This month Rhino Records reissued Ride’s seminal debut LP, Nowhere, along with the band’s Today Forever EP and a live concert from 1991, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Nowhere’s release. So much more than the shoegaze tag that was bestowed upon the band, Ride represented what was exciting and alive about the early ’90s English music scene. With dual guitarist/vocalists Mark Gardener and Andy Bell, bassist Steve Queralt, and drummer extraordinaire Laurence “Loz” Colbert, the band survived only three more albums, 1992’s stellar Going Blind Again, ‘94’s Carnival of Light, and their last stand, ‘96’s Tarantula. The band never reached the same heights in the U.S. as they did in Britain, but Ride’s sound remains as vital today as it was 20 years ago and Nowhere is ripe for re-exploration. To commemorate 20 years, Gardener took some time from his current studio and soundtrack work to speak with Under the Radar about his band’s milestone.

I love Ride.
Andy Bell, move your lazy ass out of Beady Eye back to Ride!
"drummer extraordinaire" <3 Love you, Loz…
Ride - Vapour trail
How can Andy Bell continue making ok/bad music with Beady Eye if he could do this instead?!
Or “Leave Them All Behind”…
the way your hair hangs down it hides away your face, for you it’s perfect but it seems like such a waste
