Mailing List – News update – April 2015

Below is an email sent out to all subscribers of the band's mailing list in April 2015. Tomorrow Never Knows - April 2015 Last time we played there, in May 1990, it was the humble Co-Op Hall. It's been through a number of name changes since - Oxford Venue, Zodiac, Carling Academy - as well as a lot of structural changes resulting in two live music rooms worthy of gracing any city in the country. As the Co-Op Hall it played an important part in developing the opportunities available to local Oxford bands and came along just at the right time for us. We'd sold out the 200 capacity Jericho Tavern for the first time in June 1989 and with the Co-Op Hall opening up as a 500 capacity music venue just 9 months beforehand, it meant that there was now another opportunity for local bands to aspire to. So it seemed only right for our first show in 20 years to be taking place in the room that had been so key to us. We'll be back there this Sunday (April 5th), just ahead of our tour dates in California which take in two Coachella Festival appearances as well as shows in San Francisco, Pomona, San Diego (dates below) and.... ...we are happy to say, a return to The Roxy in LA on Wednesday April 8th. Well you didn't really think that the first time we would be walking on stage to play together in the US would be in front of thousands of people at Coachella, did you? The Roxy too has a special place in our past as we played two shows there in 1991 on the co-headline tour we did of North America with Lush. Moreover, one of the shows was recorded and released a few years back by Rhino/Warners as part of a special 2xCD 20th Anniversary Edition of Nowhere. They say good things come in threes... ..and so here are the details of the third club show we'll be play in the coming months. After the New York show at Terminal 5 in June sold out so quickly, we decided we would try and squeeze another show into our schedule in the New York area. Et voila. We have booked the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn on Monday June 1st. By the way, the Oxford show is an early one as we have a plane to catch the following morning! We reckon we'll be on stage just after 8pm and there will be no support act on that show. In LA we have Eagulls supporting and in Brooklyn we have Penguinsrising (there's almost as theme developing here). All shows have a limit of two tickets per person. Hurry, hurry, hurry - these shows will sell fast. The Oxford show is on sale now LA goes on sale at 3pm (PST) today Brooklyn has a pre-sale that is live at Noon (EST) today, with the remainder on sale at Noon (EST) on Friday (3rd) If you don't manage to get tickets for the LA show then each of the other Californian shows this month have some tickets still available: Monday 13th: The Warfield, San Francisco - tickets Tuesday 14th: Fox Theater, Pomona - tickets Thursday 16th: Humphreys Concerts By the Bay, San Diego - tickets And if all else fails, you can catch us live on air on for a Morning Becomes Eclectic session on KCRW on the morning of the LA Roxy show (April 8th). Fancy a little taster from rehearsals? Here's (some of) Seagull. signing off with a little bit of trivia for you... The Play EP was released 25 years ago tomorrow (April 2nd) and later that week entered the charts at number 32, becoming our first Top 40 hit.

Firing Blanks sleeve
Steve Queralt’s guide to Firing Blanks

Back in 2001 when I was running the Creation Records fansite I interviewed Steve Queralt upon the release of the OX4 Best of_ boxset. Below is the accompanying guide Steve wrote about the Firing Blanks album which has been lost in cyberspace for many years, until now.... What's your favourite track? Tongue Tied or Something's Burning? Something's Burning - During the summer of 1993 we recorded two sessions at Courtyard Studios in Oxford as preparation for "Carnival Of Light". Sadly this song, whilst good enough to have been included was dropped along with various other potential tunes. Just too many songs knocking around at that time. Chelsea Girl (4 track demo) - This is Andy and Me demoing tunes during 1988 in my bedroom. I had a four track machine which we used for all sorts of ideas in the early days before we had a proper band. In later months we managed to demo a lot of early songs squeezing the whole band into bedrooms or living rooms much to the neighbours disgust. Blue & Everybody Knows - Written by Loz, these were originally included in the tracklisting for Going Blank Again. Unfortunately they were dropped along with 'Tongue Tied' on the advice of both record companies who were insisting that the album was way too long. I think they had a point. Dreams Burn Down dub - Again we made Creation very nervous when we played them this saying that we had re-thought the whole concept of the song. Although it would be difficult to top the real version, I think this is a fantastic alternative offering an even darker atmosphere. She's So Fine - It took three years for this song to finally make it on to Tarantula. This is the original version recorded back in 1993, another song left by the wayside in preparation for Going Blank Again. We demoed it again in Cornwall with John Leckie, this time looping a 4 bar sample which never made it to the vocal stage. New Age - The only cover on the CD. Recorded at Abbey Road as a potential b-side for 'How Does It Feel To Feel' but later superseded by some instrumental nonsense from me and Loz in the shape of 'Walkabout'. God knows why! Tongue Tied - This in my opinion is the best unreleased track that we ever recorded. I think this is one of the few occasions where the intensity and beauty of Ride was captured perfectly on tape, everything fits together perfectly. Unfortunately it was dropped as a way of reducing the length of Going Blank Again. Why it never turned up on a b-side I don't know. Dropped and forgotten. I'm Fine Thanks - Another song from the early days. It was originally titled 'Why' and demoed several times on the four track before we took it into our first proper recording session at Union St. Studios in Oxford where we recorded Drive Blind. An early live favourite. Xmas Song - Absolutely nothing to do with Christmas. A sign of cabin fever setting in during the Going Blank Again sessions. King Bullshit - Yet another piece of music that could have been included on Going Blank Again. The full version is over 8 minutes long and was edited down to about 60 seconds to bridge a couple of songs on the album instead. This version uses all the best bits without having to endure the full horror of Me and Loz going on and on and on... Smile (4-track version) - We had to work hard to clean this version up as every other demo fell short of the danger that appears here. Again another song that worked really well live but never sounded right in the studio, hence this hissy mess that captures Andy's speakers giving up half way through the outro. Welcome To Paradise - Recorded and mixed for Tarantula but cut from the final tracklisting. In A Different Place (differently) - This is included as it has something that the Nowhere version failed to capture. Andy's lead guitar is way over the top and the rest of us are playing all sorts of bum notes but for some reason it remains the best take we ever did. BarneyS - This is what happens when you're trying to record an album but your singer is still in bed at 3 in the afternoon. It's a tribute (or blatant rip off) to New order that gradually built throughout the day looping Loz's fills and Andy's riffs onto my backing track. However as soon as Mark arrived with axe in hand, normal Ride business was resumed.
