Throw in a few festivals along the way (Vic & Tas) and support for The Living End on their Retrospective Tour (QLD shows only) and Ash is proving to be one unstoppable muso, much to the delight of his followers.

In addition, Triple J have also just announced Ash’s Live At The Wireless recording (recorded at the Metro, Sydney June 23) is scheduled to go to air tomorrow on Sarah Howells Roots ‘N’ All program at 10.00pm (EST) – be sure to tune into this special, live event!
