Unfortunately, despite a one-off jam here and there with his former mates in Ride, an exceptional homage like Nofuckingwhere is as close to the real thing as fans are going to get, according to Gardener.

"I just think that we did it, and we did it so well, and I think some bands do [reunions] as a payout — it's a pension policy, in a way," he says. "I agree with Andy, it's something that when we get together we're aware of offers that come our way for us to play again; and now and again you think for a few minutes, 'Ah, it could be good to do.' But why are we really doing that, you know? We have to be really careful with nostalgia in our lives, and that's very difficult when we have such a thing as Ride in our past. I don't fight against it; I embrace the fact that we did what we did." ^
