It must have to do with Creation going under and the painstaking process that goes into trying to re-issue it. I looked for "Loveless" on vinyl via ebay and they go up to 100 bucks, shiiiiiiit. I want to play the record, not frame the damn thing. Please, just hurry up and re-issue this so I can buy it and listen to it the way it was meant to be listened to.
Dude... I got Loveless on vinyl from Amazon for 15 like last year?

EDIT: Fair play, looked on the US Amazon and it's like $140... sucks to be American eh.

At least that's what I've heard. So it's not just because they were pretentius, it was kinda necessary to play this kind of music.
Makes a lot of sense, I bet the connection was made by the journalists who found the type of music pretentious and decided to harp on the looking down thing.

Should do the rest of the MBV catalouge, seems like many people don't even know they did anything outside of "Loveless".

There is a My Bloody Valentine thread, it's just people usually end up talking exclusively about Loveless. That's why this one has its own, I suppose.

It sounds like 2 different bands, honestly. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people felt that way...especially people that might like something a little more raw and heavy.

These guys were an Irish band weren't they? Or am I mistaken?

Half Irish, half English.

I love both albums, for the very reason that they offer something entirely different from one another. They're both influential. You Made Me Realise is also one of my favourite EPs EVER.

It's debatable really, they formed in Dublin in 1984 and their original line-up was all Irish, so there you could argue they are an Irish band. They moved to Holland shortly after before settling in London and changing the line-up, recruiting two English members Bilinda Butcher and Debbie Googe, and becoming associated with the jangle-pop scene and later the shoegazing scene in London. To me they feel more like an English band though, their website domain is even 'co.uk', but it's probably 50:50 really.
