My Bloody Valentine is a shoegaze band formed in 1984 in Dublin, Ireland. The band’s best known lineup is Kevin Shields (vocals, guitar), Bilinda Butcher (vocals, guitar), Debbie Googe (bass) and Colm O’Ciosoig (drums). Shields and O’Ciosoig are the only original members of the band still in the group. In 1991, the band released their second full length album “Loveless”, later declared one of the finest albums of the 1990s and the definitive work of the shoegaze genre. The band struggled to record a follow up album and split in 1997. The band reunited in 2007 and performed several concerts the following year.
Loveless, the EP clearly shows the direction the band is heading towards. Release by Creation Records.
