EP+6 is a compilation album by Scottish post-rock group Mogwai, released in Japan in 2000 through Toy's Factory, and later in the UK in 2001 through Chemikal Underground.

Overview[edit]

EP+6 brings together all three of Mogwai's previous EPs: 1997's 4 Satin, 1998's No Education = No Future (Fuck the Curfew), and 1999's EP, in a Remastered and Enhanced CD, featuring the music video for "Stanley Kubrick". The Japanese version also included a music video for "Xmas Steps", whilst the UK version included a Screensaver, images of Mogwai, and reviews. The cover of EP+6 is similar to the cover of EP, as they both feature the same image, a movie still entitled "Watertower" by Scottish photographer Neale Smith,[1] of a water tower in East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire, Scotland.[2]
