The band remember old friends Zak Foley and Jon Lee with a blistering run through 'Angel Interceptor'...

Ash dedicated a track to the late JON LEE of Feeder

and ZAC FOLEY of EMF during their headlining performance at the NME CARLING SHOW at LONDON’s ASTORIA last night (February 5).

During a brief introduction to Ash standard ‘Angel Interceptor’, frontman Tim Wheeler said this is for “lost friends, sadly missed” before starting the track.

The Ash show, the most ecstatically received of the first two nights of the month-long NME gigs, was a greatest hits set racing through tracks including ‘Girl From Mars’, ‘Burn Baby Burn’, ‘Shining Light’, ‘Goldfinger’ and ‘Jack Names The Planets’.

“I want to thank NME for dragging us out of early retirement,” Wheeler had earlier joked.

Also playing last night were rising English rock sorts Hundred Reasons, Swedish retro revivalists Soundtrack Of Our Lives, who encouraged a large section of the Astoria crowd to sit down during their performance, and Northern Irish rockers Jet Plane Landing.
