1996 will be remembered by this man for two things: England's thumping of the Netherlands at Euro '96 (I forget what happened after that), and the release of Ash's debut album 1977, with its singles 'Girl From Mars', 'Oh Yeah' and 'Goldfinger'. I sold my Master System to buy it (along with Mellon Collie... and some other shit I don't remember). Classic times.
REVISITED! The trio will play the album from start to finish at London's Roundhouse on September 5; tickets go on sale this Friday, May 16 with booking fees bringing the price to £19.77 apiece. Also expect: b-sides and perhaps a smattering of subsequent hits on the night.
“Who knows,” say the band in a MySpace bulletin, “we'll maybe even throw in sick party!”
Currently working on new material in New York, Ash no longer look this young...
