Backstage Weekend - Ash Live At Glastonbury - 1997

Backstage Weekend with Ash - live at the Glastonbury Festival, 1997

<strong>Ash at a live gig. You sort of wonder what the hearing of the security guys is like right about now.</strong>


To finish up the weekend (and apologies for not getting this out Saturday - but like I often say, "my life got complicated"), here's a live concert from the 1997 Glastonbury Festival featuring Norther Irish alt/post-punk/power-trio Ash giving what is one high octane set.

Ash don't have that big a reputation in the States, but they are popular overseas and, for a half hour set, this is a good, if not hypertense introduction to them.

After the first few seconds, you really don't have to wonder if you should crank this up - it's almost a prerequisite.

Enjoy what's left of Sunday.
