  • Hotpress Cover - August, 2002
    "It's all about broken down tour buses, Alan Partridge, high speed collisions, Moby, broken ribs, Mina Suvari, MTV stars and David Bowie as Ash launch a sonic assault on America. So riddle me this: can Ireland's hardest-working rock'n'roll outfit crack the big one?"

  • Tav's US diary - Spring/Summer, 2002
