Mailing List – Reunion October 2001

Below is an email sent out to all subscribers of the band's mailing list when the band briefly reunited in 2001 for a tv show. yesterday's moment of surreality So yesterday at the John Henry rehearsal complex in North London, Andy, Mark, Steve and Loz all turned up, set-up, plugged-in and put together about an hour's worth of un-rehearsed sonic jamming to accompany the forthcoming series of Channel 4's Pioneers. The show is about the influence of Sonic Youth and is effectively "presented" by Andy and Mark. They talk about Sonic Youth's influence generally to 90's music and specifically the influence on the then-fledgling Ride. As part of the idea for the show, the producer had asked Mark and Andy to play 10-15 minutes of guitar-based feedback which they wanted to film and use as a backdrop to the programme. It was Andy's idea that if he and Mark were going to get together to talk about Sonic Youth's influence on Ride then any "performance" to accompany the programme should feature all 4 ex-Ride members. Mark flew in from France for the day, Andy delayed his return to Sweden after the Oasis tour for a day and both Loz and Steve managed to juggle their existing commitments to make way for the day's filming. Everyone arrived about 11 and everything was set-up and ready to roll about Midday. Once the TV people had sorted their sound and camera positions out, the band started to work on a loose jam that they'd put together on the spot. It was a simple recording - one stereo mic for the drums, one bass mic and one each for Andy's and Mark's guitars. No vocals. It was truly amazing how quickly the whole sound slotted into place, that old adage about riding a bicycle was never more appropriate. There was a break while the sound levels and the overall mix were checked: and also while the lighting team sorted out their part of the equation. After a spot of lunch the band started playing about 1:30 with the cameras and the tape rolling until it came to it's natural conclusion about 2:15. Mark and Andy then filmed the interview and they all packed up and went their separate ways - Mark and Andy off to Heathrow for their respective flights, Steve back to Oxford and Loz back across London. It was very strange to witness how natural the whole event was and also how enjoyable and inspirational it was too. They talked about whether to base the jam on perhaps Grasshopper or even the middle section of Drive Blind but in the end a completely new piece of music came out of the day. There will some snaps of the day and maybe some camcorder footage up on the Ride site in the next couple of weeks or so - don't touch that dial.

Charm Assault single

First new song released since 1996. Press statement states: ""Charm Assault" is taken from Ride's forthcoming album, due to be released Summer 2017 on Wichita Recordings. The album was produced by Erol Alkan and mixed by the band's longtime collaborator, Alan Moulder. Andy Bell says “Charm Assault is a pretty straightforward expression of frustration and disgust at the people who currently run our country. The tour in 2015 was a good way of reminding us what we were good at in the first place and Charm Assault feels like a natural continuation from our peak. When we started writing together again we tried to imagine we'd kept on making music all this time, and this was just the latest one.” An alternative sleeve (see below) was added to download sites on 18th May 2017.

Vapour Trail remixes
Robert Smith remixes Vapour Trail

Robert Smith of The Cure has remixed Vapour Trail as part of the Nowhere 25th anniversary celebrations. Today the band sent out the latest edition of the 'Tomorrow Never Knows' newsletter and it states the following: "We've been trying our best to keep tight-lipped about this until today, but we're very happy to have premiered this evening a remix of 'Vapour Trail' by none other than Robert Smith simultaneously on Steve Lamacq's BBC 6music show in the UK, Jason Bentley's Morning Becomes Eclectic show on KCRW in Los Angeles, and online through Pitchfork. Robert has spoken many kind words about us over the years and about 'Vapour Trail' in particular; so you can imagine how thrilled we were when he said yes to remixing the track. We're so pleased with the result that we're rush-releasing it digitally this Friday (9th October) - more news on this later on in the week." You can listen to the track below.
