By now it's pretty much accepted fact that you have a better chance of spotting unicorns grazing in your backyard than actually seeing Guns 'n Roses' Chinese Democracy on store shelves, despite the latest promises that that punchline of an album is supposed to come out in March. Fans of My Bloody Valentine are also skeptical of a follow-up to 1991's monumental Loveless, but MBV leader Kevin Shields told Britain's NME this week that the band is absolutely, definitely, unquestionably heading into the studio imminently. "I do feel that I will make another great record," he said. "We are 100 per cent going to make another My Bloody Valentine record unless we die or something," adding, "How long will that take to transpire into an actual physical record? I don't know." Death from old age could indeed claim Shields and company -- as well as fans -- before said album sees the light of day. As one response to the story on NME's website succinctly put it, "He's said all this before."
So which do you think we'll see released first: A new Guns 'n Roses album, or a new My Bloody Valentine album??
