Live at The Wireless is a superb album by a quite young and vibrant Ash who were still performing as three men. However, some argue that this was when they were at their best (I beg to differ, I think that they have been consistently quality), and this quick hard session of some of Ash's great songs is probably one of the best live sets I have heard them do.
The highlights of the album for me are 'T-Rex', which is a B-side track from the single 'Oh Yeah', 'Kung Fu' and 'Petrol'. There is a lot of ad libbing inbetween songs, like when Tim thought he forgot a verse in 'What Deaner Was Talking About' and they have two attemtps to get the beginning of 'Goldfinger' right!
This really is a good purchase if your a fan of raw, live music. I think this should be a new trend for bands because listening to pre-recorded songs is never the same as listening to a live set.
For instance, I reckon that the live version of 'Petrol' on this album blows the original single out of the water. The same goes for their versions of 'T-Rex' and 'Kung Fu'.
What more can I say? Buy it or miss out!
