Ash | Milton Keynes The Pitz | 22/02/04

Ash

Gig Review by Lindz / Photos by Kev

Sunday 22nd February saw the mighty Irish rockers Ash return to the live circuit after a brief hiatus following the release of their critically-acclaimed album Free All Angels in 2001. The venue of choice to kick off a 12-date tour of small clubs was the Pitz, at the Woughton Centre in Milton Keynes.

Playing a set mainly taken from new album Meltdown, released in May, frontman Tim Wheeler had the Pitz audience hanging on his every word as each new song was introduced. Throwing in a few oldies for good measure, Ash turned out an immaculate performance of Shining Light and took us all back to the heady days of Britpop with Goldfinger and A Life Less Ordinary; standout tracks from the new album being Renegade Cavalcade and the new download-only single Clones (released on 25th February – Ash Wednesday, geddit?!).

 

 

 

Finishing off with a blistering Burn Baby Burn, we were left knowing Ash are truly back. The last track on 2001's Free All Angels was entitled World Domination and it seems that Ash's new album could just fulfil that prophecy.

Many thanks to Lindz and Kev. Visit the www.Ash-official.com for more info.
