Ash To Perform In Brooklyn On St. Patrick's Day

I challenge you to find a better way to spend St. Patrick's Day than by drinking some festive beverages while watching the Irish trio Ash perform in Brooklyn. Yes, Tim Wheeler and his mates are taking the stage at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on St. Patrick's Day, with no other dates in North America - Source

Charlotte Quits Ash

Well, we shouldn't have said such good things about CHARLOTTE HATHERLEY's solo record last year... as she's just quit ASH to focus on her solo career. The band's website refers to the split as amicable, but we're still a touch sad to see her go.

Ash - San Diego, CA - 03/25/05

March 25, 2005
Casbah, San Diego, CA

What a fucking blazing performance. I still can't believe they played the Casbah - a 132-capacity bar - but I wasn't complaining. I was at the side of the stage on Charlotte's side, with a view of everyone.

Start the Starsailor Bashing

NME is reporting that Mogwai and Ash have started to bash Starsailor for their success in England. Stuart Braithwaite from Mogwai said that Walsh would "rape his own granny" to achieve fame. Starsailor's next single, "Alcoholic", is out on September 17th and their album, "Love Is Here", will be out on October 8th. The full tracklisting is inside.


Manics and Ash Dropped

Well, remember a few days ago when we reported that the Manic Street Preachers had been dropped by their U.S. label? Well, it's happened AGAIN, as we're now receiving word (unconfirmed but very reliable) that ASH have officially been dropped by Reprise Records in the States, which means the new Ash record, Nu-Clear Sounds, scheduled for an October U.S. release, will most likely now have to be obtained via importer. This is really getting ridiculous.
