My Bloody Valentine. Loom. Vancouver. 7/1/92.

Amazing facts about My Bloody Valentine:
  • Since its release in 1991, Loveless has been played on a continuous loop through underwater speakers, inspiring certain erotic feelings in cetaceans, and is single-handedly responsible for the resurgence of the Humpback Whale population
  • Before being mastered, the original tracks were beamed into space, bounced off the rings of Saturn, and then filtered through a device that mimics the sound of dragonflies on absinthe.
  • Loveless sounds the same in every known alternate universe.
  • Early copies of the album came with packets of Dramamine to counteract wooziness.
  • Not that I would know, but under certain influences you can actually listen to the album just by looking at the cover.
  • The band was named after an unsuccessful Bing Crosby Christmas special.
  • At least one track was created by dropping magnetic recording tape through the Aurora Borealis.
  • Vinyl copies of Loveless actually contain minute trace amounts of love, Pixie Stix, and Kevin Shields’ pocket lint.
