About this item
Mogwai’s groundbreaking debut album ‘Mogwai Young Team’, originally released in October 1997 is to be reissued in February 2023, remastered and refreshed on coloured vinyl, CD and digital. Housed in a gatefold sleeve with original artwork, the sky-blue vinyl will come with a digital download code.
The original recording engineer for the album, Paul Savage, whose production credits include Franz Ferdinand and The Twilight Sad, has remastered the album for this special reissue.
Recorded in what was soon to become Chemikal Underground’s own Chem19 studios by label owner and The Delgados’ drummer Paul Savage (for the princely sum of £1.5000), the sessions were, by the band’s own admission, ‘turbulent, disorganised and hastily mixed’.
Barry says: The genesis of one of the greatest bands around for the past few decades is finally available again on vinyl! Some absolute classics have fared really well from a remaster, so while the original Young Team was indeed (and is still) a shining tour-de-force, this is without the version you need to hear. Stunning album, and a wonderful pressing finally available again.
