Louder than war

In honour of the news that Kevin Shields has finally finished the long-promised remasters of Loveless, Isn't Anything and the early EPs (though no new album as yet, naturally...), here's the video for 'You Made Me Realise', which is as beautiful as ear-crunching noise ever gets.  The eruption of nerve-jangling atonalism at around the 1:45 mark can, apparently, get stretched out for 25 minutes during the live set.  There have been reports of stopped clocks, bleeding ears and worse amongst the audiences.  They're an inspiration for my own reading style at open mic nights.  Enjoy, pop-pickers.
