dmh: 'big thanks to everyone who voted for BBB in the q awards. it was fantastic to win it and couldn't have done it without your help. big up the ash team. iceland was great but unfortunatley there was no snow! typical but we still found some amazing locations and now the whole video is looking very lunar and straight out of star wars. been busy editing the TAS dvd. it features thailand, cuba, indonesia, australia with a few suprises in there. we all got destroyed last night in paris and i'm not getting out of bed today. we've been invited to the writs (welsh brits) and are up for best international band so fingers crossed. pretty nice live review in nme this week aswell. anyway , where's the room service menu.......'

29th October 2001

Due to popular demand of the original 7" jack names the planets is being released... it will be the original 7" verison with b-side don't know (which both can also be found as hidden tracks at the beginning of limited edition verisons of 1977...) thou i dont think it is being aimed at the singles chart.

anyway Tav said:

'well.....it just so happens that i am going to re-release good old jack. this time on cd, cos so many people have requested it (not many record players out there these days). there's even going to be a bonus track - an early version of 'season', taken from the raptor 12" that mark put out before they signed to infectious. it won't be on lalaland cos someone tried to sue me for using that name(it belongs to some production company). it will be released through double dragon, my new label and home to little hell.


1. jack names the planets 2. don't know 3. season

should be out sometime in the new year.'

25th October 2001

There's A Star vid: What dmh said, 'ok, we're off to iceland tomorrow to shoot it up in the mountains, imagine vast area covered in snow, think hoth in the empire strikes back, we're all dressed han solo style with rebel alliance logo's with rescue flare going up in the night and we're gonna come across 'snow jawas!' whilst tim makes a quest across the snow scape searching for his flying v just in time for the solo. how epic..........'

11th October 2001 - News thanks to Sam Morris

Hey, just mentioning maybe for your diary thang, Ash played in Sydney on 9-10-01 with George and Sonic Animation for a filming of a crap show called Pepsi Live, sponsored by... Pepsi!

Forget all the screwing around and the bollocks setting up between bands and the made for TV shite and all that, the music was kicking, all dirty guitars and hummable hooks. That's Ash for you, I guess.

They played four songs, including Candy, and were pretty much treated with a full enthusiastic audience, with all the little Irish fans down the front chanting/singing every word. Smiles.

Thanks to Ash, me and my buddy got to shake our little bootys and pick up the bitches.

On 10-10-01 Ash performed an instore at Red Eye Records in Sydney, free and packed. Not really Ash, just singer and guitarer, all acoustica and different songs, a lot of the old 1977 stuff [the best stuff], the big singles and a few bad haircuts.

9th October 2001

dmh's comments bout fridays totps performance: 'we already pre recorded it and it's set like the vid.' and its ash's tenth totps performance.

8th October 2001

Candy got to number 20 in the charts yesterday, which isnt bad, esp as it was number 16 mid-week and band singles tend to drop a lot over the weekend due to poptarts, and its the 4th single off the album. and mark said the bands aim was top 20.

dmh's comments on this: 'so we stayed in the 20! this is a big result. FAA is now at 37. so back in the 40 hopefully back in the 30 by next week. look out for TOTP on friday night................ ok here we go, the wars just started better go, god bless' (also cd:uk this week, i think :D )

Also Candy is released on limited edition double 7" today. Available from big record stores like HMV and Virgin.

Anyway check out stu's FAA site at http://ash-freeallangels.tripod.com/

14th September 2001

It looks like Candy is being released on Oct 1st now (thanks stu for info), and that ash are going back into the studio in march to record their next album and it is rumoured to be released in may/june. But my guess is that it may take a little longer than a few months, even thou the songs are correctly following like running shit, obviously sounding much better thou!
