There isn’t much more we can say about legendary Downpatrick rockers ASH that hasn’t already been said before.
One of the most popular and successful acts to ever hail from Northern Ireland, ASH burst onto the scene with their seminal debut album ‘1977’, an album which contained classics such as ‘Girl from Mars,’ ‘Goldfinger’, ‘Angel Interceptor’ and ‘Oh Yeah’.
The album hit number one in the British Album Charts and spawned four top 20 hits for the fledgling outfit.
Since then their career has spanned over 20 years and ASH have produced 18 top 40 singles, 2 UK Number 1 Albums (‘1977’ and ‘Free All Angels’) and a further 3 albums which all charted in the top 10.
In the conversation for the title of best band to ever come from Northern Ireland, ASH will headline Stendhal Festival on Friday August 11 and will no doubt reel off the hits in what promises to be one of the best ever headline sets in the history of the festival.
