"Vapour Trail, it's one of the best fifteen second intro's of all time." - Robert Smith in Beautiful Noise

Update (12-28-14): Just watched my Blu-ray copy on Friday night and it was wonderful! Even better than I had hoped for. My only very minor complaint is that it should have been longer. I could have watched a 3 hour cut of this.

If you have any interest in this type of music, or just good music in general, you will love this! Robert has 7 interview segments in it, talking about the Cocteau Twins, Jesus & Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, Ride, the press reaction, the downfall of Ride, and the movement in general.

Congratulations to Eric, Sarah, and everyone involved. And thank you for sticking with it all of these years. You did a fantastic job! And thank you for the thanks. Whatever very small part I played in helping, know that I am incredibly honored.

DVDs and Blu-rays are now available in their store.

Side note: I absolutely loved listening to Robert discuss these bands, and would love for a musicologist (or at least someone serious about, and with a great love of, music) to interview him at length about music in general. All of the bands he's loved over the decades, the songs that broke his heart, the albums he couldn't live without, just everything about music and how that shaped/shapes his own music. Seriously, I could listen to him speak about bands and songs all day. Someone please make this happen.


  1. interesting quote from robert about vapour trail ... ive been trying to place hungry ghost fr ages ... it all fits now .

    1. Son of is, isn't it?

    2. I mentioned this months ago in a comment on COF! Sheesh.

  2. i think mint car is pretty danged similar to twisterella!
    agreed- robert talking about music is the best thing ever. when i first got into the cure i loved reading his interviews- especially about music. he got me into so much of the music i listened to in junior high & high school (and that i still listen to now). and i LOVED how he got the last word in the film. perfect.
    ps: come back to us, liz fraser! ;(

  3. i grew up in oxford and saw ride many times & seeing them at the co-op hall (now the carling academy) is still in my top 5 shows of all time.

  4. The 2015 reunion of Ride (with uk dates with Nowhere and GBA Songs) will take some beautiful noises...

  6. My dvd arrived last week, but the case was cracked on the bottom. :\

  7. Got mine last week. Well worth the wait! Such a brilliant group of bands. I love how they support each other as well. And yes i'd love to hear Robert talk about music in general for day. Didn't Eric say he had a couple hours of footage of Robert?! I was really hoping for extras on the blu ray being a kickstarter. Sadly nothing. Maybe he could make the footage available online?! :)
