Minor Victories Supergroup On Their Long-Distance Approach

Minor Victories

(Prog) Minor Victories say trust was the key to making their long-distance band relationship work. The supergroup is made up of members of Mogwai, Slowdive and Editors and they release their self-titled debut album via Fat Possum Records on June 3.

The band members - Slowdive vocalist Rachel Goswell, Mogwai guitarist Stuart Braithwaite, Editors guitarist Justin Lockey and bass player James Lockey - recorded the album without ever all being in the same room at the one time.

And while it worked for them, Braithwaite admits it won't work for everyone. He tells Rolling Stone: "I think a lot of people would be a little too precious to do this. We went into this with really good spirit and a lot of trust in each other.

"A lot of musicians need minute-to-minute discussions about how things go. Quite often, bands have members that are pretty precious. Thankfully, no band I've ever been in.

"I don't think it's going to overtake everyone getting into a room and playing, but it's good to know that there are other ways to make records." Read more here.
