Ash

Possibly one of the rarest UK folk gems from 1975, as rare as life itself?. Awesome electric violin and disturbingly haunting vocals tell the depressing story of a Yorkshire hermit named Job Senior. “Birth” sets the scene for what is a profoundly sad album that will leave you deep in thought every time you hear it. “Journeys” a fine piece of violin work runs into “Stone on Stone” which is almost Incredible String Band in vocal style. “A long Winter” tells of the latter stages of Job’s life after his wife dies and he is living alone on the moors of Ilkley. “Who Knows” is a sorry lament as Job ends up living in the remains of his dead wifes house which has been pulled down by her family in an attempt to evict him. “The Outcast/Rebirth” ends the albums tragic story. Hear it and weep…

Ash are a Northern Irish alternative rock band, formed in Downpatrick in 1992 by vocalist and guitarist Tim Wheeler, bassist Mark Hamilton and drummer Rick McMurray. As a three-piece, they released mini-album Trailer in 1994, followed by 1977 in 1996.

After the success of their full debut the band recruited Charlotte Hatherley as a guitarist and vocalist, releasing their second record Nu-Clear Sounds in 1998.

After narrowly avoiding bankruptcy the band released Free All Angels in 2001 and a string of successful singles.
