I've written here before on Leave Them All Behind by Ride being my favourite ever song. Ride's album Nowhere remains the best debut LP I've heard.
To mark the 20th anniversary of their first EP, there's a nice article and interview with the band members in the latest edition of Nightshift - a free monthly Oxford music magazine. You can download the magazine as a pdf from Nightshift (click the January 2010 edition) but if that link ever dies I've archived the pdf here.
Ride didn't just change Oxford music forever. They impacted on my life and many others around that time.
The article is a good read for fans of the band but as a spoiler here's the last paragraph which addresses the nostalgic question we all want to ask.
