a good old Ash appreciation thread

'cos I'm in the mood.

I only have the singles compilation, with the b-sides, and all the songs are quite frankly very good. Favourites:

Shining Light
There's A Star
Walking Barefoot
Sometimes
Burn Baby Burn
A Life Less Ordinary
Girl From Mars
Goldfinger
No Place To Hide
Taken Out
Stormy Waters
Where Is Our Love Going?
Stay In Love Forever
Jesus Says
The Sweetness Of Death By The Obsidian Knife

and quite a lot more.

shining light, walking barefoot, and burn baby burn are my favourites right now.

only recently have i gotten into ASH. it is really hard for me to find any of their cd's here. i guess i need to hit the stores that are not best buy or media play because i need more of their cd's. i love their music.

I've been wanting to get into them, but don't know where to start. If it weren't for reading Q, I would have never heard of them before...

The singles compilation is a pretty good place to start. It's called Intergalactic Sonic 7"s. The song that got me into them was "Goldfinger" of the 1977 album, although I've converted two people to Ash with Shining Light.

A free Ash gig? Man, you missed a lot.

Ash actually came down to Singapore sometime ago. Unfortunately, I was a)eight and hadn't known anything about Ash b) they were playing a 21 plus gig. Which is odd because that was I think the tour after Charlotte joined and they were like eighteen or nineteen.

hope this isn't too old for bumping

I've just stumbled upon these two lovely sites

http://www.geocities.com/titus182/musiclinks
http://mitglied.lycos.de/ashmusic/downloads.htm

with all these cool ash downloads. and since it's the summer, what better way to spend it than to listen to some ash?
