Indie song sculptor Tony Carbone began releasing his Beach Boys/Burt Bacharach-styled West Coast pop tunes under the name Bikeride in 1997. The band's schizophrenic take on nearly every popular musical style from Beatlesque light psychedelia to the Pixies' alt-rock pioneering (not to mention bossa nova, jazz, and new wave mod) caught the attention of indie label Hidden Agenda. Along with a number of indie vinyl releases, Carbone and his on-again, off-again Bikeride contributors have released 1997's Here Comes the Summer!, 1999's 37 Secrets I Only Told America, 2000's Summer Winners, Summer Losers, and 2002's Morning Macumba. Five years later, Bikeride returned with their fifth full-length album, The Kiss.
