MOGWAI

This is the MOGWAI week on radio TANGRA MEGA ROCK!

The Scottish post rockers' latest album, As The Love Continues, hot the coveted No. 1 spot in the UK album charts. 

"We're unbelievably happy to be the Number One album," said MOGWAI guitarist Stuart Braithwaite.
 
As The Love Continues is MOGWAI's thirteenth album in their 23-year career. The band release their own albums through their Rock Action label, meaning today's feat is a huge shot in the arm for DIY bands as well as thoughtfully constructed rock music.
 
"It is 25 years this week since the release of our first single Tuner/Lower, the first release on our own label Rock Action Records. We didn’t start the band or the label to get into the charts. None of us ever envisaged either the band or the label being in a position where having a Number one record would be a possibility.
 
"We started the label with a loan of £400 from my now-brother in law. Martin’s folks generously helped us out by paying for the studio to record the songs. We were just kids that wanted to make an amazing noise and get our record played on John Peel. Amazingly John did play the record, and one thing led to another to get us to the point we’re at now. It’s been an incredible journey making music together over the last quarter century, taking us to places we never dreamed of and getting to play our music to more people than we ever imagined.
