Ash's full-length debut "1977" was released in 1996 and followed 1994's mini album "Trailer".
Named after the year they were all born (and in honour of the year Star Wars was released), "1977" displayed Wheeler and Hamilton's full-fledged love for all things extra-terrestrial and science fiction-related. In autumn 1997, guitarist Charlotte Hatherley was added to the existing trio. Hatherley was recruited from the band Nightnurse. The new quartet's sophomore effort - "Nu-Clear Sounds" was released in 1998 to a mixed critical reaction.
"Free All Angels" followed in April 2001, gaining a U.S. release in the following summer. Meltdown, the band's first Stateside release for Record Collection, arrived in spring 2005. A year later, and after nine years with Ash, Charlotte Hatherley announced her departure from the band to concentrate on a solo career. ...show less
