Fresh from the clogged tubes of teh intarwubs…

  1. Kevin Shields interviewed

    "What happened in ‘88 was that something kind of grabbed me by the scruff of the neck and I knew the way everything had to be. During the Loveless process, I was completely under the spell of that. I had no choice but to do it and there was no other way to do it. Do you know what I mean? It just had to be just like that. And that’s it. I didn’t care what anyone else said. There was zero outside influence in that respect, because only I knew what I had to do … And for me, opinions of other people are important, but not above actually realizing something the way that it was supposed to be. It was just like a feeling, a mood – I was in a certain state or frame of mind. I always knew what was right. If you allow yourself to really go in a certain direction, without any outside influences, then it has a purity to it. In a way, it never gets diluted. "
