I don't really think it's accurate to say that Ride were trend hopping. They recorded Going Blank Again in the summer and fall of '91, so they'd already moved away from shoegaze once the shoegaze bandwagon had really gotten rolling. By spring of '93 they were playing their "britpop" material live, even including a cover of The Kids are Alright in lieu of some of their older material. This puts them on the same timeline as Modern Life is Rubbish, Oasis's demos, and the other early britpop. I think it'd be more accurate to say that Ride were in the thick of things, and were a part of the inevitable transition into britpop.


Although I have to agree about the fedora...


not to mention Ride were one of the first post-Isn't Anything Shoegaze bands.

I like Ride okay but I saw them in... '92(?) and having seen a band at the time usually makes me pretty meh about a reunion. And that fedora really is a deal breaker.

I like Slowdive a lot and love pretty much anything involving Mark Van Hoen but that Black Hearted Brother album was actually quite dreadful.

yeah, that BHB album felt very thin. It's something I felt like I really should've liked, but it was more interesting for what it represented than any actual music.

I've heard great things about Slowdive live and I imagine Ride would be good as well, but I guess that's not really why I'd at all get excited over a reunion and seems like a relatively easy step compared to actually writing new music. I mean, I've only heard good things  about Pink Floyd's live shows since Gilmour took over... but the music's boring.
