Last thing I heard - about 3 or 4 months ago - was that he was definitely ploughing on with it, and had just taken on a new engineer..........

Good idea to start this thread.

Last I heard (a couple of months ago) was Kevin was meeting up with Colm to re-record the drums on several of the tracks, as the original drum tracks were sounding too electronic...

There's a track that Kevin describes as 'like a plane taking off' and definitley a drum and bass track.

They were also in discussions to play live sometime with two other bands (as in a triple bill).

This came directly from a meeting between my old friend and Kevin Shields.

Who did you speak to in the band and how come you've just joined this forum, dodle1?

That's pretty exclusive news...

People here are quick to doubt.

When did everybody suddenly become chums with My Bloody Valentine? You mean to say we have INSIDER KNOWLEDGE ??

THKW, was this that information you teased us about months ago but promised to withhold? If so, why spillthebeanz now? You just delayed Kevin another 14 years, I bet.

waiting? for how long?
 :)

Personally, I'm not looking forward to new MBV album. Album, tour... all that sounds impossible.
But I'd be happy with remastered EP collection, in a shiny package, yes
well there once were two cowboys all alone out on the trail

It's most of the info I got minus the part that I was asked not to post.
I've always been honest about the fact that I have a friend in the music industry who knows Kevin, who reads this forum from time to time and who always updates me after his meetings with him. I feel I've left it long enough now, and as dodle1 has started up a legitimate thread (here and this forum has become extremely quiet and rather stale recently), I thought now was a good time to post. It is happening folks, albeit at a glacial pace!

Ah, I see!
I'm sure she'll do a lovely job of the vocals. Have you got any idea how many of the 11 tracks she is singing on?

A simple, honest post from someone new to this forum who wants to share it.  :)

Don't be sad. It's a good thread. We needed one.
