So here are all four parts of the interview with My Bloody Valentine Kevin Shields as done by the host of Soft Focus Ian Svenonious
We kind of don’t want to spoil it for you, but in this edition Ian sits down with the man behind My Bloody Valentine’s deafening and dreamy reimagining of guitar music, who has, shall we say, a little announcement about the supposedly defunct band.
In this installment, Kevin talks to us about all the technical minutia behind My Bloody Valentine’s crazy bendy dream-sound and dispells their association with all the 4AD and shoegaze bands they always get lumped in/between. Lots of good music-geek jargon like wet vs. dry production, reverse reverb, chord resolution, that sort of stuff.
In part three, Ian and Kevin discuss the effects of growing up in both New York and Ireland on Kevin’s musical and “coolness” sensibilities, Husserl’s theory of phenomenological reduction, My Bloody Valentine’s crazed Catholic stalker, and learning to appreciate the music of Joe Meeks even after one of the guys from the Tornados tried to convince Kevin he was going deaf.
In the final part of his interview, Kevin pooh-poohs the notion that My Bloody Valentine were louder than any other bands, describes the inherent problems in the idea of revolution, and calls out the “carbon neutrality” movement for the naive horses#!& it is, while Ian harangues him about the song “Glider.”
