Scottish 'post-rock' band formed in Glasgow in 1995 by Stuart Braithwaite (guitars, vocals), Dominic Aitchison (guitars) and Martin Bulloch (drums). John Cummings soon joined in as an additional guitarist.
Brendan O'Hare (ex-Teenage Fanclub), joined the band temporarily in 1997 and helped make their debut LP 'Young Team'. O'Hare left the band at the end of 1997. After touring with the band in the summer of 1998, the multi-instrumentalist Barry Burns was asked to join Mogwai as a full-time member.
