Born the son of Scotland's last telescope-make, Stuart Braithwaite was perhaps always destined for a life of psychedelic adventuring on the furthest frontiers of noise in Mogwai, one of the best loved and most ground-breaking post-rock bands of the past three decades.
Modestly delinquent at school, Stuart developed an early appetite for 'alternative' music in 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 made up for his indifference to schoolwork with a dedication to rock and roll... and of course the fledgling hedonism that comes with it.
This is the story of a fan who got to live his dream. Spaceships Over Glasgow is a love song to rock and roll: to the pasionate abandon we've alI felt in the crowd, and some of us from the stage.
