"Music Industry 3rd Fitness Industry 1st" is an unusual title. The work is also not an ordinary Mogwai album, but a 6-track EP (31 minutes playing time). Among them are three songs that were recorded for the last album "Rave Tapes", but were not used in the end, and three remixes of other "Rave Tape" tracks. Among the songs not used so far, "History Day" stands out. A quiet, partly ambient track with a famous piano. The short, but violent "Teenage Exorcists" and the crisp "HMP Shaun William Ryder" are typical Mogwai, seamlessly joining the "Rave Tape" cosmos. More interesting are the remixes: Blanck Mass ("Re-Remurdered") and Pye Corner ("No Medicine For Regret") present an electronic version, while Nils Frahm ("The Lord Is Out Of Control") presents a sluggish, noisy version. This EP is nothing more than an interlude on the way to the next Mogwai album.
