Ride
Nowhere

Creation Records · CRECD 074 · CD, Album · 1990 · UK

Ride stood on the handsome side of shoegaze, for what it is worth. The complete, among with mbv and Slowdive, the Holy Trinity of Creation; they had discrete commercial acclaim, touching the UK top ten exactly with Nowhere.

A bit closer to alternative rock than to s******e, they were absorbed by britop by sound before, and then literally: who went to Oasis, wo went on its own, who went nowhere (no pun intended).
