REWIND: Ash - 'Lose Control'

More wonderful music from 1996 as RW/FF takes you aboard a musical TARDIS on a journey through musical history. If you weren't around or were too young to remember the mid 90s, consider this a lesson of enlightenment. If you (like me) were lucky enough to experience it all first time around, then these posts make a fine nostalgic blast from the blast.

Another classic Britpop-era album that has recently reached it's 20th birthday is Ash's punk-rock flavoured '1977'. The title refers to a year of three events that shaped the band: the births of two of the band-members, the year the first punk albums were released and the release of Star Wars. The album opens with the sound of a TIE fighter, and the final song ends with a choral version of the Star Wars theme. At the end of the album there was a hidden track, which was essentially just a recording of band members vomiting. The album was the band's first full-length release (following the min-album 'Trailer') and was released in May 1996, reaching number 1 in the UK album charts. The album opens with the thrilling 'Lose Control', which set the tone nicely with its irresistible riffs and blinding firepower.
