A Is For Ash…

ASH 'A-Z Volume 1' [released 26/04/2010]
CD I Ltd CD/DVD'A-Z Vol. 1' marks the halfway point in Ash's groundbreaking 26 single campaign the A-Z Series. Wrapping up singles A to M alongside a host of bonus material, the compilation illustrates Ash's rejuvenated creative zeal.
Currently back in their Manhattan HQ recording tracks which will complete the second half of the series, Ash have been spurred on by the unique challenge of a singles only future. The scrutiny of each track being drip-fed to fans, juxtaposed by freedom from the traditional 2-year album cycle, has fostered a new Ash era of diverse, imaginative pop.
While the rock electro hybrids 'True Love 1980' and 'Space Shot' have broken through to the airwaves, the consistent quality of the series is backed up by the varied and original song writing on the tracks in between.  The 3-minute gem 'Ichiban', the expansive dynamic rock of 'Joy Kicks Darkness', the classic Wheeler love song 'Tracers' and the atmospheric tale of humanity lost 'Pripyat' are amongst the bands responses to the creative everest that is a 26 single campaign.
