I’ve been having a bit of a My Bloody Valentine moment lately, and discovered this clip/review of their first LP – Isn’t anything – on, where else, but youtube.

The reviewer calls it a “missed opportunity”, which is amusing given that their followup album, Loveless, is now hailed (according to one writer I came across recently) as being “part of the canon”.

Then again, I was listening to pro-am radio the other day (AKA FBi) and the deejay took great pains to define the term “shoegazer” and then played Ride’s Vapour Trail as an example. That’s well and good. Ride were shoegaze. Vapour Trail is a lovely song, but surely if you’re going to give an impromtu seminar on shoegaze you’d simply play something (preferably “soon” or “come in alone”) from Loveless and be done with it.
