Radiohead is not particularly talented, but very contrived and produced and commercial. Like Coldplay. They get a lot of credit for art they aren't producing. While artists, like Ride, go unmentioned and uncredited.
If you were part of the generation that was supposedly defined by Radiohead...maybe you would cringe when you heard that whiney moany sound.
This band, however, gives me chills and makes me all kinds of excited.
It was 1991: The Stone Roses had made their outburst and we were yet to hear from On a Friday. The sound of Ride came drifting along the Woodstock Road. Hey, these guys were famous and they were from our city. Didn't one of them share a house with somoneelse's ex-girlfriend? Worth buying the LP for.
By the autumn, On a Friday had been signed and Ride simply couldn't hold a candle anymore to the most innovative band in the world. But Ride had their moment and it's still there in this track.
Great band. Why is it that people feel the need to say rude things about Radiohead? Both Radiohead and Ride are talented bands. Just because Radiohead got more popular doesn't mean that you have to hate on them.
