MBV are amazing. One of my favourite bands. Kevin Shields & co are pure geniouses.

I still need some eps i think im missing 3-4 of them.

A world apart. Urban Hymns is a Britpop album. A Storm in Heaven is awesomely spacy and shoegaze-y. The Verve EP is even spacier, but it is only an EP

On MBV, though... man, I'd love to know what Kevin Shields used on Loveless. I don't know anyone who creates such an awesome wash of noise. It's fascinating just to zone out and listen to all the nuances and dynamics he's creating...

I want a Jazzmaster.

he used liek a billion dollars ;_;


there are a few sites explaining how to link up the FX pedals on how to get a good shoegazzy sound, delay reverb chorus and distortion are some you must have!

I believe most of the sound is post production (on Loveless.)

Haha, I have one! Kevin used a Jag more.

Heres a post from the MBV forum from Kevins former roadie telling what he used:

\"Kevin never used a Shreadmaster pedal (he did, however, use 2 Marshall Guv\'nor pedals during the Isn\'t Anyting live shows). (guitargeek.com falsely credits the use of a Shredmaster during the Loveless tours.)

For Loveless live shows he used - Digitec Whammy, Boss EH-2, Boss PQ-4, 2 x Boss GE-7, Boss T-Wah, Pro-Co Turbo Rat, Roger Mayer Axis & Mongoose, Marshall Guv\'nor, Jim Dunlop Roto-Vibe, Boss Tremolo/Pan (Boss PN-2 to be specific), Digitec PDS-8000, ADA Pre-amp, MidiVerb2 (made by Alesis for those who don\'t know), SPX90 x 2 and 3 x JCM800\'s (only 2 amps were actually running) JCM\'s valved with EL34\'s and ECC83\'s (including phase split). - I may have missed out one or two pedals there....it has been a few years..!!!

The clever part is what he adds to the internal wiring to the guitars and the reasoning behind using certain guitars for certain songs. (This is the only time I have ever heard this mentioned, and unfortunately he never elaborated on it.)\"


Quote from Kevin

\"As for effects, says Kevin, \"There\'s no chorusing or anything like that. But there\'s one very definite effect that I do use, and that\'s reverse reverb, mostly on a Yamaha SPX90. It inverts a normal reverb envelope without making the notes backwards. There are certain settings I use that, along with the way I have the tone of the guitar set up, create a totally melted sort of liquid sound. I don\'t use any of the original, dry guitar signal; it\'s purely the reverb. When I use that sort of effect on guitar, that means there\'s one guitar on the track. A song like \'Soon\' has got three guitars. But the bulk of the sound is just from one guitar.\"

That's some pretty cool info there ZoSo. Cheers.

I thought it was Belinda who usually used the Jags, though. I always heard Kevin used them and Jazzmasters equally.

I wish I could emulate Kevin's sound of the guitar.

The man's literally a genius and is definitely one of my favorite guitarists. And now, I seriously want a Jazzmaster.

I bought "Isn't Anything" a while ago, and I really like that album. I hope they get back together and even do a reunion tour. That would make my decade.

Yeah, Belinda used a pink Ibanez styled guitar, a red/red guard Jazzmaster and a Sunburst Jazzmaster. Kevin used Jags live more often.


Hey look, I beat you all!!!



(Sorry, bad picture, its sunburst)

Oh I just noticed that the trem bar isn\\\'t on... Thats cause I broke the system!!! I need to get a US version of the trem tailpiece. Constantly shaking the trem is the way to getting the sound. Their sound live is way easier to emulate, Proco Turbo Rat into Shredmaster for gain....

Yeah, with all those effects, does it really matter what guitar you're using?

To be more accurate, I want Kevin Shield's guitar pedals.

Eh, I always thought Sometimes was one of the middle songs on Loveless (not one of the best but not one of the worst.)

the Rat is great, you can get crispy distortion and warm fuzz from it.

I guess you can have MBV but you need another gain pedal, I use my amps gain, it's not a very good sound though

So did anyone have any trouble finding the EPs? Once I get a new job I have to go hunting for Tremolo, Glider, You Made Me Realise and Ecstasy & Wine.
