The Return of Ash Wednesday

It’s Ash Wednesday today and, like last year, I present a number of tunes for the day that’s in it. Warmer Than Fire by Little Hell is performed here by Northern Ireland’s Ash (pictured) and it appears on Cosmic Debris, a bonus disc with 2002’s Intergalactic 7″s. Emm Gryner recorded Ash’s Shining Light on her Songs of Love & Death album of Irish covers from 2005. David Bowie’s Ashes to Ashes has been covered loads of times since its original release in 1980. Recently, Warpaint were one of two acts to each record a version for We Were So Turned On: A Tribute to David Bowie. Last year’s post features another cover of Ashes to Ashes, loads more tunes from Ash and a couple of songs about Ash Wednesday. This one is dedicated to Dan O’Sullivan, a fellow fan of Ash and Wednesday
