The ringing guitars and British-styled alternative pop of Riverside echoed the Anglophiliac passions of another Pa combo, the Sea Blue. And in addition, Riverside’s debut recording, One, was made by previous Sea Blue keyboardist Steve Lau. When One premiered on Sire Information in 1992, Riverside was practically alone within their unyielding devotion towards the mid-’80s jangle from the Railway Kids as well as the Smiths. Featuring Keith Kochanowicz (vocals, acoustic guitar, body organ) and his sibling Glenn Kochanowicz (bass, vocals), Kenneth Jackson (guitars), and Geoff Verne (drums), Riverside created in the incorrect decade. The rock thunder of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Alice in Stores had punctured openings in fresh wave’s domination of alternate radio, and Riverside’s dreamy melodies had been way too polite to appeal to interest. The video for “Waterfall” made an appearance on MTV’s 120 Moments and then quickly vanished. If the recording have been released four years previously, probably it could’ve discovered the viewers it deserved; nevertheless, tastes transformed, and One was useless on appearance. Riverside recorded another record, Flavor, for Sire, however they had been dropped with the label before it arrived on the cabinets. Glenn Kochanowicz (bass, vocals) ultimately marketed cassette copies from the record through the web. Putting Riverside on hiatus, the Kochanowicz brothers shaped the group Deluxe.
