A Moment With Ride
By Virginia Davila
So this is about the twentieth time i’ve met Ride?! No, it’s only the third(?) and it happened on April 2, 1994. I didn’t even know they were in town till a friend told me Idha were on KROQ — 106.7 FM. Then I turned to KROQ and I heard Andy saying that the rest of the band will be here by the end of the week. I was so happy. I called the hotel on Friday, April 1 and asked for Mark Gardener’s room and they connected me to his room. I was so scared. Nobody answered so I figured they were already in the studio.
My friend and I decided to go the next day on April 2 at 12noon. I told her we might have to stay here for ever till they show up in the lobby. We walked around in the hotel and then I saw Andy,Steve and Loz.
I felt really stupid.
I asked them if they could sing stuff for me and they said, “Yes,”Then I saw Mark and he smiled. “When did i sign this?” I said,”In July ‘93 when you were looking for a producer.”
I asked about the album and when it would come out. They told me June/July. I asked Andy where Idha was and he said,”Up in the room.” They’re the nicest people I ever met.
I went back to the hotel on April 6, I saw Andy. I was sitting down and he came up to me and said, “Hello.” He introduced me to Idha. She’s so cute.I asked them where did they get the Select — the May issue with he Ride song? They said,”In England.” Idha then said that they had an extra one we could give you. I said, “Thanks so much.” They went up to their room. Then Andy came down and gave me it. Thanks again Idha and Andy.
I hope you have a good moment with Ride as I did.

The Bilinda Butchers – “Goodbyes” - (1st press, Orange/White Marble /300)

I can only say good about The Bilinda Butchers. Their mix of Shoegaze/Dream Pop just makes me incredibly happy, especially when both genres, now getting more popular, are starting to become bland. That’s not the case with this band, and they have released one of my favorite albums this year, “HEAVEN.” This is their first Ep, their beginnings, and it’s nothing less then amazing. Check out this awesome band because this year is their year, and you’ll be sad when all of their vinyl is gone. Support them!

DiscAu did an amazing job on this pressing for their first release. Sure packaging is bland but the record looks and sounds incredible! So glad i own this.
