Artist: Ash
Title: Girl From Mars
Notes: First hit for the band formed in Downpatrick, Northern Ireland, though 'Kung Fu' reached no. 57 earlier in the year.
Tim Wheeler (b. 4 Jan 1977, Downpatrick, N Ireland ; lead vox/rhythm guitar) and Mark Hamilton (b. 21 Mar 1977, Lisburn N. Ireland; bass guitar) formed 'Vietnam' when they received guitars for Christmas aged just 12 years. In 1992 they joined forces with Rick McMurray (11 Jul 1975, Larne, Northern Ireland; drums/percussion) and the first incarnation of Ash was born. Their first single was 'Jack' in Feb 1994. At the V97 festival, Ash unveiled their new member, Charlotte Hatherley (10 June 1979, London; lead guitar/backing vox), formerly of London-based band Night Nurse.
