BAMM.TV FEATURED ARTIST – ASH – A LOOK BACK

Posted on: No Comments

We’re massively excited to feature Ash as our Featured Artist this week, in order to tie in with the release of a couple of exclusive BAMM.tv performances from this three-piece Brit-rock legend. The first one – ‘Shining Light’ – was unleashed last week, and there’s a second one all ready for you to watch later this week. Excited? Course you are.

In the meantime, however, we thought we’d take a few days to celebrate all things Ash … beginning with a look at their discography to date. Let’s join hands and relax in a blue shimmery light as we Quantum Leap back through musical history …

TRAILER (1994)

For those of us who have been following Ash’s musical trajectory since the beginning, here’s a chilling little reminder of your own mortality: ‘Trailer’, the debut album from a bunch of young Northern Ireland upstarts barely past the point of their school exams, is now a whopping twenty years old. Time flies when you’re having fun. Or even when you’re not.

Luckily, all that’s needed to nullify such morbid musings of mortality (check out our alliteration skills) is to take another listen to ‘Trailer’, and to be blown away by the sheer energy and verve of the band’s first long-player. It’s not as polished as later work, obviously, and the songwriting is a mere foreshadow of what’s to come – but, just as a teenage Metallica arrived fully-formed with 1983’s ‘Kill ‘Em All,’ we can safely say that ‘Trailer’ is the confident, bellowed announcement of a great new talent.

There’s more after the jump …
