Los Angeles rock band Mother Superior
drew regional acclaim in the late nineties, particularly with their excellent 1998 album Deep
, produced by Henry Rollins
, who subsequently brought them in as the backing musicians in the Rollins Band
guitarist Scott Ian, a long time Mother Superior fan, teamed up with the band's former frontman, Jim Wilson, and invited a few friends to revamp some of the band's songs under the name Motor Sister. Alongside Wilson and Ian, Ride
also features Joey Vera (Fates Warning
, Armored Saint
) on bass, John Tempesta (White Zombie
) on drums and Pearl Aday (Ian's wife, daughter of Meat Loaf
) on backing vocals.
Now with the benefit of an expanded two-guitar lineup, the songs are given extra muscle and crunch, but rather than cluttering the sound, the thick sound makes Ride
an exciting collection of no-frills, swaggering rock and roll. It's out March 10 on Metal Blade Records.
