Ash have come back with their No 1 hit album Free All Angels. They wowed all at the UEA with their hits Shining Light, Burn Baby Burn and Candy plus many others.

As with all guitar bands, Charlotte was a bit too loud, and Tim with vocals a bit too quiet but that did not stop the young pop-pickers at the front of the stage from jumping up and down and even on top of one another. Ash rocked and so did everything else in the building.
Tim Wheeler and his writing talent seemed to have steered this Northern Ireland band from a knife-edge of potential ruin to near perfection.
Their current sound is a welcome return to form and it shows that going back to your roots is never a bad thing.
This has shaped their survival where other mid-90s acts such as Gene, Sleeper, Elastica and Shed Seven have been cast aside.
If it ain't broke don't fix it, and the material of Free All Angels screams of past glories Girl From Mars, Gold Finger and Kung Fu.
