Twenty years ago: Ash 1977

It was twenty years ago that Irish alt-rockers / power poppers Ash put out their "first official album" 1977. And we just celebrated the fifteenth anniversary of Free All Angels' release. It's apparently a cool time in power pop history.

1977 contains so many great songs. They're the kind of songs that have the energy to get you moving, while containing addictive melodies and hooks, all with the kind of attitude that makes you glad to be alive.

Check out my favourite tunes from this remarkable album:

"Lose Control"


"Girl From Mars"

"Kung Fu"

"Oh Yeah"

"Angel Interceptor"
