and 'shoegaze' in general (if you consider that a genre)

Who loves 'em? What other shoegaze bands should I be listening to? I have really been digging MBV and need to find more music like it.

To make this more than just an average MBV thread. whats the best live bootleg youve got from them ? I got this one from Vancouver in 1992 on the Loveless tour and its fucking amazing with an 18 minute long "you made me realise" with a huge ass noise section in it. It was recorded straight from the soundboard too so i can hear it pretty well.

But you're far more interesting, in my opinion.

I'm a shoegazing fan, My Bloody Valentine is my second favorite band (first is Sonic Youth, of course). You should listen to Slowdive, they're really amazing, my favorite shoegaze band except MBV ; their Souvlaki album is absolutely fantastic. Chapterhouse are really good too, Ride or Boo Radleys also.

this is a "genre" where the good albums and bands are so well defined you only need to google shoegazer and get the list of loveless, souvlaki, nowhere, etc.

let's make it interesting; how much does shoegazer "revivalists" like m83 and serena maneesh suck in comparison of the originals?

shoegazer as a genre was stupid. my bloody valentine remain one of my favourite bands, and loveless will always be near the top of my playlist. the other shoegazer bands however, were crap copycats who aped MBV's aesthetics and style, whilst creating music that was infinitely more dull. The 'revivalists' in my mind are far more interesting, as they aknowledge MBV's basic format (catchy tunes hidden beneath layered, intense instrumentation) without shamelessly imitating it.

In that revival I love Amusement Parks on Fire, M83 and Daydream Nation the most (even if I think M83 isn't shoegaze that much)

amusement parks on fire are good, but they seem more like a foo fighters kind band, except with more sheen on the guitars than the more distorted ff sound.

let's open a can of worms: are the jesus and mary chain, spacemen 3 or loop shoegazer?

amusement parks on fire are wicked! their new stuff is shows far less shoegazer stylings, but the earlier work, and especially early live shows which i saw were amazingly intense, deafeningly loud and layered, with swathes of noise. really quality. recently their live shows have been far more laid back, and nowhere near as loud. i still rate them tho. good on em for bringing respect to the nottingham music scene!

Yeah, their last album is very good too but less shoegazer ; even if it has always some caracteristics of the style. The band is finding his sound

I love JAMC and MBV, but generally not the rest of the genre from what I've heard. I do not pursue shoegazer bands, so I would say I dislike it.

MBV is my favorite Shoegaze band.

I also like Lush, and Slowdive. Loop is considered to be a Shoegaze band, but Spacemen 3 are not, they're labeled as Space Rock.
