Too Fast For Love

The Fastbacks "K Street"

The Fastbacks are really a curious case. Although they disbanded in 2001, they were a rock band from Seattle that had been around since 1979. And yet thru the record industry's raping of the city's entire music scene from the 90s on, the Fastbacks were always passed over. What it makes it so strange is that they're a better band than anyone else who came out of there. Perhaps it was their age. If that was the case they should have just started selling their songs to younger, better looking bands like Candlebox back in the day. Hey at least radio would have improved!

"K Street" comes from the Fastbacks' 1991 Sub Pop release "...And His Orchestra". An interesting tidbit I found about the Fastbacks: one of their many ex-drummers was Duff McKagan of Guns N Roses fame. I'm surprised that dude is still able to stand up and play the bass, much less sit down and play drums.
