Same thing happens to me. I hate that I can't turn around and start ripping on them for knowing nothing about music, because no one at my school knows who the hell My Bloody Valentine are.

Have any of you seen Lost in Translation. "Sometimes" is used in it, and Kevin Shields does some music.


That is one of my favourite movies. I've never been as emotionally captivated by a movie as I have with Lost In Translation. Another great track off of the soundtrack is "Too Young" by Phoenix.

I wish I had the chance to see them live. It would be pretty cool if they did a reunion tour. No matter how lame reunion tours are, I would go.

I love the movie. It was so great. The relationship the Bill and Scarlett have in that movie is really amazing. Scarlett Johansson is really beautiful in that movie too.

On a side note, i've heard of a kind-of MBV-like shoegaze knockoff band from the US called Medicine. But i can't find them anywhere on the internet. anyone got any leads?

It really great. Defidently different from Loveless, a lot less concentrated force put into the songs, which isn't bad. It's is kind of an indie driven punk sound. Very interesting how the two albums are different, but do have some kind of sound that does flow through the two of them. Thanks guys.

I really enjoy Loveless, and have been a great fan of Shoegazing for a while now. Bands like Slowdive, Chapterhouse, and jesu are my new obsessions.

I first heard MBV when I was 15. I had Loveless on my mp3 player, and I listened to it while biking agaisnt the wind. I hated it.

A few months later I gave it another listen and it was great.

^ The first time when I heard them, I was in a dark room, it was winter and the music seemed to fit the mood perfectly. I loved it since my first listen.

I liked it pretty instantly.

Deerhoof was the and that I hated at first, and then came back and liked a couple months later.

Strawberry Wine off the Strawberry Wine EP is my favourite track by them-you can actually dance to it. Such metallic and sharp guitars. They are well a sexy sounding band.
Shoegaze is the ****.
MBV, Slowdive and the Jesus and Mary Chain forever and ever amen.

I've been wanting to buy that, but I can't bring myself to spend my savings.

Slowdive are good. Ride are amazing though. Buy the album 'Nowhere,' it's the second best shoegaze album, IMO.

Listening to their out-of-print EPs after getting hooked on You Made Me Realise. Good stuff, but so far nothing really grabs me as that oh-so-perfect song.
