Fun Music Information -> Mogwai

This is the most recent information about Mogwai that has been submitted to amIright. If we have more information about Mogwai, then we provide a link to the section where it appears (the actual page whenever possible).


Band Name Origins:

  • Mogwai, I believe, is from the movie, "Gremlins". A mogwai is a gremlin when it is still cute and furry, like Gizmo, before they turn into the evil, and infinitely cooler "gremlins". Submitted by: ezra agnew
  • "Mogwai" is the name of an instrumental song by Nick Drake. I've been unable to pinpoint which album it was on, because Drake released only 3 albums before his death in 1974. Numerous compilations and unreleased works have been issued since, but where the song falls in his discography is anyone's best guess. Submitted by: mangold
