Stuart Braithwaite was perhaps always destined for a life of psychedelic adventuring on the furthest frontiers of noise in Mogwai, one of the Glasgow and Scotland best loved bands. Spaceships Over Glasgow spans a delinquent childhood, rock star hedonism and making music in one of the most ground-breaking post-rock bands of the past three decades.

At school, Stuart Braithwaite developed an early appetite for ‘alternative’ music in what might arguably be described as its halcyon days, the late ’80s. Discovering bands like Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, and Jesus and Mary Chain, and attending seminal gigs by The Cure and Nirvana, Stuart compensated for his indifference to schoolwork with a dedication to rock and roll . . . and of course the fledgling hedonism that comes with it.
