|Mogwai Come On Die Young Limited Vinyl 4LP Box Set + Download Codes
· ‘Come On Die Young’ was - and remains - a hugely accomplished, elegant and important album, setting a benchmark for the fierce intelligence that would characterise Mogwai’s future body of work.
· The reissue of ‘Come On Die Young’ - fifteen years after it originally hit the shelves - recognises the vital role this album played in Chemikal Underground’s development as the label approaches its 20th anniversary in 2015.
· This deluxe edition of ‘Come On Die Young’ has been painstakingly put together by the band and label, unearthing more than an hour of bonus material.
· Previously unreleased takes from early Chem19 sessions of ‘Waltz For Aidan’, ‘Christmas Steps’, ‘Rollerball’ and ‘7-25’, which featured on ‘Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait’.
· Seven remixed and remastered album tracks from CAVA sessions pre-dating the final Tarbox recording sessions.
· Two previously unreleased tracks - ‘Satchel Panzer’ and ‘Spoon Test’.
· Rarities ‘Nick Drake’, ‘Hugh Dallas’ and the three track ‘Travels In Constants’ EP.
· The original, previously unreleased version of ‘Helps Both Ways’.
· The vinyl box set includes four 180gsm LPs featuring the original double LP plus two LPs of bonus material and a download code for all audio. Two Chem19 demos are exclusive to the box set: ‘Christmas Steps’ and ‘7-25’. The box set is limited to 1500 units for the UK and Eire.
· “A reissue that makes ’Come On Die Young’ sound as relevant today as it did a decade and a half ago.” - The 405 (8/10)
· “Sometimes 'CODY' is kind, sometimes it is cruel and at many times it is lovingly, leeringly abstract. Because this is Mogwai in full, frazzled, fantastic effect. Live fast. Play slow. Die Young.” - NME
