Ash Ash Ash... I REALLY like this band... :D I have liked them since the song "Girl From Mars" was released!! (1995? That long ago... *siiiigh* :) ) They are around the same age as me and I really like their music... Favourite song? Well, I like so many, but I have a 'sweet spot' for "Kung Fu"!! :D :) :D

(Psst, Chris Martin is very nice, yes... ;) )

Ash are a half-decent band... I have listened to all their albums plus some extra stuff, and I reckon they are about 50% good songs and 50% filler. Their last album kind of sucked though... I preferred their earlier material. They are technically excellent and Tim Wheeler is a pretty good songwriter... unfortunately his vocals are the weakest link of the band. He really has too weak and whiny a voice to be a great rock star. Maybe that's why Chris Martin likes them, lol ;) (Only kidding Chris, Coldplay are light years ahead of Ash.) Still there are plenty of classics like Girl From Mars, Goldfinger, A Life Less Ordinary, Burn Out, I'm Gonna Fall, etc etc.

Chris is also a fan of Idlewild and Feeder (who have both recently supported Coldplay!) So Chris gets a :worship: from me for that. www.idlewild.co.uk/frameset.html and www.feederweb.com

Wow, Chris Martin has really diverse taste...that would explain Coldplays original and eclectic sound then...Ash are quite good though...I like Shining Light and Girl From Mars a lot. :)

Thank you Sir carot... :worship: ;) Oh, THAT track? :eek: I try not to think about THAT track... :sad: *gulps* ;)

I am listening to "Burn Baby Burn" RIGHT NOW!! I love this... I like the video too!! Like the cheerleader dance? *doing high kick* *ouch* :o ;) I own the albums "1977" and "Free All Angels" and the GHits album... (I love "Envy" - I love Charlotte's dress and boots in that video!! Charlotte, if you're reading honey, if you can be of help to me here... ;) )

I guess I didn't expect Chris M to be an Ash fan... Hmmm... (Shows how much I know about things? :confused: ;) )
