About Time: A Documentary on Shoegaze

Shoegaze has always had its detractors.  I, however, am not one of them.  I love loud, floaty, fuzzy bands like My Bloody Valentine, Ride, Lush and the Jesus and Mary Chain.  

There’s a new documentary on the subject called Beautiful Noise by director Eric Green.  It’s finished, but its worldwide release still needs to be financed.  Watch the trailer and then have a look at their Kickstarter page.

Alan Cross

is an internationally known broadcaster, interviewer, writer, consultant, blogger and speaker. In his 30+ years in the music business, Alan has interviewed the biggest names in rock, from David Bowie and U2 to Pearl Jam and the Foo Fighters. He’s also known as a musicologist and documentarian through programs like The Ongoing History of New Music.

    I still regularly listen to Lush. Their sound is so timeless even after nearly 2 decades. I'm glad this film is being made. I'll fund the kickstarter project if they had a reward tier "Tea with Miki Berenyi".

    For those looking for a sound similar to Lush (Split-era), check out the band Asobi Seksu.
