A Rare Interview With Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine


Kevin Shields, visionary behind My Bloody Valentine, is famously (infamously?) elusive.

He rarely gives interviews. So when he talks, you’re goddamn right we listen. Fender recently sat down with Shields at his home studio in Ireland for a two-part series all about his Jazzmaster collection (he’s lost count of how many he actually owns), MBV’s origins and iconic sound, and much, much more. Crank Loveless and get some insight into one of our favourite musicians ever. Part one above, part 2 below. Do the right thing.
