, Robin walks on stage and Stuart hands him his Telecaster and then Robin proceeds to just BLAST an already sonically abused audience with a wah-wah pedal and rocket launching feedback. Incredible. It was then that I thought I saw Robin fall in love with an electric guitar again...
