Vocalist
    (May 21, 1963- )
    Raised in Dublin, Ireland
    Resides in London, England
    Vocalist/Guitarist/Mastermind of My Bloody Valentine
    My Bloody Valentine albums are 'Isn't Anything' (1988) and 'Loveless' (1991)
    Solo work includes contributions to the 'Lost In Translation' soundtrack (2003)
    He smokes cigarettes and lots of pot.
    As a teen in Dublin, he briefly joined a gang.
    Mostly due to chronic procrastination, he hasn't released a full-length recording since 1991.
    He has shelved a lot of recordings, since he wasn't satisfied with them.
    The recording of 'Loveless' had caused the band's label, Creation Records, to go temporarily bankrupt. Creation then dropped My Bloody Valentine immediately afterwards.
    He once cited 'mental illness' as a reason why he wasn't putting out any new material.
    Other members of My Bloody Valentine left to pursue other interests, since he had been so inactive.
    He is dyslexic.
    He has a genetic skin condition.
    He has studied martial arts.
    Since its release, 'Loveless' has been praised for it's unique blend of strong song writing with a noisy, yet dreamy and surreal sound.
    His 'glide guitar' sound is a major influence on underground/indie rock since the late 80s.
    The band PS I Love You recorded 'Where the Fuck is Kevin Shields?'
    He was nominated for BAFTA (The British Academy Awards) in 2004 for his contributions to the 'Lost In Translation' soundtrack.
