    Formed in Downpatrick, Northern Ireland by Tim Wheeler (vocals and guitar), Mark Hamilton (bass) and Rick McMurray (drums), Ash released their first studio album '1977' and were then joined by Charlotte Hatherley (guitar) for a further 3 studio albums 'Nu-Clear Sounds', 'Free All Angels' and 'Meltdown'. Charlotte left the band in 2006 and the band went on to record and release 'Twilight of the Innocents' before launching the innovative A-Z series which saw the band release a single every fortnight for a year. Bloc Party's Russell Lissack has joined the band on stage since 2010.


    October 2011 saw Ash play some special live shows to mark the release of 'The Best of Ash' and Charlotte performed with the band once more for the UK tour. The shows included the four piece playing the seminal "Free All Angels" Album in its entirety and a "Best Of" set.

    Forming as teenagers in Northern Ireland in the early '90s (and naming themselves after the first short word in the dictionary that they liked), Ash came to U.K. prominence in the middle of the decade, at the height of Blur vs. Oasis mania. Though the group would ultimately be lumped in with those bands - 1977 co-producer Owen Morris had even previously worked on the Gallagher brothers' own star-making debut, Definitely Maybe - the group were, in their own way, as much of a reaction to the Anglophilia of the musical moment as the Britpop movement originally was a response to the international dominance of American grunge.
