Ash Biography

Ireland's punk-pop trio Ash first formed in 1989 when childhood mates Tim Wheeler and Mark Hamilton got guitars for Christmas and established the metal act, Vietnam. Nothing more than something for kicks, Vietnam switched to Ash in the early '90s as Wheeler (guitar/vocals), Hamilton (bass), and Rick "Rock" McMurray (drums) aimed to be something more serious. They shared a love for the raw British punk of the Buzzcocks and crafted their musical talents to take the Brit-pop scene by storm at the start of the decade. NME was swooning over these "teen punkers from Belfast" and by 1994 Ash had signed to Infectious Records to issue the Trailer EP later that fall.
