March 10

Ride’s Today Forever EP entered the UK singles chart at a very respectable Number 14, with Curve’s debut EP Blindfold at 68. Over in the albums chart, Spacemen 3’s swansong Recurring went in at Number 46, despite some heavy promotion from The Chain With No Name.

Curve recorded their first Peel Session, which was broadcast on BBC Radio 1 a few weeks later on March 30. It included stunning versions of ‘Ten Little Girls’ and ‘No Escape From Heaven’ from Blindfold, plus ‘The Colour Hurts’ and ‘Coast Is Clear’ from the then unreleased Frozen EP.
