1977 by Ash: Interview with Rick McMurray
We interview Rick McMurray, drummer of Northern Irish rock band Ash about their stunning album 1977. It was released on 6 May 1996 by Infectious Records, with whom the band had signed following the release of several demo tapes. Ash released the mini-album Trailer in 1994, and followed it with three singles "Kung Fu", "Girl from Mars", and "Angel Interceptor", all of which would reappear on 1977. 1977 drew comparisons to the Buzzcocks, Dinosaur Jr., and Sonic Youth.
