* EarlyBirdCameo: Barry Burns provided the backmasked monologue on ''Mogwai Young Team'''s "Yes! I am a Long Way From Home." This was a year before he joined the band.
* GreatestHitsAlbum: ''Central Belters'', released in 2015 and compiling songs from their early singles to their then-recent EP, ''Music Industry 3, Fitness Industry 1''.

* SixthRanger: From 1998-2016, Luke Sutherland was a long-time touring mate and friend of the band, playing backup guitars and violin on a fair amount of their songs, and co-writing [[StepUpToTheMicrophone and singing]] "Mexican Grand Prix" from ''Harcore Will Never Die, but You Will''. Throughout his 18-year run, however, he was never officially a member of the band.
* StageNames: For their first album, ''Mogwai Young Team'', the band used them. Braithwaite was credited as "[=pLasmatroN=]," Aitchison as "DEMONIC," Bulloch as "bionic," Cummings as "Cpt. Meat," and O'Hare as "+the relic+". These would be dropped by the time of ''Come On Die Young''.
* VocalTagTeam: If the song does have vocals, chances are that the singer is Stuart Braithwaite. ''Happy Songs for Happy People'', however, sees Barry Burns and John Cummings step up to sing instead, and they've contributed their fair share of vocals since then (in the latter's case, prior to his departure, of course). They frequently also bring in guests to record vocals, both spoken and sung.

Added DiffLines:

Mogwai are a PostRock band hailing from Glasgow, Scotland. They are also [[GenreBusting very hard to describe]], due to their eclecticism. A few constants, however, include their very legendary {{Instrumentals}}, their love of distortion and effects, and an average song length of about [[EpicRocking 6 minutes.]]

Their lineup has included:
*Stuart Braithwaite- Guitar, Vocals (1995-present)
*Dominic Aitchison- Bass, Guitar (1995-present)
*Martin Bulloch- Drums (1995-present)
*Barry Burns- Guitar, Bass, Keyboards, Synthesizer, Flute, Vocals (1998-present)
*Luke Sutherland- Violin, Guitar, Vocals (unofficial touring member, 1998-present)
*Brendan O'Hare- Keyboards, Guitar (1997)
*John Cummings- Guitar, Laptop (1995-2015)
