The Californian garage king's T Rex covers album shows his melodic muscle
Ash; Twilight Of The Innocents
Ash give up on making albums but go out with a bang
It’s an artistic watermark that makes the news that this will be the last conventional ‘album’ Ash release a little bit ironic. Their future will instead be a cavalcade of singles not tied to the three-year album cycle. Time can only tell whether this is a revolutionary step in the remoulding of business models or a throwing in of the towel, but it would be a crime if this precluded them from breaking further ground in the style of ‘Twilight…’. If, however, this means that Tim Wheeler will be releasing three-and-a-half minute vignettes about rolling through green fields with rosy-cheeked maidens well into his 40s, well, that’s one more good thing in life that we can still depend on. But it’s funny how things turn out.
