Ride: Sex And The Singles Band

Stuart Maconie, New Musical Express, 8 February 1992

They are the model '90s pop group; sensitive young men with floppy hair and languid tunes, displaying cherubic belligerence laced with existential angst. But surely RIDE belong to the blank generation of anonymous musicians who are killing the glamour of pop? STUART MACONIE meets a surprisingly spunky, affable bunch with an agenda, and not Thames Valley spliff-heads with a thing about Oscar Wilde.
