Hmmm. I suspect this thread will either die within the next few posts or I'll come back tomorrow morning greeted with 250 new ones.
Which will it be?

No, he's going to hit us with a sledgehammer and then put us in the Pedigree.

Not if Kevin Nash saves us! (Note: Kevin Nash is physically incapable of running, so don't count on it)

"Our music is very feminine, it sucks", quoth Kev, "you in". Defense enough, I guess.

from under the radar

My Bloody Valentine Back in the Studio after 12 Year Hiatus

Sometimes news comes down the grapevine that’s so good you have to spread the word. Otherwise it would be an injustice to humanity. When word came to those of us at Under the Radar that My Bloody Valentine have been holed up in a Berlin studio we couldn’t quite believe it. After all, the band hasn’t released anything in twelve years. Being the dutiful rock journalists that we are we sought confirmation on the rumor only to be foiled again. Our source on this bit of breaking news wishes to remain strictly anonymous. But he did confirm the buzz.

My Bloody Valentine is finally back in the studio. As it turns out an MBV box set is due out sometime this winter and Kevin Shields, Colin O’Ciosiog and Bilinda Butcher are back in the studio to re-record a few songs for it. No, there will not be a new MBV album, but the band is re-recording 5 songs they had abandoned for the Glider EP. Originally the Glider EP was to be a full-length album, but due to pressures from the record company Shields decided to only release five songs as an EP because the other material wasn’t ready to see the light of day. The left over Glider songs were shelved and Shields and company moved on to the never-ending Loveless sessions. As many of you know, after Loveless the band went their separate ways (for whatever speculative reason) and those leftover Glider songs remained on the shelf....until now. Although there has been no confirmation on whether or not vocalist Debbie Googe is also in on the new sessions it is a bona fide fact that My Bloody Valentine will release Glider as a full-length album contained within the new MBV box set, if all goes well.

Is it possible the seeds for a comeback are planted?

God, let’s hope so!

In other, more official, My Bloody Valentine related news, Kevin Shields has just scored the new film by Virgin Suicides director Sofia Coppola, entitled Lost In Translation. The movie stars Bill Murray as a fading TV star, Ghost World’s Scarlett Johansson, and Giovanni Ribisi, and is described as exploring the relationship between two strangers (Murray and Johansson) who meet and explore the foreign world of Tokyo and life’s aspirations. Emperor Norton Records will be putting out the Original Movie Soundtrack on September 9th, which contains two brand new Kevin Shields songs, four of his score pieces, an exclusive track by Virgin Suicides composers Air, as well as songs by Jesus & Mary Chain, Death In Vegas, Squarepusher and Phoenix. Lost In Translation the movie is due in New York and Los Angeles theaters September 19th, and later in the rest of the country.

thank god somebody worked in a HHH joke -- i thought i was gunna have to do it myself.

fun fact, as noted by Scott Keith: one of the side effects of dramatic steroid use is a weaking of connective tissue, such as the type that holds muscle to bone... it's a only a matter of time, really, before he blows out another quad or something on national tv. perhaps it's something to look forward to.

Unfuckwithable list, but I'm definitely missing 'Sunny Sundae Smile' and 'Slow'.

'Paint A Rainbow' too tbh. I love that EP.

Bilinda Butcher is so pretty. She aged pretty good too... probably the only member of the band that aged good.
