Britpop Conspiracy: Guardian Interview with MBV’s Kevin Shields

This interview with My Bloody Valentine’s Kevin Shields is worth a read even without the conspiracy theory that Britpop was pushed by the Labour Government in the mid-90’s (ha!).

‘But when it is jokingly suggested that, had Shields released m b v in 1994, as initially planned, he could have kiboshed Britpop, his mood changes. “Britpop was massively pushed by the government,” he says. “Someday it would be interesting to read all the MI5 files on Britpop. The wool was pulled right over everyone’s eyes there.”

However, this interview by Ian SvenoniusĀ of Nation of Ulysses and The Make-Up over at Vice is probably more fun, though:
