Ash – Trailer

27 09 2011

Listened: Monday July 18

It’s very 90s sounding, but Trailer really takes me back. I don’t remember how I got introduced to Ash back in high school – I think it was because they used to play their early songs on Live 105 – but I’m glad I did.

They’re about the same age I am, so that was pretty cool to hear  people that young on Live 105 at the time, since a lot of the bands they played were elder statemens/women of Modern Rock. I can hear the Smashing Pumpkins and Nirvana influences pretty clearly in the guitars, as well as the Clash and the Ramones in the lyrics.

I’m also glad they’re not above having lyrics like “Bang, shang-a-lang”; they make it work.
