- Columbia Records Official Site:
This band puts more passion into singles perfromances than most
bands do in several tours. To say that they are a most incredible
live act is an understatement. Do yourself a favor and check out
what rock and roll should be if they come to your town. In the
meantime their albums are tasty morsels of rock, blues, soul, and
tons of energy. It's nice to see so much work put into an
official site...lots of great info, etc.

bands on their

Cheryl's Beatles Page:
There are literally hundreds of sites for this band and this site
includes links to most of them (for the completests). As
much as my tastes may run to the esoteric at times, I always have
and always will love this band. They showed us how a great rock
band can progress throught a career without compromise.

- Buffalo Moon:
Run by Kerry Neill and has caught the attention and respect
of the band itself.
Very slow connection, but a nice complete site. Uses frames.
Not quite folk, but not quite rock. Hear and see this
passionate and heartfelt singer/singwriter from the UK.
- Evan's Unoffical Page:
Nice job Evan! The person who runs this site, not only runs the
Ride email list, but has also created this site in cooperation
with the band and label itself. Ya see, not all bands and record
co. people are that bad!

This page was made by my friend and former roommate, Mark. His band,
some of *HIS* views, various ways to get in touch with the band

They are recommended if you would enjoy a mix of My Bloody
Valentine, the Wedding Present, Cocteau Twins, Curve, Slowdive,
the Verve, the Smiths, Jimi Hendrix, and Smashing Pumpkins.
Contact me if you'd like to know more about their sound. BUT

information, or any way of contacting someone who knows what
this band is doing currently, PLEASE
YES! The first really complete Kitchens site I've seen!

- Official Mogwai Information:
You may remember the name from the movie Gremlins, but I
can assure you, we're talking about something completely
different: spacey guitars, pounding rhythms, and mostly
instrumental at that. They also put on one hell of a live show!
- The Official Mojave 3 site:
Mojave 3 are Neil Halstead, Rachel Goswell & Ian McCoutcheon of
Slowdive. This time around the music is more accoustic and mellow
then their previous efforts as Slowdive. Their new single, "Who Do

future. I'm skeptical, but see for yourself what's happening.

The official site of this wonderful band. Haven't heard them yet?
They combine elements of hip-hop & jazz, beth's beautiful (and

most original sounds to surface in the last 10 years or so.

haunting, voice of Mark Kozelek, set to the background of
undertstated production, accoustic guitars, and some of the
most revealing lyrics i've ever heard. There used to be an
excellent official site for the band but I have no idea
what happened to it. Instead I'll offer you these sites:

records and has lots of interesting stuff about the band.
