Just now Sigur Ros announced the lineup for their Noršur og Nišur festival and out of all the people, Kevin Shields is playing (although I wish I knew in what capacity, solo guitar, Dj-set, etc). I got curious and checked his bio on the website.

"kevin is currently finishing an all analog vinyl version of loveless and isn’t anything and is also working on material for a new my bloody valentine album to be released in 2018."

Would be nice. I'd almost have activity rather than infrequent hints. I'm still wondering why the represses have taken so long

Here we go again. Waiting for further confirmation. Don't trust this bio even though I really want to

The playlist on this page has 'Bless You' credited to Kevin Shields, is this a new track or something?

Edit:false alarm it's that band 'Kevin Shields'.

lol at choosing Touched to represent MBV. That's Colm solo, right?

Yep that's Colm's track, odd choice to represent Kevin's first solo gig!

I doubt it will be a DJ set, I remember back in the early noughties Kevin told me he tried DJing in Barcelona and couldn't do it properly. My guess is it will be something along the lines of the Coral Sea without Patti Smith. Incidentally, I will be in Wicklow tomorrow which is where Colm is from, anybody got anything they want to ask should I bump into him there? Going to check out Killiney too ;)

Whoever's responsible for that Spotify playlist didn't give a single fuck to double check the last track and whether or not it's by the mbv-Kevin Shields lol
