United States / 87 min. / 2014 / English


 

A master class on noise guitar. All the groups great and small (Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Ride, Slowdive...) explained with patience and profoundness. Trent Reznor, Robert Smith and Billy Corgan join the analysis. 

 

Group by group, without omitting a solitary detail, record or song, Beautiful Noise analyses the trembling noise scene. It's a thoroughlydemocratic film: all the groups, great and small have a place here. Itcharters the Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine and The Jesus & MaryChain, but also covers Ride, Slowdive, Swervedriver, Chapterhouse andPale Saints with affection and perseverance. The flashbacks to the eraare succulent: Jim Reid and Kevin Shields reveal the secrets to theirsuccess and the essence of their lyrics.Passers-by, fans and currentgroups also get their say: Robert Smith (The Cure), Billy Corgan (TheSmashing Pumpkins), Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), Seefeel and JohnPeel re-examine the impressionist, ethereal sound of all those bands,as well as their resulting implosion: the brush-off from the press andthe final acceptance of the fact, that for all they desired success,the majority of these groups didn't fit into the industry. A mighty film in scope and ambition. And all that romantic feedback.
