My Bloody Valentine - Live In Japan 1991

With the exellent news that My Bloody Valentine will be returning next year with some live shows and apparently a brand new album (and it really does appear to be happening this time) I thought it would be good to remind ourselves how good they really were. There seems to be two types of My Bloody Valentine fan, those who prefer "Isn't Anything" and the sound around 1989 and those who believe "Loveless" was their defining moment. I'm definately in the latter category and remember being totally overawed by the band around 1990/91, well I was only a spotty seventeen year old and I had never heard anything like it. My only concern about the band re-forming is that if there is a new album it's going to be hyped up to hell and peoples expectations are going to be far more than any record could ever deliver, still be nice to see them back on stage again. I'm sure the sound will be fantastic.

This is a bootleg recorded in Osaka, Japan in November 1991 as part of the Loveless tour. The sound although not perfect is pretty good. I'm sure if the band can play like this then no-one will be dissapointed.

1. When You Sleep
2. Only Shallow
3. I Only Said
4. Slow
5. Nothing Much To Lose
6. Come In Alone
7. You Never Should

1. Cosmicdust - Meditation (CD-R) This is probably my favorite album at the moment. It’s been getting some serious hammer on the i-pod all week. “Snow Noise Assemblage” is the title and you’re life is incomplete without it, unfortunately it seems quite tricky to find. I’ll try to find out if there are any plans afoot to re-issue it in any form and if not I may well post the entier album here.
2. The High Violets - Cool Green (Reverb) From the album “To Where You Are”. buy here) The High Violets will be releasing a remix album in November through Reverb Records which will feature remixes of tracks from both “To Where You Are” and their previous album “44 Down”.

Grouper - Cover The Windows & The Walls

Download Here
This is the latest album by Portland's favorite daughter Liz Harris and her rather wonderful Grouper. It was only released a couple of months ago but thanks to there only been a few hundred copies, all of which on lovely vinyl it is already almost impossible to find.

This is actually the third Grouper album and as far as I'm concerned the best by far.

I've ripped these files directly from the vinyl and there is a little bit of surface noise at times (the pressing, not my lack of care) but Personally I think it just adds to the atmosphere.

1. Cover The Windows and The Walls
2. Opened Space
3. Down To The Ocean
4. Heart Current
5. It Feels Alright
6. You Never Came
7. Follow In Our Dreams

4. Grouper - Heart Current (Root Strata) As promised last week here’s a track from the latest Grouper Offering “Cover The Windows & The Walls”.

6. Epic 45 - The Stars In Spring (Make Mine Music) Taken from the album “May Your Heart Be The Map”. Buy Here

8. Elika - You’re Not Safe At All () Taken from the album “Elika” Buy Here
9. Screen Vinyl Image - The Midnight Sun (Safranin Sound) Taken from "The Midnight Sun" ep. Buy Here
