Ash Wednesday 2014 marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Ash’s debut single “Jack Names the Planets”. To celebrate the band are the offering a special re-recorded version of the song as a free download for one day only.
Originally written in 1992, "Jack Names the Planets" first featured on Ash’s second demo tape Shed and later on demo compilation tape Pipe Smokin’ Brick. After the demos were picked up by Stephen Taverner "Jack Names the Planets" was released on his new formed La La Land records 20 years ago. With the single picking up play on Radio One and impressing influential DJs Steve Lamacq, John Peel and Mark Radcliffe the band’s fate was sealed and they signed to Infectious Records.
Ash re-recorded "Jack Names the Planets" for their mini-album debut Trailer released in October 1994 but the La La Land recording later featured alongside B-side "Don’t Know" as hidden tracks on the first 50,000 copies of 1977 and as bonus extras on the deluxe edition of 1977. The version of "Jack Names the Planets" available today as a free download was recorded in 2011 and featured on the The Best Of Ash CD/DVD release.
