-“the band’s earliest incarnation was nothing to write home about: a dublin-based crew of second-rate nick cave wannabes. after some lineup shuffles, forgettable records, and dalliances with sunny indie pop, their style reached maturity in 1988 with a pair of eps and the remarkable isn't anything album. it was druggy, time-bending and mercilessly loud, built around songwriter kevin shields’ tremolo-crazed guitar assault, a tidal wave of noise through which his and bilinda butcher’s breathy voices beckoned like flickers from a lighthouse. from then on, “you made me realise”—its 30-second white-noise bridge sometimes expanding to more than half an hour on stage—inevitably served as the finale for their shows. an entire scene emerged around the band: “shoegazer” acts like ride and chapterhouse, who emulated mbv’s virtues of dreamy melodicism and blistering guitar noise.
it took three years and an extraordinary amount of money—estimates range from a third- to half-a-million dollars—to record mbv’s first masterpiece, 1992’s loveless. aside from butcher’s vocals and a short sample collage by drummer colm o’ciosoig, loveless was essentially shields’ solo project: he played all the guitar parts himself, obsessively perfecting and tweaking every sound. the band was in top form on the album’s tour but—in his mind—shields had already moved on to its next phase...” ℳℬv 💡🖤🌹🔪
Tonight my wildest shoegaze dreams came true as i met two slowdive fans in easthampton within the span of one hour, and then the second guy—chef at the wonderful @eatdailyop —proceeded to play loveless at the restaurant. #slowdive#mbv@slowdiveofficial
