My Bloody Valentine
WebsiteMy Bloody Valentine
The band that effectively invented the shoegaze sound, My Bloody Valentine made one of the busiest, swirliest, head-twistingest albums of all time in Loveless. When it came out in 1991, swathed in what sounded like thousands of layers of guitar sounds, Loveless started something of a whisper campaign against rock as it had been known up until then. Then came a long silence. And more of it, until My Bloody Valentine finally got back together to play a handful of festivals and one-off shows in late 2008.
