But you don't ramble pointlessly for 10 minutes before One.

And in, what, 48 or so years on this planet, I don't think Bono has once had a good haircut.

I do ramble aimlessly on occasion

Now, I've never had a good haircut and I ramble all the fucking time, but at least I never had a mullet.

Yeah, I downloaded Mezcal Head. I could upload it for you if you like. I've really enjoyed it, just a couple of tracks to go now. It isn't really that shoegazey in comparison to other stuff I know, but still rather good.

I'll track down some Telescopes then. I really badly want more shoegaze, so I'm open to any recommendations.

Incidentally, I've never understood why Loveless is worshipped as the ultimate shoegazer album. Nowhere fucking destroys it on every level.
Oh, if you could upload it that'd be awesome. I need something good to listen to and analyse tonight.

Loveless took ages to grow on me. For a long time the only songs I really liked were Sometimes and When You Sleep. Then I started liking I Only Said and Soon... and Only Shallow, and then the rest of the album opened up. I think it's a very complete album, in fact I think it's more of a single song than 11 tracks. I treat it very differently to Nowhere, and like both of them sort of equally, but in different ways. Mainly, I just love that those sounds could come out of a guitar! Shoegaze in all of its forms was so important in the early 90s - whereas most other rock groups were doing the same old shit in that time, rehashing the 70s and late 60s mainly, the shoegazer movement was incredibly fresh in comparison.

Of course, now a lot of bands today are rehashing shoegaze sounds from that period. The circle of life lives on!

Do you like Catherine Wheel? They had the heavier sound going.
