Northern Ireland’s finest, Ash are coming to West London’s Subterania (previously home to Jamie T, Eminem, Foo Fighters & The Red Hot Chilli Peppers) for an incredibly special, one-off show on December 14, 2022. This specially curated show will chart the Downpatrick Trio’s success story from the Number One selling album 1977, the follow-up Nu-Clear Sounds, before a return to the number one spot with the universally acclaimed Free All Angels seeing Tim Wheeler awarded with an Ivor Novello for Shining Light, with seven studio album releases and a run of thirteen Top 40 singles such as Girl From Mars, Gold Finger, Oh Yeah, ASH have cemented themselves as one of the all-time greats!
ASH recently announced the re-issued newly re-mastered splatter vinyl of two of their beloved albums, 1977 and Free All Angels.
1977, the band’s spectacular debut album, was a defining record for 90s guitar music, reaching No.1 in the Official UK Albums Chart, and going to achieve platinum status. Its singles ‘Girl From Mars’, ‘Kung Fu’, ‘Goldfinger’, ‘Angel Interceptor’ and ‘Oh Yeah’ remain staples of the band’s live show, as they still ring out at sold-out shows and in festival headline slots.
Free All Angels was the third smash hit album from Ash, and their second with guitarist Charlotte Hatherley. The album again reached No.1 in the UK and has since become a platinum record. It birthed the Ivor Novello-winning smash hit single ‘Shining Light’, the NME Single of The Year ‘Burn Baby Burn’, ‘Sometimes’, ‘There’s A Star’, ‘Candy’ and Walking Barefoot’.
Throughout the month of December artists such as Ash, Big Country, The Dublin Legends, The Mick Clarke Band, John Power and The Men They Couldn’t Hang will all be playing special, one-off, intimate shows as part of the “40 Years of Memories : The Mean Fiddler” series of gigs across London.
