Who started this thread again?See what happens?

MBV are amazing. Except every time I've mentioned them to some random person, they expect them to be an "emo" band, based on the name.

I like MBV. Only got Loveless yet, but I think it's awsome. You should check out Serena Maneesh if you are in search for more shoegaze, nobody have metioned them, but they are really good. Check em' out: http://www.serena-maneesh.com/news.php

You dont like Serena Maneesh? Well, you should have seen them live, I'm sure you would have a different opinion.

m83 were far better before the newest album came out, that was a bit crap. still, dead cities red seas and whatever it was called was an astounding album, and run into flowers a fantastic song.

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.

Fox is dead on. 'Souvlaki' is one hell of an album. If you don't have any Slowdive in your collection, do yourself and favor and pick up something soon. You will not be disappointed! Saying this however - personally - I've never lumped Slowdive into the Shoe Gaze category. Fox isn't off base at all by recommending them as several people connect them with the MBV Gaze genre. 'Souvlaki' is a classic just as 'Loveless' is and they should not be lumped into "categories."

The closest thing that I've found to 'Loveless' is an EP by the band, Schroeder's Cat. Far as I know, it's the only thing they've ever released. It came out back in 1998 on Emperor Norton Records: www.emperornorton.com

The Pastels Music Remixed album has a nice dose of gaze on it. There are two MBV mixes along with mixes by Stereolab, John McEntire, Jim O'Rourke and many others. Interol has a nice gaze sound as does groups like: Stella Luna, Astral, thebrotherkite, Air Formation and a few others.

wow i had never heard anyone compare m83 to mbv. that doesn't even make sense because they are so different and MBV is so much greater. i prefer loveless to isn't anything because it gives a certain flow to the music when you can't understand what they are saying

actually in a way i think giant drag are a poppish version of MBV, and this sentence marks the start of my rep's fall.

edit:i do love MBV,but i do not listen to tham that much,this is the reason why i never got into the "shoegaze" genre,but loveless is a great album,and actually isn't anything could be my fav,it "sounds" better in my ears/brain.

does that not make the term "shoegazer" semi-innappropriate. i know "shoegazer as a genre for sound, but i think to a certain degree the band should have stage-fright.

It's too bad MBV broke up. They were one of my favorite bands for a time. (Still are, really). They had such a great, unique sound. Soft, melodic pop surrounded by droning noise and feedback. Utter genius.

Umm. Technically they haven't broken up. They just haven't done anything.

Does that mean k-krack, that every band that you put in the shoegazer-category should suck live? Well okay then, if that does not make Serena Maneesh a "proper" shoegaze band, I really don't care. What matters to me is that they put on a great fucking show live.

It was a joke. Get it? Shoe gaze? Like they stare at their shoes and are real nervous.
