the Ash and the Melon

read the most fantastic thing the other day, can't remember where, gist of it was that - far from dub being the one thing that united the members of Public Image Ltd, it was actually a shared love of Wishbone Ash!

it was from the horse's mouth too, Johnny R himself...

their one moment of moderate sublimity

(he says having not listened exhaustively to the discography in all honesty)

(but i'd take a small wager that was and is in fact their one moment of moderate sublimity)

studio is even better - so fresh and so clean

listening to it now for the first time in a while I feel increasingly certain it was a source for Blind Melon when they came up with this (their one moment of moderate sublimity)
