    Ash are quite simply the band that soundtracked my life. I was a kid when 1977 came out, and went through all of the same heartbreaks and fantastic summers that the lyrics invoked, ripping off lines from “Oh Yeah” in post-it note romances with whichever lucky girl held my affection for 5 minutes.. I was a rebellious, precocious, yet adventurous young man when Nuclear Sounds was released and it nearly finished me. I was a hopeless, dreamy romantic by the time Free All Angels dropped (selling 3 million units in the process), making the job of mixtape-makers worldwide a whole load easier. When Meltdown was released, I too felt criminally underrated, in life/love/career, even though I tried so hard (RIP Audiojunkies). And by the time Twilight of the Innocents came along, I too was looking to the future for other projects and different ways of doing things (I guess ultimately that leads to POST/POP!).



    I also wrote a film for them which holds such mythical qualities, I feel like it was written in unicorn blood on human skin called SLASHED. Also, along with Karen Staughton (nee PIPER aka PIPES) I organised the infamous 20th Anniversary #ASH20 event which involved the band performing 3 times in one day, compering by the simply awesome Josie Long, lots of bands and surprise guests (My Vitriol, Bloc Party, Feeder (!?) & the lovely Charlotte Hatherley – playing Burn Baby Burn at 3/4 speed and then double-time for a bit, and then back to 3/4) and convincing the cafe nextdoor to the Garage to rename all of their menu with Ash puns. So what I’m trying to say here, is that we go way back and that I am humbled and excited that one of my favourite bands of all time (and one of the best British bands ever) have agreed to this special limited edition cassette tape for Cassette Store Day.



    This 15 track album is made up of singles from the A-Z series, which was made up of 26 songs, released fortnightly over the course of a year. These songs are chosen by ASH as the best of a great bunch and there are not that many being made + there are no pre-orders, so once they are gone, they are gone forever!



    How do you get them then Jed? Well stranger, nay potential friend, you can embrace Cassette Store Day on September 27th and take a walk to your local independent record shop (if they are taking part in CSD) where they will have a copy (Rough Trade, Sound it Out etc). If you cant make it to the shops, you may still have a chance as whatever is left will be put online on a first come first serve basis. You will be able to buy online from the next day (September 28th) from ASH or POST/POP.



    BOOKMARK/SPREAD THIS PAGE – As this is where you will find the list of all shops that are selling the ASH tape on Cassette Store Day + a link to buy it online the day after. ASH are also in the process of recording a brand new album for release in 2015 so stay tuned to ASH-OFFICIAL for news on that. You can also pre-order lead singer TIM WHEELER’s debut solo album from HERE and you should because it’s going to be incred.
