Trivia: My Bloody Valentine

The 1981 film:

  • Dueling Movies: With the The Prowler, due to some similarities.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The film fell out of print after it's initial VHS release; the DVD did so too after it's release, as did the double feature disc that paired it with April Fools' Day. The Lions Gate DVD (which contains the uncensored cut of the film) is thankfully still in print.
  • What Could Have Been: A sequel was proposed, but ultimately declined. A treatment and/or script was apparently done for it however. Going by information that's out about it, it would have taken place in an amusement park built where the original mine killing occurred. The cut gore footage from the original was to inserted into the sequel as flashback sequences.
  • Working Title: The Secret.

The band:

  • Creator Breakdown: One of the reasons for the twenty-plus-year recording process of MBV.
  • Development Hell: As seen above, there were more than two decades in between Loveless and MBV, despite the fact that the group never officially disbanded during that time. There were long periods of silence when nothing would be heard about the album at all, and Kevin abandoned it for several years, but for most of the rest of that time he was working on it. The Loveless remaster also fell victim to this, albeit to a much lesser extent.
    • Kevin has said that the Isn't Anything and Loveless remasters and the EP's 1988-1991 compilation were delayed due to Executive Meddling on Sony's behalf, and having to threaten them with getting Scotland Yard involved to get them to turn over the original multitrack tapes.
  • Missing Episode: According to the "Class of '91" article in November 1991's edition of Melody Maker, the band recorded two additional EPs besides Glider and Tremolo during the Loveless sessions, but scrapped them because they didn't feel they were worth releasing.
  • Troubled Production:
    • Loveless.
    • Never mind Loveless; the twenty-year Development Hell for the third album blows that one away.
