This is a band from my area, sadly I believe they are on hiatus at the moment but they rule. http://centerofthesun.bandcamp.com/album/machine-gun

Also Weekend and Merchandise have been on my shoegaze playlist as of late.
The answer is Dutch Masters, you fat fucking catastrophe.

This band is good. They're from your area? Track them down, make them re-form, and make them play a show in SF.  =)

Had the amazing opportunity to fly to Manchester and see My Bloody Valentine there. Was so incredibly loud indoors, people who didn't know what to expect for when they play the holocaust section for 'you made me realise' were sooo bummed. A security guard said it was the worst noise he'd ever heard.

Luckily got to see them again in Barcelona at Primavera Sound recently, was in the 1st row right in front of Kevin shields. I can check that one off my bucket list. My favorite band of all time.

Saw a bit of MBV yesterday at FYF fest in LA.  Huge crowd so I didn't even bother trying to push forward.  Me and the crew left after technical difficulties (we were tired as shit).  But otherwise great live sound, outdoor at that.  It was great hearing songs from loveless

Aw man, you should've stuck around. The rest of the set was rad. Such glorious noise on You Made Me Realise!

If it was my call, I probably would have.  In any case, it's one of those bands I gotta sit in the front for at a single show, so I'll get to see a full set eventually ;D.  I was perfectly fine seeing someone like YYY from the back though.

I didn't stick around for them unfortunately. It was so fucking crowded on Saturday, I was just over it. I don't like festivals in the first place, and that day was just stupid crowded.

I've been lurking on this forum for years and never clicked on the music tab til today. Such a huge Shoegaze fan and theres a ton of bands in this thread I've never heard and can't wait to check out. Glad to see people still talking about the Boo Radleys...Giant Steps and Everything's alright forever are classics for sure.

Though not 100% shoegaze, Diiv and Wild Nothing are the 2 bands I've been listening to the most over the last year and a half. My girl is in Brooklyn for the Captured Tracks festival this weekend and I'm hating that I'm not there.

I caught a few of their songs at FYF, but wasn't too worried as I knew I would get to see them in SF on Monday. They played Great American for like two hours and it was fucking awesome...and I'm from Atlanta and used to see them all the time, so that's saying something. Bradford fucking around with Frankie Broyles was hilarious.

I heard the Bill Graham MBV show wasn't great?

I saw DH from the beer tent, great stuff.  Bradford was indeed pretty funny during the Breeders set  :D

Damn, so I guess they're gonna be giving out ear plugs at every gig MBV plays out?

I haven't been to a festival in years, and the guys I went with were pretty much on the same boat as me.  After Sunday we all agreed we hate festivals haha

Seeing them live, it's very reminiscent of MBV's live shoes. I do agree that not all of their music fits neatly into traditional shoegaze, but it's the feel and overall aesthetic.

They are one of my favorites.

After seeing MBV twice, once at a huge outdoor festival and once at a medium size indoor venue, I have to say that they're probably better outdoors. Seems ridiculous to say but the reverberation from all that sound bouncing off the walls tends to muddy things quite a bit.

Anyway, here's a shoegazey video for y'all. One of my favourite bands. Apparently all the sounds are made with nothing but guitars and effects.
