MOGWAI’S STUART BRAITHWAITE ON WHY THEY ONLY COME OUT AT NIGHT. What’s your festival survival tip? Bring loo rolls and paracetamol. Where’s your favourite festival? Fuji Rock and Primavera Sound are my favourites with the big line-ups. They’re nice and civilised; no one’s leaving any litter or setting tents on fire or puking on you. What’s your favourite festival memory? I saw The Cramps at Festimad in Madrid. It might be the best rock’n’roll gig I’ve ever seen. Where does the best festival food? All these fancy-schmancy ones have got pretty good food at them now. I got a nice dahl at Latitude. Who’s always fun to hang out with backstage? We’ve probably had more festival high jinks with Super Furry Animals than any other band. I remember Cian Ciarán, SFA’s keyboard player] leading a sing-song on the bus back to Tokyo from Fuji Rocks once. How has your approach to going to the festivals changed over the years? The main difference was that we’d always be playing in the afternoon where we’re now playing at night, which is good because you get paid more money, but you can’t spend all day drinking like we used to do! I usually go and watch a couple of bands. take it easy. We’re not a sunshine band, we don’t really move, we massively rely on the lights to entertain the crowd. It never worked playing in daylight!
