Northern Irelands favourite teenage sons were inspired to form a band based on their love for Nirvana. Ash proved them to be masters at 3 minute power pop singles. Fresh from school they scored a succession of chart hits, ‘Kung Fu’, ‘Girl from Mars’, ‘Angel Interceptor’ to name just a few. Despite their Nirvana adulation their music bore more of a resemblance to that of the Ramones, very short ultra-catchy glories pop songs. Although they did mine that Nirvana influence further on second album ‘Nu Clear Sounds’ much to the turn off from critics and fans alike. A return to the Ramones influenced single with ‘Burn Baby Burn’ and ‘Shining Light’ with album number 3, Free All Angels. Album number 4 ‘Meltdown’ was recorded in the same studio as ‘Nevermind’. Dave Grohl also appears in their yet unreleased slasher film. Trailor is my favorite but 1977 has all the big hits.
