RIDE: “Tarantula” LP. Released 4th August 2023

*Black Vinyl Despite It Stating Orange Vinyl on a Sticker on the LP*

Following their ‘Nowhere’ 30th anniversary UK tour last year, shoegaze legends Ride release two more titles of their early classic albums ‘Tarantula’ and ‘Carnival of Light’ via Wichita Recordings. These follow last year’s reissues of ‘Nowhere’, ‘4EPs’, and ‘Going Blank Again’ from their days on Creation Records.

So the 4th and final album “Tarantula” generally gets even less love than the third. But come back! Again, it’s actually a great album on its own terms. It’s just very different. After the Stonesy Byrdsy album preceding it, this is much more of a straightforward indie-rock album, with the storming opener “Black Nite Crash” very much setting the scene. Andy Bell wrote most of this before the band split and he headed off to lead the short-lived Britpop-adjacent Hurricane #1, and you can see why Oasis subsequently came calling for his skills.
