My Bloody Valentine To Appear In A Room Together Next Summer

Nov 15th, 2007 // 14 Comments

mbvbullshit.jpgHey, guess who’s been booked for some shows.

Yes, it turns out ATP has a flyer up advertising, count ‘em, three shows from a reunited My Bloody Valentine in London, Manchester, and Glasgow next June and July. Tickets apparently go on sale tomorrow from the venues. And as promised way back when the rumors hit and we called bullshit, we’ll certainly stick to our promise of not attending any of these reunion concerts should they come to pass. Mr. Daily Swarm can enjoy his crowing. And hopefully you can enjoy the fact that Idolator’s not a news-y links shill/front for Vice and/or a bunch of other publicity firms. Whoops, using the out loud voice there.

    Well, I guess I’ll have to buy a new pair of ear plugs AND ear muffs.

    And the secret of the shows is…they’re acoustic!

    you guys sponsor the attending of Fall Out Boy functions, but refuse to do such for My Bloody Valentine?

    oh, you!

    and no, i don’t want a Macy’s gift card.

    I’ve heard that the new album features guest spots by a dog whistle, a dial-up modem from 1995, and humpback whale.

    No, actually, you know something? My memory of the MBV concert I saw in ’92 is so vivid and so precious to me I’m not going to bother trying to supplement it with what is in effect a reunion concert.

    This reminds me of the time I told my brother that if New Edition
    got back together, I’d move to Alaska, live in an abandoned bus, and
    fake my own–

    I’ve said too much already.

  7. Ned Raggett

    @Bob Loblaw: Post of the year.

    @dickdogfood: That’s actually a bit of how I feel. Probably will still go when they appear out here, though.

    I heard that their shows were awful. Almost trying to piss people off with a wall of noise and that they used pre-recorded tracks for drums!

  9. Ned Raggett

    @roosterocker: I had other thoughts. (Scroll to the final paragraphs.)

  10. Dick Laurent is dead.

    That seals it, I’m going on that London graphic design trip- goodbye, money!

    @Dick Laurent is dead.: y’know, they are playing Coachella…

  12. Cam/ron

    Something tells me that their reunion show will be louder than ever since their hearing is shot to shit. However I’m curious if they would leave the stage and let their guitars feedback for 10 minutes at the show’s end, just like the old days.

  13. Dick Laurent is dead.

    @Cos: Yes, because I want to stand in the shit and sun for three days in the middle of fuck nowhere, surrounded by hipsters, standing in a puddle of flat beer and godknowswhat smelling nothing but sweat and shitty weed.

    Yeah, no thanks.

    (Nothing personal, I just hate outdoor festivals.)

    @Dick Laurent is dead.: Yeah, you’re right. The really, completely and totally sad thing about me is that I’d actually put up with festival bullshit in order to catch MBV do their thing – even a pudgy, wrinkly, 40+ version of MBV. You see, I was living in Australia back in 91/92, when I was routinely and compulsively masturbating over Loveless. Bands tend not to come to Australia for some reason. It’s too far or it’s too hot or our accents are too strange.
