The former members of ‘No Hot Ashes’ spent the last 24 years holding down jobs and bringing up children, firmly believing that their rock and roll days in the sun were well and truly behind them…until one gig in 2013 changed their lives forever. In a few weeks time they’ll be playing the Welsh festival Hard Rock Hell and then supporting Foreigner and FM in Dublin and Belfast, with more gigs on the horizon.
No Hot Ashes were a much loved 80’s Belfast rock band that had great potential but luck unfortunately was against them. At one point they signed to GWR and mixed it with some names, supporting Steve Marriott, Mama’s Boys and Magnum along the way, but by 1990 the opportunities dried up and most of the band left London to satisfy their rock and roll frustrations on the covers circuit in Northern Ireland. They didn’t stop being musicians; just stopped dreaming of the big time… until they were asked to reform for a charity gig in 2013.
With old crowd favorites such as “I’m Back” and “Summer Rain” in the set the Ashes have also been writing new material and
hope to record at least one album before the end of the year.
Foreigner play the Waterfront Hall, Belfast on 1st April 2014.
