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

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.
