NME reports that My Bloody Valentine frontman Kevin Shields has started a record label, called Pickpocket, with Charlotte Marionneau of the London band Le Volume Courbe. The first release, out November 14, is Le Volume Courbe’s Theodaurus Rex EP.
Shields told NME that the EP was originally prepped for release on a different label. “I was like, ‘I’ll just get rid of a few pedals that I’ve had lying around for ten years and we’ll start a label,'” he said. NME also reports that Shields has been recording a 10-minute noise track. “We thought we could put it out as a 10-inch,” Marionneau said.
NME reports that the label does not plan to release new music by My Bloody Valentine. Sigh.
