They found boxes of Kain's The Blue Guerilla album years ago and they were selling them for a buck apiece at 3rd Street Jazz and I only bought two at the time. Shoulda bought a whole box of them.

How many are in the box? If it's 10 or more I'll pay the 24 pahnd.

does rocket girl release records any more?

keith m (keithmcl), Monday, 31 May 2004 19:37 (sixteen years ago) link

The cost above is per LP... (sorry if it's not clear)

Rocket Girl is having a break right now....but yes there will be more releases in the future...

rocket girl, Monday, 31 May 2004 19:50 (sixteen years ago) link

that's exorbitant. that is good news on the rocket girl future comeback.

ANyway to bring it back, as 'twere, is a vinyl E&W worth whats probably over $50AUD? Blimey. Shouldve nicked the ex's copy while I had the chance.

Quite. Rocket Girl aka V. Joshi is VERY cool and I will testify to that as a friend of some years' standing now. Unlike some characters who have posted here offering their wares, she has known about and occasionally contributed to ILX for a long while.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Monday, 31 May 2004 22:11 (sixteen years ago) link

i'm not entirely sure of the going rate for the vinyl but i know there are still copies of the "reissued" cd version floating about.

fwiw the mastering on the vinyl LP is pretty decent, it's a nice sounding piece of vinyl. i paid A$30 for it a good ten years ago and never regretted it.

the surface noise made by people (electricsound), Monday, 31 May 2004 22:18 (sixteen years ago) link

I have a copy of the CD - it isnt worth anything tho surely?

Trayce (trayce), Tuesday, 1 June 2004 00:43 (sixteen years ago) link

yes and no. it was pretty rare for ages until (depending on who you believe) a stack were "found at a distributors" or it was "repressed" or it was straight-up bootlegged (quite well though i thought) and then there were quite a few copies around and the price went down. those seem to have dried up now so perhaps the value is on the way back up?

the surface noise made by people (electricsound), Tuesday, 1 June 2004 00:54 (sixteen years ago) link

the interest in this stuff isn't nearly as high as it is for CD copies of the Creation-era EPs

my original print of isn't anything has this weird surface dirt issue that i can't seem to resolve.. most of the album is fine, though

chris andrews (fraew), Thursday, 6 January 2005 21:48 (sixteen years ago) link

This track, perhaps called "2" was made by Kevin Shields specifically for the La La La Human Steps dance troupe production also called simply 2 (from 1995 - video clips can be found here. I believe Michael Apted also made a film that was played during the performance. It sounds like an extended take of one of the incidental interstitial tracks from To Here Knows When and Loveless. However, I also think it's somehow much more beautiful than any of those. I am desperate to find a high quality recording of this track. Like MBV's "Sugar" before, it's now my holy grail of music! I've contacted the La La La Human Steps but unfortunately, no CD was ever made...

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Thursday, 6 January 2005 22:06 (sixteen years ago) link

Cripes! I had just discovered & was just d/loading said interview when I clicked on this thread. Spooky.

They’re too corny to qualify, but I am a faux ILXor so you can discard my opinion.

pomenitul, Thursday, 1 April 2021 21:34 (two weeks ago) link

ppl really swear by the 2018 pressing of loveless, even on this thread, i'm inclined to believe them, which is why i just attempted to order the deluxe loveless from a record store in belgium lol

looking forward to that order getting canceled

mbv aren't corny at all imo, they're almost maddeningly vague and ungraspable

imago, Thursday, 1 April 2021 21:53 (two weeks ago) link

God, I wish. But I’ve already bitched about this countless times across several threads. I’m not going to rehash my gripes here, especially since I do like MBV (I don’t love them tho).

It's sold out everywhere!!!

HuskerDoolittle, Thursday, 1 April 2021 21:59 (two weeks ago) link

I suppose what makes the new digital source for Loveless worthwhile (and obviously ymbvmmv in that regard) is it will be truer to the original release than the analog cut and also closer to the recording than the original release.

Noel Emits, Thursday, 1 April 2021 22:01 (two weeks ago) link

ymbvmmv

new album title

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 1 April 2021 22:01 (two weeks ago) link

It's a fact of human biology that neither Kevin Shields nor anyone who heard Loveless in 1991 has hearing that can still distinguish any differences in these remasters

But, to make things that much more complicated, listeners in North America still can’t hear You Made Me Realise or Feed Me With Your Kiss.

unless they have a CD player, own the original singles, or have access to Youtube or Soulseek. Otherwise, yes, impossible

Re that Pitchfork list; Slow is on Spotify as part of the ‘EPs’ compilation, at least in the UK. Must be missing for some reason in the States.

piscesx, Friday, 2 April 2021 10:35 (one week ago) link

the EPs compilation isn't available on streaming in the States because of some issue with the rights to it being owned by Warner there according to the NYT article

feed me with your chips (zchyrs), Friday, 2 April 2021 12:35 (one week ago) link

which is especially funny considering how shields said he obsessed over the lyrics for loveless almost as much as the music because he didn't want them to be bad

ufo, Friday, 2 April 2021 12:46 (one week ago) link

tbf the audible lyrics of loveless are not bad

clunkiest classic mbv lyric: "slow"

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Friday, 2 April 2021 12:56 (one week ago) link

I actually don't mind the (generic) lyrics all that much, they're barely intelligible anyway. It's the melodic contour of a song like 'Blown a Wish' that impels a kind of visceral disgust on my end. Maybe it's, uh, genetic – I've always hated twee-sounding music, even when I was a wee kid. Come to think of it, much of what I dislike about Loveless is of the same order as what I dislike about Pet Sounds, except MBV peddles quantifiably less of it and has those awesome geetars to make up for it.

Right, I'm referring to the 15% of the time when one lyric or phrase is audible.

billstevejim, Friday, 2 April 2021 15:03 (one week ago) link

I'm pretty sure the point was that they're supposed to be felt more than heard, not emphasized above the music as something that could potentially distract. None of their records had lyric sheets.

billstevejim, Friday, 2 April 2021 15:09 (one week ago) link

I guess I grew really accustomed to the sound of my old mp3s from the early 2000s bc the Youtube rip of the EPs comp sounds kind of amazing.

Can Slow be quantified as hornier than Soft As Snow (But Warm Inside)? Might require polling.

New and long Kevin Shields interview in today's Libération. One great tidbit - dunno if this is old news but it was new to me - is his love for early De La Soul and Public Enemy and how their use of sampling evoked Long Island in the '70s for him. Then he realized both groups were from LI!

Nope. But he does put to the rest the idea that AR Kane were an influence. Says he admired their stuff up to 1990 but MBV were going in an entirely different direction.
