Artist: The Fastbacks

Album: New Mansions In Sound

Appears On (Mixes): The Opposite Of Smoke Is Egg Whites

Song Notes: The Fastbacks appeared on the other mix CD set, but looking over the liners, I realized I didn't mention hardly anything about them at all. Anyway, The Fastbacks were Kurt Bloch's other band (or, well, I suppose, technically, The Young Fresh Fellows'd be his other band, since he formed The Fastbacks in 1979 and joined the Fellows in 1990 after they'd been going for quite a while). Kurt wrote all the songs and played lead guitar, and Kim Warnick (later of Visqueen, but now retired from Rock) sang and played bass, and Lulu Gargiulo sang and played guitars. They always had a bit of a revolving-door drummer; on this song (from New Mansions In Sound), it's Mike Musburger (from The Posies). The Fastbacks broke up in 2002, when Kim left the band, and Kurt went on to Sgt. Major (though I think they'd been together a little bit during the time the Fastbacks were still technically together), and I think Lulu went back to photography, though I'm not sure. - Rev.
