Kevin Shields Promises One More Great MBV Record
Fifteen years on from the release of the seminal record Loveless, remixer-for-hire Kevin Shields spoke with Magnet about making another My Bloody Valentine record, saying, “We are 100 percent going to make another My Bloody Valentine record unless we die or something.” Unless you die or something? Kevin, you WILL die! What are you waiting for?! He went on: (via PunkNews):
A lot of people say the reason My Bloody Valentine didn’t make another record is because we couldn’t. That’s mostly true, but not because we couldn’t make another record, but because I never could be bothered to make another record unless I was really excited by it. And just by fate or whatever, that never happened. I’m quite optimistic about the future, even though experience has taught me that I’m probably just delusional. I do feel that I will make another great record … I’d feel really bad if I didn’t make another record. Like, shit, people only got the first two chapters, but the last bit is the best bit.
Gotta love the Loveless-topping bravado. As for a release date, he offered, “It’s just that it’s taken me such an oddly long time for that to happen. How long will that take to transpire into an actual physical record? I don’t know.” Look forward to it hopefully before they die or something. Best be better than that Bow Wow Wow “remix”.
