ON December 16, Glasgow

post-rock veterans Mogwai play a homecoming gig at the city’s Hydro, and Rock Action Records and Regular Music are offering five National readers the opportunity to see the concert with a pal in tow.

Crowning a year that saw Mogwai earn their highest-charting record yet with Every Country’s Sun, which reached number six in the UK’s official albums chart, the Hydro date will be the final night of a 42-date tour with Sacred Paws, the afrobeat-inspired duo who won this year’s Scottish Album of the Year Award with their debut long-player Strike A Match. Also playing will be reformed shoegaze legends Ride, back this summer with Weather Diaries, their first album in 11 years.

Mogwai frontman Stuart Braithwaite told The National in September that the awe-inspiring Every Country’s Sun was recorded during the “really, really grim post-Brexit, pre-Trump period” at legendary producer Dave Fridmann’s Tarbox Road studios in upstate New York and that “amid all this real horror it felt to me personally that the record, this music, was what we were doing to not think about that other stuff.”

So if you fancy your luck at getting a break from reality, just send your name, email address, contact number and answer to the following question to: letters@thenational.scot no later than Saturday, December 2. Winning tickets are strictly non-transferable.

SAY Award winners Sacred Paws are on Mogwai’s record label; what’s it called?
