Northern Irish rockers Ash are set to become the first act to feature on a STAR WARS-related release after allowing their CLONES track to be used on a new LUCAS ARTS videogame.

The Star Wars-mad quartet's tune has been picked as the theme to REPUBLIC COMMANDO - the first time director George Lucas has ever used a band's song.

The group's album debut, 1977, was titled to represent both the year of founding members Tim Wheeler and MARK HAMILTON's birth and the year that Star Wars was released.
