About this item
24 years after its initial release, Mogwai’s iconic second album ‘Come On Die Young’ is to be reissued on coloured vinyl. Presented in a gatefold sleeve with original artwork, the white vinyl will come with a digital download code.
Originally released in March 1999, ‘Come On Die Young’s artwork references The Exorcist and a title scalped from a well-known Glasgow gang slogan. Instead of the cover’s suggested apocalypse-harbouring, pre-millennial assault on the senses however, this second offering from the band was a darkly elegiac – and surprisingly restrained – response to the aural fireworks of their ‘Young Team’ debut from two years earlier.
Barry says: CODY was quite a sidestep from the incendiary heft of Mogwai's debut, but showcases the side of the band that (for me) is their best iteration. Quiet, contemplative melody and shadowy vocals below oft-beautiful and also oft-crushing post-rock instrumentation. Absolutely classic 'Gwai.
