Ash - Teenage Wildlife: 25 Years Of Ash 2LP
Having successfully outlasted their self-described ‘guaranteed real teenagers’ tagline when they first burst in earshot in 1994, Ash release "Teenage Wildlife: 25 Years Of Ash".
"Teenage Wildlife" traces the band’s recording career from exuberant debut "Jack Names The Planets" through to the likes of "BuzzKill" from 2018’s top twenty album "Islands" whilst also including a brand new offering "Darkest Hour Of The Night" alongside thirteen Top 40 singles such as Girl from Mars, Gold Finger, Oh Yeah amid an array of the band’s recorded history.
From their mini-album "Trailer", a volley of intent with "Jack Names The Planets", "Uncle Pat" and 2Petrol" recorded whilst still at school, and 1996’s number one album "1977", almost imploding with the follow-up "Nu-Clear Sounds", the addition of teenage guitarist Charlotte Hatherley, 1998’s historic Northern Irish Referendum show in Belfast before a return to the number one spot with the universally acclaimed "Free All Angels" seeing Tim Wheeler awarded with an Ivor Novello for Shining Light, consolidating a reputation for a run of extraordinary singles.
Whether the original trio or expanded four-piece with the multi-talented Hatherley, Ash have continually excelled both live and on record – an edited overview of reflection, "Teenage Wildlife" encapsulates the past twenty-five years perfectly.
