(Ride - A wall of magnificent noise)

1991 tonight. Ride, live at The Town and Country in London via the BBC. Ride were one of those bands who, along with Blur, The Charlatans, The Stone Roses and many others epitomized the resurgence in British music of the early 90s. Although they never really caught on in the States, Ride were a milestone group in achieving that all-encompassing wall of sound that was influential in other bands from the same period and even today. They had perfected it. This particular concert has most all their early material, just prior to their first album and for me, it was a pivotal point in their development as a band. Although they changed personnel and direction after a while, it's this period of the band that has always stayed with me as their best and most adventuresome. Listening to this concert again after almost twenty years, (oh god . . .it's been THAT long ago?) I realize just how powerful they were and how fresh it still sounds.

There are some things that just never seem old to me - Ride in 1991 is one of them.
