The cross sum of Slowdive, Mogwai and Editors is called Minor Victories. Their sound is clearly anchored in the 80s. They are less concerned with uniting the foundations of the three mother bands into a new cathedral of mercantile madness than with almost shamelessly admitting their allegiance to the common models that range from The Cure to My Bloody Valentine.
The concept of the Supergroup is over one hundred years old. In jazz it was still called Allstar Band and made an institution that either big bands battle each other or the winners of the big polls are called Poll Winners Band. In rock Cream united to form the first supergroup, the Beatles mutated into the supergroup of their own members by 1968 at the latest, and countless examples followed, from Emerson, Lake & Palmer to Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and the Traveling Wilburys to Them Crooked Vultures.
