Ed Wallis, singer and songwriter for My Sad Captains, wrote much of the material for Fight Less, Win More (released Nov 7th) alone in a borrowed house in San Francisco. Returning to England, the band – Jim Wallis (drums, keyboards, vocals), Nick Goss (guitar, sonics) and Dan Davis (bass) – decamped to the Cornish countryside to record the album in a barn where the natural acoustics combined with the band’s collective input brought the record to life.
They then sent the album tracks to Portland to be mixed by Larry Crane (editor of Tape Op magazine) known for his work for artists such as Cat Power, Sleater-Kinney, The Go-Betweens, Elliott Smith, M. Ward and Stephen Malkmus amongst many others.
The album is a hand silk screen printed edition limited to 300 copies. Artwork is a collaboration between artists Phil Goss, Nick Goss and Dan Davis.
