My Bloody Valentine to Reunite?!

Could it be that the one of the greatest bands in the history of recorded music is lining up not only a tour (that would include a headlining spot at Coachella in 2008), but also an album of new material, their first in 17 years!!! This almost too good to be true news has been reported by the NME, Billboard and others, but this is also a band that the phrase "I'll believe it when I see it" seems to have been coined for. It is supposedly not about the money, but Coachella is definitely known for throwing extravagant amounts of money at bands for reunions (remember that $5 million dollar Smiths offer?), so it certainly seems like a possibility. I'll tell you what though, just the possibility of hearing "Only Shallow" (or any of Loveless for that matter) live and in person is enough to get this weary music geek all pumped up.
