My Bloody Valentine Remaster Loveless, Isn't Anything

My Bloody Valentine Remaster Loveless, Isn't Anything Fifteen-odd years of near total silence, and now they just won't shut up! Fresh off news of the big reunion, the European tour, the insane All Tomorrow's Parties spectacle, and the North American visit, My Bloody Valentine are all up in our grills yet again, harping on about how their two unimpeachable classic albums-- Loveless and Isn't Anything-- will soon get the deluxe remaster treatment.

As initially reported on Wired's Blog Network and now confirmed by a Sony BMG UK rep, the only two MBV albums that matter (This Is Your Bloody Valentine was practically an EP anyway) will hit UK shops June 16 in newly remastered formats. While the Isn't Anything remaster spans only one disc, the Loveless one comes as a double-disc: the first disc remastered from both DAT (digital audio tape) and analogue tape, and the second remastered from just analogue tape. No needless bonus cuts or anything, just two gems in all their pristine, self-contained glory.

Vinyl editions of these remasters are expected to follow in the UK, and the Sony BMG rep suggests the band and label are mulling "other possible releases for later in the year." Ooh, maybe that long-rumored EP/rarities box? Or the new MBV album Kevin Shields teased us about late last year? We'll be gazing holes into our sneakers while we wait to find out.

Kevin and co. will be staring straight through to the soles of theirs as well, beginning June 20 in London.
