The Ash are
ABOUT YOUAsh officially formed in 1992. Before Ash formed. Mark and Tim were in a Iron Maiden cover band called 'Vietnam' who formed in 1989. All 3 members have displayed their distaste for the band however and they dubbed themselves as "the worst band in County Down". They have also mentioned in interviews of a past drummer who was 19 before Rick joined the band. They created three demo tapes that year, Solar Happy in June, Shed in September, and the Home Demo in November. These tapes featured their earliest material and the first recordings of some songs that were later on their 1994 release, Trailer, including "Intense Thing", "Get Out", "Obscure Thing," and their future single, "Jack Names the Planets"
