The Northern Irish (NI) band, smashed out the huge singles ‘Girl From Mars’, ‘Kung Fu’, ‘Goldfinger’, ‘Angel Interceptor’ and ‘Oh Yeah’ on the album.
Ash and BMG are proud to reissue Ash’s debut LP ‘1977’ for the first time on stunning black and white splatter vinyl. This album has not been re-issued since it’s 1996 release, so will be an exciting prospect within the brit-rock community. 1977 was included in NME’s 500 best albums of all time, so resonates strongly with a wide audience. Upon release Ash drew critical comparisons to Buzzcocks, Dinosaur Jr. and Sonic Youth, whilst touring with allusive contemporaries Weezer and Smashing Pumpkins and many more.
This re-issue coincides with the release of 1977 on immersive Sony 360RA for the very first time. This unique mix will give fans insight into Tim Wheeler’s sonic spatial sphere bringing Ash’s incredible hits into the new age.
