My Bloody Valentine are an alternative rock band formed in Dublin, Ireland in 1984 and predominantly based in London. The founding members were guitarist/singer Kevin Shields and drummer Colm O'Ciosoig. The band's lineup during their heyday also included singer-guitarist Bilinda Butcher and bassist Debbie Googe. My Bloody Valentine is a low-budget Canadian horror film released in the wake of the rise of the slasher genre that had overtaken the 1980s, considered an example of the low-budget copycat films attempting to rake in money off the success of Halloween (1978) and Friday the 13th...

History

Early history

Colm O'Ciosoig and Kevin Shields met in the late 1970s as teenagers in Dublin. They quickly became friends and joined a local punk rock band named The Complex.[1] Toward the end of 1983, Shields and O'Ciosoig formed their own band with singer Dave Conway. Conway, who went by the stage name Dave Stelfox, suggested names such as Burning Peacocks before they settled on My Bloody Valentine.[2] The band was completed by Conway's girlfriend Tina, who played keyboards. Punk rock is an anti-establishment music movement beginning around 1976 (although precursors can be found several years earlier), exemplified and popularised by The Ramones, the Sex Pistols, The Clash and The Damned. ...


Gavin Friday of Dublin post-punk band The Virgin Prunes gave the group contacts that secured them a show in The Netherlands.[3] They stayed in Holland for three months before a dearth of opportunities and a lack of correct documentation meant they had to leave. The band then moved to Berlin, where they recorded the mini-LP This Is Your Bloody Valentine for Tycoon Records. The record failed to have the expected impact, and, after four months, the band left Berlin, returning to Holland briefly before settling in London around the middle of 1985. Gavin Friday (born Fionan Martin Hanvey, 8 October 1959, Dublin) is an Irish singer and songwriter, composer and painter. ... Post punk generally refers to the particularly fertile and creative period following the initial punk rock explosion.

Settling in London

After a period when My Bloody Valentine members lost contact with each other as they looked for places to stay, the band regrouped and decided to audition bass players. The band lacked a regular bassist and Conway's girlfriend had decided to leave the band, not feeling confident in her abilities as a keyboard player. Having been given the telephone number of a bass player in London, Debbie Googe, they invited her to audition, and, ultimately, to join the band, fitting in rehearsals around her day job. Debbie Googe (born 1962[1] in England[2]) was the bassist for Irish/British Shoegazing band My Bloody Valentine. ...


At this point the band were rehearsing at Salem Studios, which was connected to the record label Fever Records. Impressed by what they heard, Fever agreed to release an EP. On the strength of this, Googe left her job, and the EP, titled Geek! was released in December 1985. The band soon began to play on the London gig circuit, but the record failed to make as much of an impact as the band had hoped. With the band's slow progress, Shields contemplated moving back to New York, where some of his family were living. Geek! is the second EP by My Bloody Valentine. ...


However, Joe Foster, an associate of Creation Records, had decided to set up his own label, Kaleidoscope Records, and persuaded the group to record for him. The EP, The New Record by My Bloody Valentine, was the result, released in early 1986. The band also began to step up their live appearances, developing a small following and venturing outside London for gigs. This article does not cite any references or sources. ... At least two different record labels called Creation Records have existed. ... Tracklisting Lovelee Sweet Darlene By The Danger In Your Eyes Another Rainy Saturday Were So Beautiful ...


The band's next record was Sunny Sundae Smile, an EP released in February 1987 by Lazy Records, a label set up by The Primitives with their manager Wayne Morris. The label had been interested in My Bloody Valentine for a while, and the band turned to them this time due to Foster's indifference. The band then spent a few months performing in London and managed to secure a support slot with the Soup Dragons. During the shows with the Soup Dragons, Conway announced his decision to leave the band; he had been ill for a while and felt he was not reaching his potential with the band. Conway has since pursued a career as a writer. Tracklisting Sunny Sundae Smile Sylvies Head Paint A Rainbow Kiss The Eclipse ... This article is about the alternative rock band, the Primitives. ...

Conway departs; Butcher joins

Conway's departure left the band without a vocalist, a situation they decided to remedy by placing advertisements in the music press. This process proved torturous, Shields noting, "It was pretty dangerous, I made the mistake of mentioning The Smiths because we liked their melodies, the whole thing was disastrous and excruciating, you should have seen some of the fruitballs we got." The Smiths were an English rock band active from 1982 to 1987, based on the songwriting partnership of singer Morrissey and guitarist Johnny Marr. ...


The band eventually turned to recommendations and experimented with having two vocalists: Bilinda Butcher and Joe Byfield.[4] It soon became apparent that Byfield was unsuited to the band, and Shields took on second vocalist duties alongside Butcher; he noted she "sounded all right and she could sing one of our songs which sounded fine, we just had to show her how to play guitar."


Under pressure from Lazy Records to produce an album, the band compromised, citing the need for time to stabilize their line-up. The band agreed to record an EP followed by a mini LP. The EP, Strawberry Wine, consisted of three tracks and was released in August 1987. The mini-LP, titled Ecstasy, followed soon after. The EP has been described as "certainly the better of the two releases."[who?] Ecstasy has been criticized as showing "a group who appeared to have run out of money halfway through recording,"[who?] which was indeed the case. Ecstasy also suffered from production difficulties, as Shields described errors in mastering the recordings. These hardships were not surprising as the band were funding the studio time themselves; The deal with Lazy was that the label would do the promotion, the band paying for the recording.[citation needed] Strawberry Wine is a 1987 EP by My Bloody Valentine, their first release to feature new singer/guitarist Bilinda Butcher who shared vocal duties with Kevin Shields following the departure of Dave Conway. ... Ecstasy is an EP by My Bloody Valentine, released in an edition of 3,000 copies in November 1987. ...


Creation Records

In January 1988 My Bloody Valentine played a gig with Biff Bang Pow!, a band that featured Creation Records owner Alan McGee as a member. The performance convinced McGee that they were the British equivalent to American band Hüsker Dü, and he approached the band after the show.[5] The band decided to record a single for the label. My Bloody Valentine recorded five songs at a studio in Walthamstow in east London in less than a week. Released as the EP You Made Me Realise, the release was the band's first to be largely well-received by critics.[6] The group followed with the EP Feed Me with Your Kiss and the LP Isn't Anything (1988). The multi-layered guitar sound developed by My Bloody Valentine became a major influence on a number of new bands who the British music press grouped together under the shoegazing label. Biff Bang Pow! were an indie pop band from London, England, active between 1983 and 1991, centring around Creation Records boss Alan McGee. ...

Shoegazing was a generalized tag given to some alternative rock bands that emerged from the United Kingdom in the late 1980s. ...


My Bloody Valentine began work on their second full-length album in February 1989. Shields said that Creation thought the album could be recorded "in five days"; he later recalled, "But when it became clear that wasn't going to happen, they [Creation] freaked."[7] Work continued throughout the year. Shields and McGee agreed to release an EP prior to the album's release,[8] so the band recorded Glider, which was released in 1990. In May 1990 the band recorded a second EP, Tremolo (1991).[9] The band halted work on the album in order to tour behind the release of Glider in Summer 1990.[10] Glider is an EP by the British band My Bloody Valentine, released in the UK in 1990 on Creation Records in the UK and was the bands first release on the Sire Records label in the US. Soon would be included the following year as the closing track on... Tremolo is an EP by the Irish/British shoegazing band My Bloody Valentine, released in February 1991 on Creation Records. ...


It ultimately took My Bloody Valentine two years to finish their second album Loveless (1991). The making of the album was rumored to have cost £250,000 and to have nearly bankrupted Creation Records, claims which Shields has denied.[11] Reviews of Loveless were almost unanimous with praise.[12] The NME review of Loveless declared, "...however decadent one might find the idea of elevating other human beings to deities, My Bloody Valentine, failings and all, deserve more than your respect."[13] However, the album failed to perform commercially. Loveless peaked at number 24 on the British album charts, and failed to chart in the United States, where it was distributed by Sire Records.[12] McGee dropped My Bloody Valentine from Creation soon after the album's release because he could not bear working with Shields again; "It was either him or me", he told The Guardian in 2004.[14] Loveless is the second studio album by the Irish alternative rock band My Bloody Valentine. ...

Post-Creation

My Bloody Valentine signed with Island Records in October 1992, reportedly for £250,000.[15] The band spent their advance on constructing a studio in a house in Streatham. The studio was completed in April 1993, but problems with the studio and attempts to repair them cause the group to go into "semi-meltdown", according to Shields.[16] Island Records is a record label that was founded by British record producers in Jamaica. ... Streatham is a place in the London Borough of Lambeth in the United Kingdom . ...


The group recorded very little, which included the contribution of a cover of a James Bond theme song to a charity compilation, and a cover of the Wire song "Map Ref. 41 Degrees N 93 Degrees W" for the tribute album Whore: Tribute to Wire. Unable to finalise a third album, Shields isolated himself and, in his own words, went "crazy", drawing comparisons in the music press to the behavior of musicians such as Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys and Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd.[14] The other band members went their own ways during the period of inactivity following Loveless: Butcher contributed vocals to Collapsed Lung's 1996 single "Board Game",[17] Googe had been sighted working as a cab driver in London[18] and formed the supergroup Snowpony in 1996,[19] O'Ciosoig joined Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions,[20] while Shields collaborated with Yo La Tengo, Primal Scream, and Dinosaur Jr.[21] This article is about the spy series. ...

Rumors spread among fans of albums being recorded and then shelved. In 1999, it was reported that Shields had delivered 60 hours of material to Island.[15] According to sources, one was possibly influenced by jungle music.[18] Shields later confirmed that at least one full album of new material was abandoned. He said, "We did an album's worth of half-finished stuff, and it did just get dumped, but it was worth dumping. It was dead. It hadn't got that spirit, that life in it."[22] Shields later said to Magnet magazine, "We are 100 percent going to make another My Bloody Valentine record unless we die or something," and attributed the band's sparse output to a lack of inspiration.[23] Drum and bass (commonly abbreviated to d&b, DnB, dnb, dnb, drum n bass, drum & bass) is a type of electronic dance music also known as jungle which emerged in the late 1980s. ...

Reunion

In 2007 Shields announced that the band had reunited and that a new album they had started recording in 1996 was "3/4th finished."[24] In August 2007, internet rumors claimed that the band were negotiating a performance at the 2008 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival or were planning a world tour. Vinita Joshi, Kevin Shields' manager, said "there are no confirmed shows at all."[25][26][27] This article is about the annual music and arts festival. ...


On November 15th 2007, My Bloody Valentine announced three upcoming live gigs in the UK for 2008.[28] According to the festival's website, they are also confirmed as part of the 2008 edition of Festival Internacional de Benicàssim (Spain, July 17th- 20th.),[29] Roskilde Festival (Denmark, July 3rd- 6th), Fuji Rock Festival 08 (Japan, July 25th-27th), Øyafestivalen (Oslo, Norway, August 5th- 8th) and The Electric Picnic Festival (Ireland, August 29 - 31st).[30] They are also confirmed headliners for Bestival 2008, which takes place on the Isle of Wight in September.

On June 13th and 14th, the band played in public for the first time in thirteen years, offering a pair of 'Live Rehearsal' presentations at the ICA in London and officially starting their series of comeback performances. They played a 15 song set consisting of material from the albums 'Isn't Anything', and 'Loveless', and also from the 'You Made Me Realise', and 'Tremolo' EP's. None of the new and, as yet, unreleased material that MBV have recently made was played. The full set list was:


'Only Shallow', 'You Never Should', 'Honey Power', 'I Only Said', 'Cigarette In Your Bed', 'Thorn', 'Nothing Much To Lose', 'To Here Knows When', 'When You Sleep', 'Slow', 'Blown A Wish', 'Soon', 'Feed Me With Your Kiss', 'Sueisfine', 'You Made Me Realise'[1]
