Ready To Receive(Boilerhouse)

With Andy Bell confined to minding his language in what's left of the world's former greatest band, Ride's legacy looks sorrier by the day. Especially the day next week when this atrocity hits the stands.

Mark Gardener may have boasted all the charisma of a punctured tyre, but in their pomp the band he once fronted did have a certain something: the ability to stretch beyond their obvious limitations and come within sniffing distance of God's flanged armpit. Animalhouse, however, offer an unwelcome reminder of what Ride were not all those years ago, principally Jesus Jones covering Duran Duran's 'Is There Something I Should Know' if this rinky-tinkling boil-in-a-baggy psychedelic shuffle is representative of their oeuvre.
