Slightly less obscure than, say, Uriah Heep in the pantheon of overlooked '70s hard-rock bands, British prog-rockers Wishbone Ash's harmony-laden dual-guitar attack predated Thin Lizzy, the group often credited with inventing it. Of course, Wishbone Ash also perfected the slow beginning/fast ending rock anthem.

Only guitarist Andy Powell remains from the group's '70s heyday, but despite an ungodly number of lineup changes, he's managed to keep Ash on the road and recording. The band's current lineup is Finland's guitar wizard Muddy Manninen, long-time bassist Bob Skeat and drummer Joe Crabtree.

The band's latest album, Elegant Stealth, is the same as it ever was - Gibson Flying V guitars turned up to 11 and good ol' British vocal and instrumental bombast.

While Wishbone Ash's Elegant Stealth Tour brings the band to Tacoma's Jazzbones March 20, the band will concentrate on its third album Augus - considered to be its greatest release - and includes such hits as "The King Will Come" and "Blowin' Free."  Tickets are $25 and available here.

JAZZBONES, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 8 P.M., $25, 2803 SIXTH AVE., TACOMA, 253.396.9169
