MOGWAI top the Official Record Store Album chart with their 2014 release ‘Rave Tapes’

Releasing their first EP in 1996, 2014 sees the band reach 17 years in the business.

Mogwai will play a sold out show at the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow tonight as part of the bursting Celtic Connections line-up, their fan-base still in full effect.

Releasing ‘Rave Tapes’ on Rock Action, the band are followed by Warpaint’s 2014 self-titled release on Rough Trade and Bruce Springsteen’s High Hopes released on Columbia Records.

The sound they sold to the world back in 1997 with their debut album ‘Mogwai Young Team’ was their very own sound. ‘Rave Tapes’, an album that isn’t vastly different to their previous work, but is yet again another brilliant addition to the design of the their tapestry.
