Volcanic Ash


ROCK revolutionaries Ash stuck it to the man last year by announcing they were to release no more albums - only singles.
Right on.
And they didn’t mess around, proceeding to release a single a week for 26 weeks to coincide with their A-Z tour of 26 cities, towns and villages in alphabetical order - Loughborough was L.
But in case you missed the gig and the radical new singles-only model, the group have come up with another revolutionary idea, compiling the first 13 of the A-Z singles in a handy compilation format...
Isn’t that an album...?
Nevermind, surely with only singles on the track listing, A-Z Volume One should be all killer and no filler?
Well, it almost is, with enough tracks like Command and True Love 1980 to bring back sweet memories of the '90s heyday.


  1. So THAT'S why they've come back from out of nowhere to do a Somerset festival.
    Never really caught on with Ash, myself.

  2. If you've never given it a listen, you really should give their album 1977 a whirl - It was one of the albums that made me pick up a guitar.
