Ye Olde Metal: Fastway's Fastway

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The 2012 Martin Popoff short eBook about Fastway's album Fastway.

Fastway's self-titled first is just a shockingly good stadium rock record with just enough raw to keep it one foot in the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal. This is the story of its making and the birth of the band, as told by lead singer Dave King, drummer Jerry Shirley and a l'il Pete "Way" Way and Biff Byford thrown in for spice.

I had a particular fondness toward writing this one up, as one of the coolest earliest big city (well, b-city, Spokane), concerts I ever saw was Fastway backing Saxon backing the mighty Maiden, right at the latter's creative apex.

Plus meeting Dave King, transformed into a sort of Pogue and touring his successful and highly creditable Flogging Molly band... well, he's probably the only autographs on my Fastway collection I'll ever see.

Icing on the cake for this short (but cheap at a buck!) smile back a while... some sweet Rich Galbraith photos and all manner of memorabilia shot, helping bring the story to life, at least, one hopes, lively enough to make you scurry away and re-play this fine and fiery record.
