Beautiful Noise, a kickstarter-funded documentary that traces the development of Shoegaze music through its top practitioners including My Bloody Valentine, the Jesus and Mary Chain and the Cocteau Twins, will get its premiere at the end of the month.
The film will screen on May 31st and June 1st at the Seattle International Film Festival. Under the familiar tagline “They didn’t sell a lot of records, but everyone who heard them started a band,” Beautiful Noise features interviews with My Bloody Valentine’s Kevin Shields, Jim Reid from the Jesus and Mary Chain and Cocteau Twins’ Robin Guthrie and Simon Raymonde, along with members of Ride, Slowdive, Lush, Catherine Wheel and Boo Radleys. There’s also commentary from Wayne Coyne, Billy Corgan, Robert Smith and Trent Reznor, along with bootlegs and ‘previously unseen personal videos.’
