Oxford's Ride were indie royalty at the start of the 90s. Their second album, Going Blank Again, went Top 5 in 1992 in an era when indie was still a minority pursuit. But when label Creation signed a little-known Manchester group called Oasis, Ride were no longer the golden boys. Their fourth album, Tarantula, was released on March 11 1996 and deleted one week later. Andy Bell later sought solace by joining Oasis 9 images.

Re-mastered at Abbey Road, London. All songs published by Ride Music, Warner Chappell except Deep Inside My Pocket and Slave published by Ride Music, Warner Chappell, FAI Music. Cardboard gatefold sleeve.
No focus, no spirit, almost no quality songs - Smaller Faces. The band even subbed for Oasis openers the Verve during one of the band's tours, before the recording of Tarantula, signifying a changing of the guard. Not helping the matter was a lack of ideas - and a producer - before entering the studio.
Album Name Tarantula.
