Giveaway: Signed Copy Of Mogwai's Young Team Re-Issue
Scottish post-rock act Mogwai is reissuing its 1997 debut, Young Team.
The re-release, due May 26 from Chemikal Underground, will be available as a double-CD or limited-edition, quadruple vinyl box-set; new liner notes were penned by journalist/writer Keith Cameron.
And, now, our sister paper in St. Louis is giving away a signed copy of Young Team. To enter the contest, email Riverfront Times music editor Annie Zaleski with “Mogwai: I Want My Young Team” in the subject heading by Tuesday, May 20. A winner will be chosen at random.
Young Team’s expanded tracklisting includes:
… blistering live recordings of “Like Herod” at T In The Park; “Katrien” performed at Lounge Ax in Chicago and “Mogwai Fear Satan” from Chemikal Underground’s 5th Anniversary Party at The Garage in Glasgow. There are session tracks too: “R U Still In 2 It” (featuring vocals by Aidan Moffat) on the Mary Anne Hobbs show (Stuart Braithwaite’s on-air accusation that Mary Anne ‘fancied’ Aidan has been excised to protect the innocent) and “Summer” performed live on NYU’s student radio station WNYU. Other rarities include a version of “Honey” by Spacemen 3; “I Don’t Know What To Say” (from an NME covermount CD); “I Can’t Remember” (from an extremely rare ‘Glasgow’ 7” by Plastic Cowboy) and the previously unreleased opener on Disc 2, “Young Face Gone Wrong.”
So, have at it, folks. --Pete Freedman
