Feel the Noise: The Music that Shaped Britain provides a definitive account of the key musical and cultural explosions which have rocked Britain through the decades – packed with revelation and insight from the people who know them better than anyone… because they were there.

From Psychedelia to Glam Rock; Punk to Acid House; 80’s synth pop to 90’s Britpop, the documentary captures what it was like to bear witness to each of those special eras, and the dramatic impact they had on Britain.

Feel the Noise features some of the biggest names in British music, fashion, politics and culture over the past few decades, with contributions from Johnny Marr, Twiggy, Cliff Richard, Joan Armatrading. It did make you reflect on the current state of music. Marr recalled his discovery of T.Rex: “When I heard it I wondered why the traffic hadn’t stopped. It was like an atomic bomb going off.” Listen to a selection of T.Rex tracks on this playlist including Metal Guru.
