20th anniversary compilation

Thanks to Alejandro for pointing out that, at the end of this interview with The Argus, Stuart mentions plans to mark Mogwai's 20th anniversary in 2015.

After nearly 20 years Mogwai are beginning to look back. Next year should see an anniversary compilation with “harder to find things” and vinyl reissues of every Mogwai record.

Referring to the compilation’s track list, he jokes “It’s an ongoing discussion, but it’s probably the easiest record we’ll ever make.”
