Having achieved success and celebrity before he even got his A-Level results (which he opened live on Radio One), Tim Wheeler has had an amazing musical career. Having only hit 30 this year he and his Ash bandmates are in a virtually unique position in the music industry? they’ve been doing it long enough to get really good at it, without getting so long in the tooth that they’ve lost their hunger or relevance. Wheeler thinks Ash’s most recent and fifth album, ?Twilight of the Innocents’, is? easily our most artistically accomplished and adventurous album yet’. Not only is Tim the frontman of Ash, he’s also a talented producer and songwriter.

I’ve chosen to cover Pixies for The JD Set for a few reasons. The first being that they’re one of my favorite bands of all time and had an especially big influence during the years when we were starting Ash
