Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite: Midnight Chats – Episode 105

What really happens when you finally get a number one album?

After 25 years and 10 albums, Mogwai scored a number 1 album earlier this year after a fierce chart battle with another unlikely name – Ghetts.

No one was more surprised than the band themselves, but what actually happens when you get a number 1? When do they take that photos with the gold trophy? Why now for Mogwai? How did this unlikely band begin in 1995 in Glasgow? Can hearing Slint for the first time really make you crash your car? Are people really still pissed off about that Blur t-shirt?

I asked these questions and more to Stuart Braithwaite on episode 105 of the podcast. Below or on your podcast app.
