A 41-year-old man has announced he finally gets bands like My Bloody Valentine and Ride.
Martin Bishop said that despite years of his friends listening to ‘shoegazing’ bands, he never quite understood it and did not even bother to illegally downloading any of their albums.
Bishop added: “My mate posted some tracks from Loveless by My Bloody Valentine on Facebook and I was like, ‘this is brilliant’.
“So then I listened to Polar Bear by Ride and I was like ‘this is brilliant too’. I’ve even bothered to illegally download all their albums now. It’s a big step.
“Now, if anyone asks me I’ll be like, ‘Yeah, of course I like shoegazing music, pretty much always have’.”
Bishop’s friend, Nathan Muir, said: “He’ll be saying he likes Drone Rock next, which is just nonsense.
“I don’t like Drone Rock and I’m the bass player in Godspeed You! Black Emperor.”
