Mogwai “How to Be a Werewolf”

Now here’s something out of the ordinary and really cool…

Check out this video for an edited version of Mogwai’s outstanding track “How To Be A Werewolf” off their forthcoming LP Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will (out Feb. 15, 2011 on Sub Pop). The video is an excerpt from the upcoming documentary 30 Century Man directed by Antony Crook who is also responsible for the gorgeous cover art of Hardcore...The documentary centers on James Bowthorpe, the round-the-world champion cyclist who beat the previous record by an epic 20 days.

This past summer Bowthorpe found himself in the isolated Norwegian countryside in the middle of a “white” night with director Crook for the film. “We were so far north the sun never set. I wanted the film to somehow give a sense of what James had achieved and the idea of him being alone, somewhere wild and isolated,” says Crook. Carrying with him at the time of filming were Mogwai’s new demos. Listening to “How To Be A Werewolf” on repeat while driving around looking for shoot locations, Crook says, seemed to fit perfectly with the landscape. When Mogwai saw the footage, the group decided to edit the song, constructing a version exclusively for the film. “We found the perfect backdrop to tell this story of somebody who points his bike at the horizon and then doesn’t stop pedaling. It’s a film about never giving up,” says Crook.
