Though I'm running the risk of sounding like a person a lot older and more disillusioned with the state of this new-fangled world than myself, I will say it, HALLOWEEN IS NOT AS SCARY AS IT WAS BACK IN THE DAY! And by 'back in the day', I mean the day of the S Club 7 and constant Kenan and Kel re-runs...so around 10 years ago. You know what I mean though.

Babysitting. Something about which I have vivid memories; a teenage part-time-job. And now it's come full circle, as what seems like five minutes later, I'm all grown-up and paying a teenager to mind my kids.

I did a gig last night and I asked some comedians what they missed most about Woolworths and why THEY thought it had vanished from our high street. They all said the same two words to me - pick n mix and shoplifting.

It would be a lie to suggest that nothing changes. I no longer throw extended, highly emotional screaming matches at being forced to eat sprouts, like I did when I was 12. Or wet the bed, like I did when I was 12. But fundamentally, it doesn't feel so different. I for one prefer a Tracey Beaker omnibus and ice cream to paying bills.

Ride - Two Great Albums During a Great Period for Music

The early 90s was a booming period for new music and new genres, one that perhaps has not been matched since. Ride certainly had their role to play within this with their two LPs from the period Nowhere and Going Blank Again. Overshadowed and perhaps underrated, recent rereleases and the 2001 best of compilation should hopefully preserve the great music they created during this period. Already regarded as one of the great shoegaze bands, Ride should also be regarded as one of the great bands of the 90s.
