Mogwai Supports Obama

In a recent Wired interview, members of Glasgow rock legends Mogwai, Barry Burns and Stuart Brathwaite, discussed the current global political climate, lamented George W. Bush's idiocy, and showed support for Barack Obama.
One thing which is not a good thing, according to the outspoken band, is George W. Bush. Burns once joked online that Mogwai would bypass touring America after Bush was elected to his second term in 2004. Things have only fallen apart since then, culminating in a Cold War rerun with Russia and Georgia. And although the band doesn't have a dog in the nasty fight otherwise known as the 2008 election, it's as ready for change as any other U.S. citizen.

"The political situation is worrying," Brathwaite says. "As Boney M famously sang, 'Oh those crazy Russians!' But Bush is a total idiot and I'm so glad that America has realized what a fool he is. I like what I've heard so far from Obama. He is an inspiring speaker, which is a marked changed from W, who can't even speak."
