A groundbreaking lost classic of Indie history

Disadvantages: An acquired taste

WHO'S THIS THEN? ----------------------------- It's My Bloody Valentine. They were an experimental band from the late 80's and early 90's indie "shoegazing" scene who were very much more of a studio band than a live band. Fronted by the elusive and en ...
