My approach would be:

1) Add noise (high contrast)
2) Stretch greatly in one dimension (like 100x)
3) blur slightly and add contrast
4) slice into strips of various widths, put on separate layers, use screen mode
5) warp in various ways, including puppet tool, liquify, other distort effects
6) colorize
7) add glow
