kevin shields-joy of the guitar riff

BBC Four have aired an hour long documentary on the evolution of the rock guitar riff! ‘The Joy Of The Guitar Riff’ features “Chuck Berry through to the White Stripes… with riffs and stories from an all-star cast including Brian May, Dave Davies, Hank Marvin, Joan Jett, Nile Rodgers, Tony Iommi, Robert Fripp, Johnny Marr, Nancy Wilson, Kevin Shields, Ryan Jarman, Tom Morello and many more.” UK residents can stream the whole doco here, the rest of us will have to make do with this snippet of Kevin Shields on Youtube (which may get removed before too long)! Particularly enjoyed the comment that MBV sounds like “a mermaid falling into a black hole…”! Thanks to David Bastedo for the upload.
