"Yes! I Am a Long Way from Home" as written by and Dominic Aitchison....
"'Cause this music can put a human being in a trance like state and deprive it for the sneaking feeling of existing.'Cause music is bigger than words and wider than pictures. If someone said that Mogwai are the stars I would not object. If the stars had a sound it would sound like this.The punishment for these solemn words can be hard. Can blood boil like this at the sound of a noisy tape that I've heard. I know one thing. On Saturday, the sky will crumble together (or something) with a huge bang to fit into the cave."

    General CommentOh, I just found this on Wikipedia:

    'From (5:27), the backmasked voice of Barry Burns is heard jokingly boasting, "When ah shag a bird yee'd think Antarctica hud defrosted oan her bed!" and "Sometimes when ah'm puffing hash ah get a bird tae suck mah dong!".[10] This recording ends with the sound of laughter.'

    That's nice Barry. Let's just be thankful the voice is 'backmasked'.

    General CommentBought Young Team several years ago shortly after moving off to school on my own, and instantly fell in love with Mogwai via this song.
    I used to play it really loud in the mornings getting ready for class. People in rez weren't too fond of me.

    General CommentIt takes some really enormous balls to launch your debut album with a field recording of a fan saying that your band sounds like the stars. And it's even more impressive that they managed to delib
