Album 1997 11 Songs. Take in the Sun. Alternative 1997. Interestingly, Bike's debut LP inhabits the sonic terrain his previous band's Melt was awash in - that dark, ringing shimmer full of reverb and some delay and speaker-filling density. When Take in the Sun thrives, such as on Anybody Know and especially the snarling Old and Blue, the vet twists his guitar signatures into a more twisting, biting, Shayne Carter-esque territory, leaving enough space for the aural unsaid as much as the said. And he remains capable of more sunny stuff like Sunrise. Flying Nun band, from their sole 1997 album. RIP Andrew Brough also of Blue Meanies, The Orange, Straitjacket Fits.
