Ride – Black Nite Crash

This was the last single before Ride split up in 1996, and I think that it is a great parting shot.  It was the only post Going Blank Again tune that made it onto there Coachella 2015 set yesterday. It was awarded single of the week in Melody Maker, and reached 67 in the Singles Chart. Black Nite Crash is a slice of rock from the floppy fringed four piece. The lyrics and chords are shot out and the whole rock picture is completed by metaphors about rattlesnakes. The other tracks are worthy of inclusion in Tarantula, but they were left off.
