Stuart video mixtape

We tracked down Stuart Braithwaite in the middle of his North America tour to give us his top fifteen songs of the now. The latest Mogwai album ‘Hawk is Howling’ cements their status as a classic band (though they would laugh in your face if you said that, thus the genius of Mogwai, punk rock influenced by Stockhausen). But it is true. Mogwai is rock’n'roll magic. The favoured adjective when describing Mogwai is “cinematic”. Each track projects imaginary films into your head. And Hawk is Howling red beams some heavy Philip K Dick home movies into your head. Ace.
