Ride to support The Cure at 40th anniversary concert

Without doubt the most exciting gig/festival next summer is going to be The Cure's 40th anniversary gig at Hyde Park, London on July 7th and Ride are on the bill. Whilst The Cure playing is something to celebrate, seeing Ride appearing on the same stage as Slowdive for the first time in over 25 years will make this the most memorable night of the year. Also on the bill are Interpol, Editors, Goldfrapp and Twilight Sad with more bands to be announced. Order tickets here. If my memory is correct Ride first played with The Cure in January 1991 (and again in Sept '16 at Bestival) the concert was filmed for TV and broadcast live on Radio 1. I remember Radio 1 DJ's introducing the bands on stage and Billy Bragg giving a long talk about the Gulf War. Ride that night were absolutely on top form, whilst their set was short they played with such urgency and the guitars sounded immense through the huge pa. I still have the recording of this set on my phone and it remains my favourite live recording of the band. Ride's performance was also briefly shown as part of The Brit awards that year, this was a time when such award ceremonies were incredibly conservative and never took risks so felt like a really big deal. Watch part of Ride's set below. Watch a section of The Cure's live set below. Read about the Wembley Arena gig here

OX4
Mailing List – Ox4 release October 2001

Below is an email sent out to all subscribers of the band's mailing list following the release of OX4. hello this is just a quick note to say that the web shop that sits next to my office here in Oxford has just had it's stock in of the Box Set, the CD and Vinyl Best Of plus all the catalogue albums. It's the same web shop where we've been selling the remaining Ride T-shirts that had been filling up my garage for the past few years. There are only about 40 T-shirts left now and after those have gone that will be it, I'm afraid. So go off shopping to www.oxfordmusic.net if there's any gaps that you still need to fill. Also you've probably seen some of the reviews and interviews that have been going on around the release. Conveniently the Ticket To Ride site (linked from www.rideox4.com) and the www.creation-records.com/ride site (a fan's creation records site) have got a full list of all the recent activity with links and downloads of sound files so that you don't miss anything. Thanks to all of you who've signed up to the Ride email-list, it has been quite frantic both on the list and on the website guestbook. Things have been selling well: the Box Set, Nowhere, Going Blank Again and the Single Best Of CD have all had to be re-pressed already. It's been really exciting to walk into record shops and see the "ride" sections full once more. That's all from me but since I'm sat here with Andy at the moment I thought it only right and proper to leave him with the last word. Dave Newton Dear all: YARBLES!!! with love Andy Bell p.s. look out for the secret track!
