No I dont think it was really the acoustics that made MBV sound awful. They simply were awful – under rehearsed (if at all) and overpraised by pseudish hacks to the point where they believed their own hype and just made a appalling noise and called it art.
As you may gather, Im not a fan šŸ˜‰

Did you like their studio stuff? i never saw them live so i can’t comment on how they sounded, but i love _Loveless_. its weird, lately i’ve been hearing/reading a bunch of people trashing MBV, saying that Loveless sucked, they were overhyped, etc. i can respect your opinion, but yer about 10 years too late!! i still think their studio stuff was great, especially for that time. same for Sonic Youth. but, i like lots of noise.
