MyBloodyValentine-Loveless MyBloodyValentine-Loveless

My Bloody Valentine were formed in Dublin, Ireland in 1984 and predominantly based in London. The founding members were guitarist/singer Kevin Shields and drummer Colm Ó Cíosóig. During a period, the band's lineup also included singer-guitarist Bilinda Butcher and bassist Debbie Googe.

I have always found My Bloody Valentine's dreamy-like signature sound, use of distortion, pitch bending and reverb, an easing, yet mind bending experiace.
Careful, they cause a major shoegaze.
