Editors, Slowdive and Mogwai members form new group Minor Victories

Supergroup are working on an album that's 'sounding fucking class'

Members of Slowdive, Mogwai and Editors are part of a newly-announced project.

The band will go by the name of Minor Victories, featuring Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell, Editors guitarist Justin Lockey, Mogwai’ bandleader Stuart Braithwaite and James Lockey of Hand Held Cine Club.

Pitchfork report that the group are at work on their debut album and that the release will feature a duet between Goswell and Sun-Kil-Moon‘s Mark Kozelek.

“So there’s a record (like a real long player from back in the day) being made, a band being formed, noise being traded, analogies thrown around between Rachel Goswell (Slowdive) Justin Lockey (Editors) Stuart Braithwaite (Mogwai) James Lockey (handheldcineclub),” James Lockey is quoted as saying.

“There’s some other people involved too but more on that later… For the time being, it’s sounding fucking class.”

Goswell tweeted of the news: “I would like to suggest peeps follow @Minor_Victories a very exciting project I am involved in!”
