Ride take Uncut round their Oxford haunts and reveal all about their reunion in the new issue, dated May 2015 and out now.

Original members Mark Gardener, Andy Bell, Steve Queralt and Loz Colbert announced their reunion late last year, and play their first gig at California’s Coachella festival on April 10.

“We were an exciting band,” Gardener says. “[That period] was the last time people tried to experiment with music. It wasn’t rock’n’roll, it was far more than that.”


“I realised there was something indestructible about the music,” adds Andy Bell, “if you can pick up where you left off after 20 years and it makes you feel that same way.”

During their initial incarnation, the group released four albums, including 1990’s Nowhere and 1992’s Going Blank Again.
