The band who Ashbury remind me most of is The Outlaws, from the guitar sound to the vocals. Check out their epic track "Green Grass & High Tides".

I have to add Granmax´s "Kiss Heaven Goodbye" to the list.
If only just for the song "Prince of the Southern Ice". Awesome!

Glad to see someone (ION BRITTON) mention "the real" ASIA - as I hold both their albums as being sadly overlooked classics. Btw have anyone here heard the ASIA-precursor Whitewing? If so, are they any good? Too soft?

Sounds interesting (the Saracen connection). I have to check it out. Is there a CD-reissue available? I have both Asia albums on one CD - official but remastered from vinyl as the original master tapes were lost if I remember right (I have never actually seen the original vinyls).

If you mean Saracen re-issue, check this link & look under "our artists"

I suggest 70ies Texan Steel by Impeccable...not really a connection with Ashbury, but this is a killer band indeed! Oh, and their 7" as Axxe is wonderful also, one should check it out if quality is his/her request..
Black signs on my monitor, great bitching and fake words, Avenger is here, the craziest "modest" of all modsss...FTOU!!

Does that mean that you could help me with downloading it or something like that? If so that would be awesome! (sorry about me being a technical idiot)

Good call, Impeccable were great, and definitely cut from the same cloth.
Their 7" as Axxe is even better in my opinion, you can d/l that one from live & otherwise blog.
