  • Mogwai –Scottish post-rock band. Scottish band Mogwai was founded by Stuart Leslie Braithwaite and Dominic Aitchison in Glasgow in 1995. When choosing the name for the group, the musicians found a Chinese word 魔鬼, which means “demon”. The group’s sound suited the name well. In March 1996, the band released its first single "Tuner"/"Lower", which didn’t bring it much success. However, the second song "Summer" became NME magazine’s single of the week. In 1997, Mogwai released an EP, 4 Satin, which reached the 110th spot on UK Albums Chart. Then they presented a compilation album, Ten Rapid. In October, the band presented its first official LP, Mogwai Young Team, which made it to the 75th position on the UK Albums Chart. In 1998, the group recorded two EPs Mogwai Fear Satan Remixes and No Education = No Future (Fuck the Curfew).

    The second LP, Come On Die Young, appeared in March 1999. Even though the album earned a few negative reviews from the critics, it managed to make it to the 29th position on the UK Albums Chart, which was a great result for the band. Two years later, Mogwai presented another album, Rock Action. The sound changed since the members added the keyboard and violin. The LP did better than its predecessor, reaching the 23rd position on the UK Albums Chart. It was also popular in France, where it settled on the 82nd position in the national chart. In 2009, the album earned a gold status in Europe. In 2003, the band presented a new album, Happy Songs for Happy People. The sound was more on the electronic side. The album showed worse charting results than the previous three. However, for the first time, Mogwai’s LP entered Billboard 200 and Billboard Independent Albums Chart, where it settled on the 182nd and 13th spot accordingly.

  • The fifth album, Mr. Beast, appeared in 2006. It was a big international success. Besides the UK,
