Fastway is the first album by the band, Fastway. An '80s British hard-rock/heavy metal band originally formed by ex-Motorhead guitarist "Fast" Eddie Clarke and UFO bassist Pete Way, thus the name FAST-WAY. Unfortunately Pete left before the first recording for what turned out to be a very short stint with Ozzy Osbourne. Fastway also featured ex-Humble Pie drummer, Jerry Shirley and a young singer, David King. King went on to form Katmandu.
It's amazing how much a band can change in just three albums. "Waiting For the Roar," despite it's heavy title, is no where near as heavy, as British, or as original as the band's debut. Waiting For The Roar a typical metal album from this time. Maybe there is too much synth… but hey, that's what was in style at the time.
All Fired Up is the second album by the hard rock band Fastway. It was released in 1984. The follow-up to the debut came only a year later and followed in similar tracks to the original. Like the debut, Kiss/Jimi Hendrix producer Eddie Kramer was brought in to produce. Together they created an album with just a bit more depth than the debut. Some songs had a strong blues-rock vibe, such as "Telephone" and "Station". Others have hard driving Led Zeppelin vibe. "Hurtin Me" in particular had a very Zeppelin-esque sound.
2009 three CD set. As former UFO, Fastway and Waysted bassist Pete Way prepares to hang up his guitar, the time is right to highlight his fantastic solo material. This collection of three of Way's solo releases showcases not only a hard-drinking, hard drug-taking Rock legend but also a great live performer and a great songwriter, too. Disc One contains the album The Plot (featuring Michael Schenker). Disc Two features Live 2002. Disc Three contains the album Amphetamine. 33 tracks. Mischief.
Mechanix is the tenth album by the British hard rock band UFO; it was released in 1982. The contemporary music-press adverts on the album's release carried the tag-line 'Mechanix: it will tighten your nuts'. Immediately after the completion of the tour in support of the album, founding member and bassist Pete Way left the band to join former Motörhead guitarist "Fast" Eddie Clarke in Fastway.
