Even Louder: Shoegaze pioneers My Bloody Valentine to re-issue back-catalogue on vinyl


It appears My Bloody Valentine will be making a return to turntables around the world. Creation Records, the shoegaze band’s late-’80s label, relayed word today that the band has been plotting a vinyl re-issue of their entire back catalogue, including 1988 debut Isn’t Everything and 1991’s legendary Loveless LP.

It’s not clear which albums, EPs, or other releases will be included in the vinyl re-boot, or when we can expect them in digital stores or brick-and-mortar shelves. But Creation relayed a few images from this summer that show mastering engineer Sean Magee and My Bloody Valentine’s Kevin Shields busy in the studio cutting titles directly from the master.

Back in 2012, Sony re-issued My Bloody Valentine’s back-catalogue on compact disc; as the Vinyl Factory notes, the band has yet to dip into the vinyl re-issue waters. So this is exciting news.


More from Creation Records:

“Four years after the reissue on CD it seems My Bloody Valentine’s back catalogue is finally coming out again on vinyl.

Kevin Shields has promised for many years the albums will see a vinyl repress and with him working with the old analogue recordings things must finally be in progress. He is seen remastering and cutting the recordings at Abbey Road studios alongside mastering engineer Sean Magee below.

There’s never been an official repress of their back catalogue on vinyl since their original release, so for those who want to own these but don’t want to pay £100 plus for a second-hand copy this will be good news.”

More to come, for sure. Check out the tweets below.
