Dublin, Ireland (1983 – 1997, 2007 – present)

My Bloody Valentine is a band formed in late 1983 in Dublin, Ireland. The band’s best known lineup is Kevin Shields (vocals, guitar), Bilinda Butcher (vocals, guitar), Debbie Googe (bass) and Colm Ó Cíosóig (drums). Their 1988 album Isn’t Anything is generally regarded as one of the most influential records of the period, acting as an important precursor to the early ’90s “shoegazing” scene. In 1991, the band released their second full length album Loveless, later declared one of the finest albums of the 1990s. 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. The band released their third album, m b v, in February 2013.

The band’s key member is guitarist/singer/composer Kevin Shields, a reclusive perfectionist and radically inventive guitarist/engineer. The band’s other original member is drummer/studio maven Colm Ó Cíosóig; during their heyday MBV also included singer-guitarist Bilinda Butcher and bassist Debbie Googe. Their band shares its name with a low-budget Canadian slasher film.

MBV influences include The Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, Cocteau Twins, late-1970s Wire, The Jesus and Mary Chain, and independent artists such as The Pastels. Kevin Shields has also named The Beach Boys as a personal influence.

    Just wanted to say I was VERY disappointed with the sound at the show in Austin last year, if you go to an MBV show don't expect it to be like the records... or even particularly good... dammit, we're not all there to wank over bilinda, although some of these guys are. (that being said Slowdive is reunited and the tour videos I've seen are amazing)

    These songs represent a symbol of my individuality and my belief in personal freedom.
