Following this year's hugely successful UK #1 album As the Love Continues, entering the US Billboard Chart at #9, Mogwai went on to be nominated for this year's Mercury Music Prize. Now they reissue their '90s EPs on vinyl for the first time in over 20 years through Chemikal Underground.
Each EP was originally released in limited numbers between 1997 and 1999 and quickly sold out. Although packaged as the CD and download compilation album EP+6, this is the first time 4 Satin, No Education = No Future (Fuck the Curfew) and E.P. have been available on vinyl since the initial pressings.
"I'm incredibly proud of these EPs," says guitarist and singer Stuart Braithwaite. "I think they're interesting as we were experimenting with so many things back then. A lot of what we tried out on those records are things that went on to define us."
A long time in the pipeline, Mogwai: e.p. x 3 is both an illuminating document for fans who came to the group in more recent years and an essential purchase for collectors of the group's music on vinyl.
