So things have been a little crazy around these parts lately and we’ve neglected to update this site with anything meaningful in a while, in our defence we have been working hard on a new Walking Barefoot however it is still some time away from completion. Anyway here’s an update on some of the news we’ve missed.

A few weeks ago Ash returned home to N. Ireland and played on stage for the first time since their legendary 1977 shows in London last September. The band flew in with acoustic guitars and a borrowed bass to play unplugged, as it was gonna cost to much to get all their gear flown over for only two songs. The band played “Shining Light” as well as a cover of “Mrs. Robinson”. All the bands on the bill got on stage at the end to perform “Teenage Kicks”.

On the recording front the band will soon have 36 songs mixed and recorded and are ready to make an announcement in the next few weeks.

Ash and all three members have also joined twitter, the details are below:

The new Ash official forum has also been launched, so be sure to head over there and sign up.
