EP is an EP by Scottish post-rock group Mogwai, released in various countries in 1999.
EP is Mogwai's third EP. It features four tracks, "Stanley Kubrick" (recorded at Sub Station Studio in Cowdenbeath, Scotland and produced by Michael Brennan Jr., assisted by Kevin Lynch), "Christmas Song", "Burn Girl Prom Queen", and "Rage:Man" (all recorded at CaVa Studios in Glasgow, Scotland, and also produced by Michael Brennan Jr., assisted by Tony Doogan and Willie Deans). The US release of EP is titled EP+2, due to the two bonus tracks, "Rollerball", and "Small Children in the Background", both from No Education = No Future (Fuck the Curfew), which was not released in the US. All four tracks on EP were later included on the 2000 compilation album, EP+6. The cover of EP is similar to the cover of EP+6, as they both feature the same image, a movie still entitled "Watertower" by Scottish photographer Neale Smith, of a Water tower in East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire, Scotland.
