Mogwai - Rave Tapes box set retailers

12 January 14

You may have noticed that the box set version of Rave Tapes is no longer available via the Mogwai webstore. That allocation is now SOLD OUT I’m afraid. However we’re pleased to say that the band will have a limited number on sale at our upcoming shows, not many as due to their size and weight they’re a bit of a nightmare to transport around on tour but definitely some.

You can also pick the box up via your local record store so stop in and see them and ask if they can order it in for you. Alternatively following a quick Google search, here’s a completely non-exhaustive list of retailers who stock the box, which we’ve posted over at mogwai.co.uk here

Record Store Day 7"

22 April 13

A massive thanks to all the staff working in Record Store Day shops on Saturday and thanks also to those of you who queued to buy records and support your local stores.

It was pretty disappointing to see a handful of copies of the Mogwai / Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat 7” ending up on ebay but hopefully the majority of them went to people who wanted them. In case you missed out but still want to hear the tracks we’re streaming them via our soundcloud which you should be able to find here

Hope you all had a great day and remember that these stores stock great records every day, not just one Saturday in April so please keep supporting them.
