Ride

With their first records, Ride created a unique wall of sound that relied on massive, trembling distortion in the vein of My Bloody Valentine butwith a simpler, more direct melodic approach.

With their first records, Ride created a unique wall of sound that relied on massive, trembling distortion in the vein of My Bloody Valentine butwith a simpler, more direct melodic approach. The shatteringly loud, droning neo-psychedelia the band performed was dubbed shoegazing by theBritish press because the bandmembers stared at the stage while they performed. Along with their initial influence, My Bloody Valentine, Ridestood apart from the shoegazing pack, primarily because of their keen sense of songcraft and dynamics. For a while, the band was proclaimedthe last great hope of British rock, but they fell from the spotlight nearly as quickly as they entered it.

Ride were formed in Oxfordshire, England, in 1988 by guitarist/vocalist Andy Bell, vocalist/guitarist Mark Gardener, bassist Stephan Queralt,and drummer Loz Colbert when the group was still in its late teens. The band soon earned a dedicated following through their blisteringly loud,intense live shows.
