Ride the Skies is the second album by noise rock band Lightning Bolt. Track #2, "Saint Jacques," is named after bassist Dan St. Jacques, a friend of the band and member of the bands Olneyville Sound System, Vincebus Eruptum (former), and Landed, the latter of which both Brian Gibson and Brian Chippendale are former members. Scandinavian free jazz power trio The Thing recorded a cover of track #4, "Ride the Sky". The cover is on their 2006 CD Action Jazz, released on the Norwegian label Smalltown Superjazzz.
