Mogwai, Super Furry Animals, Maximo Park Announce New Booze

From the Iron Maiden beer to Dan The Automator’s collaboration with Dogfish Head there is a grand tradition of musicians designing their own hooch, and this week can can add three UK bands to that list. First off, Scottish post-rock kings Mogwai have announced they will be releasing their own scotch whisky. It’s a 10 year old Speyside, which to put in perspective means this was just being put into casks while they were touring Happy Songs For Happy People. Elsewhere Super Furry Animals have joined with the Celtic Experience Brewery to create Fuzzy, a beer named after their debut album, Fuzzy Logic. Finally, when Maximo Park go on tour this year they will be selling bottles of Maximo No. 5, a new beer made at Newcastle’s Mordue Brewery, according to NME. We’ll let you know how they all taste once they send us the review copies … we get those right? (No -Ed.)
