Kevin Shields Interviewed on VBS.TV
VBS.TV's Ian Svenonius interviews My Bloody Valentine mastermind Kevin Shields, the primary creative force behind Loveless and Isn't Anything, two of the greatest rock albums of all time. It's not the most scintillating interview ever, but if you're a My Bloody Valentine fanatic, you'll want to watch. (You're not a My Bloody Valentine fanatic?

Among other things, Shields discusses the forthcoming MBV album, which is “pretty much three-quarters done.” (Translation: It may be finished by Obama's second term in office.) This record will include reworked material from the mid-'90s along with some newer tracks and will involve the classic Loveless lineup (drummer Colm O'Ciosoig, guitarist/vocalist Bilinda Butcher and bassist Deb Googe). Holding of one's breath for this probable masterpiece is not advised.
