Ride with Jock Sturges

Although short-lived as a band, Ride was around long enough to put out a couple of phenomenal albums (Nowhere and Going Blank Again) and a couple of mediocre ones (Carnival of Light and Tarantula) before they broke up in 1996.  Three of the singles from the second album–well, technically two singles and a Japan-only compilation of both of the other singles–featured photos by Jock Sturges.  I’ve posted a small sample of Sturges’s work here before, and he’s already so well known that I see little reason to post too many of his photos, but these fit this month’s theme, so up they go.
