For our November sessions we will be looking back at one of the most influential albums of the nineties Irish rock band My Bloody Valentine’s second studio album Loveless.
Coming at a cost of £250,000 Loveless pushed Alan McGee’s Creation Records to financial breaking point and also pushed the band themselves to the edge with personal disputes and relationship breakdowns all occurring along the way. Perhaps it was worth it as Kevin Shields quest for perfection and boundless faith ultimately served him well as Loveless is revered as not only the magnum opus of ‘Shoegaze’ but as one of the greatest rock albums ever created.
Join us as we celebrate Loveless in style with album listening sessions around the world and experience My Bloody Valentine in a way you never have before.
