2LP, Special Edition, White Vinyl
Chemikal Underground (2023) UK, EU, US
24 years after its initial release, Mogwai's iconic second album, Come On Die Young, is reissued on colored vinyl. Presented in a gatefold sleeve with original artwork, the white vinyl will come with a digital download code.
Arriving in March 1999 with an album cover that referenced The Exorcist and a title scalped from a well-known Glasgow gang slogan, you'd have expected Mogwai's Come On Die Young to be an apocalypse-harbouring, pre-millennial assault on the senses. Instead, we were treated to a darkly elegiac - surprisingly restrained - response to the aural fireworks of their Young Team debut from two years earlier.
