We Need Nothing More


As far as I’m aware, since they delivered Loveless in 1991, My Bloody Valentine have recorded only two songs- one was a cover of a Wire song Map Ref 41n 93w (posted here some time ago) and the other was this cover version of Louis Armstrong’s Bond theme We Have All The Time In The World. This is very swirly and dreamy and has Bilinda Butcher’s vocals to the fore (by MBV’s standards) but it’s also a pretty straight cover with Kevin Shields keeping the melody and strings intact. It hasn’t got that totally disorientating, weightless, headswimming effect that Loveless or Isn’t Anything had. Well worth a listen as a starter, especially if you stick Soon on afterwards for the main course.
