Ash – A-Z Vol.1 (Album Review)

April 25, 2010

The last couple of months have been anything but quiet in the Ash camp. After the mega selling Free All Angles, the well received and much heavier Meltdown and the slightly underwhelming Twilight of the Innocents (Lads, you never gave that album any proper attention so shut the f**k up – Ed.) and the loss […]

June 13, 2011

Ash, Ireland’s favourite pop rock trio are back in Dublin tonight for a highly anticipated appearance at local indie haunt, Whelan’s of Wexford St. Excitement’s been building for weeks so it’s no surprise to see queue’s of hungry Ash fans geared up for a night of sweat, pints and tuneage. Entering the packed venue it […]

INTERVIEW: Mark Hamilton (ASH)

June 4, 2011

Since forming nearly two decades ago, ASH have become the brightest champions of alternative / pop / punk rock to emerge from Northern Ireland. Their career is practically one long repertoire of greatest hits and there’s no sings of stopping them, especially since they’re all at least ten years younger than any other band with […]

Ash – Mind Control (Single Review)

April 25, 2010

God, as soon as one Ash review goes up there’s another to be done. We were 100% sure single O wasn’t coming till next week but here we are, another two weeks over and another fecking single review to do. Thank god the song in question is damn right savage. While Single N, Dare To […]

Review: Ash – Live @ Andrews Lane Theatre, Dublin (March 20th, 2010)

March 22, 2010

Always a dodgy things these free, invite only promo gigs. It’s either going to be a small room, located in a budding, hip – fashion friendly district of town with The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin jamming in the corner while people look elsewhere, laughing prolifically and sipping champagne. Or, they can be like tonight’s […]

PREVIEW: Temple House Festival 2011

May 26, 2011

Feel the excitement building? Anyone who was there last year is and with just over two weeks left until launch, Temple House Festival fever has well and truly begun. Over one hundred incredible bands, 4 stages, countless events and quirks, a medieval village, an arts trail, excellent food and a thousand other attractions, all set […]

Ash – Carnal Love (Single Review)

July 31, 2010

If there’s one song in the second part of Ash’s A-Z series that’s well and truly worth getting excited about it’s their new single, Carnal Love. Here they are, five tracks from the end and they come out with one the best songs of the whole series. The verse is nice, stripped back, non-invasive and […]

Ash – Summer Snow (Single Review)

July 18, 2010

Another two weeks have passed and this time Tickets There guarantees you it’s been worth the wait because Summer Snow, Ash’s latest single from their A-Z series is a wonderful piece of music. They’re sticking with the more simplistic style of writing that’s dominated the second part of the series but they’ve brought the guitars […]

Ash – Instinct (Single Review)

July 4, 2010

Another fantastically sunny Sunday here in Dublin and what better way to celebrate than by closing the curtains, straining the tired eyes and listening to the latest single from Ash. Tickets There only managed to reach bed around eight am this morning so we’re relying on the Co. Down boys to wake us up more […]

Ash – Spheres (Single Review)

June 20, 2010

It’s Fathers day and what better gift could any father ask for than a brand spanking new tune from Ireland’s leading pop rock trio, Ash. Single S, Spheres is officially available for streaming today and given a few goes, it’s proven to be one of the best from the second half of the A-Z Series. […]

Ash – Physical World (Single Review)

June 8, 2010

Little later than we’ve liked. If Ash have the decency to be on time, you think we’d manage it. Fortunately it’s given us a few extra days to absorb the latest release in the A-Z series and this is always a good think when your love for the music increases. Physical World is a real […]

Ash – Binary (Single Review)

May 23, 2010

Getting closer to the end of the series and the success machine that is Ash’s A-Z rolls on. Their latest track, Binary is a little slice of dance/pop heaven. Lighter than TT’s preferred Ash sound, the song still retains the perfect pop sensibilities, catchy changes and flat our perfectionism we love about the group. Any […]

Ash – Song of Your Desire (Single Review)

February 28, 2010

It’s kind of sad to know we’re almost half way through this release. With the release of single K, there’s only two more singles left (out of respect for the privacy the band have shrouded around future releases, we won’t tell you which letters are next. Good luck figuring that out!) before we reach the […]

Ash – True Love 1980 (Single Review)

November 7, 2009

Single number one of the A-Z Series of singles Ash will be releasing fortnightly for the…well, the next 52 weeks. True Love 1980 is a totally different vibe from the disco styling’s of Return of White Rabbit. It’s more along the lines of New Order but a little more upbeat. They’ve still managed to keep […]

MYSPACE REVIEW – ASH (RETURN OF WHITE RABBIT)

June 3, 2009

Not a real MySpace Review but instead a look at Ash’s new single. Have some of their albums but have never had the pleasure of seeing them live. Well, for anyone thinking the loss of Charlotte Hatherley would hurt Ash you’re about to get a serious wake up call. Return of White Rabbit is basically […]
