BEAUTIFUL NOISE is an in-depth exploration of a music movement in the late twentieth century, a fascinating period when some innovative musicians mixed guitar noise into conventional pop song structures while maintaining a philosophy of letting the music speak for itself. Although many of the people interviewed are notoriously press shy they have opened up about their music and experiences from over 20 years ago, how they defied the rules and became sonic innovators that have inspired so many.

This is a Kickstarter project that should have had a) good camera and microphone work and b) great editing. Sadly, it doesn't have that, nor have the producers seemingly used a storyboard, but bar those defects, this documentary is very much needed: these bands have gone down in history for all the right reasons. Where punk fizzled out into the mainstream - NO thanks, The Police - and pop seemed too...pop, people like the Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine turned the rock landscape on its head by going all early-1900s-modernist-goes-electric on us. And it's good.
