Ash at King's College, London

Caroline Sullivan, Guardian, The, 2013

ASH HAVE BEEN rock stars for 12 years and four albums, yet, as singer Tim Wheeler has noted, they're still younger than some of the Kaiser Chiefs. They look it, too. Who would have thought that recently losing a quarter of their work force - guitarist Charlotte Hatherley - would be so revitalising? Playing their first London show as a trio since 1997, they were rock-loads of raucous fun.
