I know there's quite a few shoegaze fans on these boards, so thought I'd stick this up here (thanks DiS for eating my last OP).
What sounds like a fairly exhaustive/extensive project seems to have taken in all of the major players of the scene, in addition to a bunch of famous faces from the era not necessarily normally associated with shoegaze (Robert Smith, Billy Corgan, Trent Reznor). The creators are looking for funding from Kickstarter donations to get the the finished project out there. Link below:
