RADIO SONGS

The Scots post-rockers issue a collection of their best radio sessions...

MOGWAI are releasing a selection of radio sessions next year.

‘Government Commissions (BBC Sessions 1996-2003)’ collects material from the post-rock Scots’ sessions for Radio 1’s John Peel and Evening Session shows. It is released on February 21.

The band’s mainman Stuart Braithwaite said: “The reason we’re putting out this collection is simple, the recordings here are worth hearing. Some are definitely better than the official recordings. Some are sketchy but to be honest so are we. Sketchy but nice. Nicely sketchy.”

The tracklisting is:

’Hunted by A Freak’ (recorded at Maida Vale 21st May 2003)
