> I'd like to start by qualifying that I'm not an expert on Fast Eddie
Clarke or his contributions to Motorhead. At one time I did listen
to and own 'Motorhead: No Sleep 'til Hammersmith', but that was ages ago
when I had a much broader appreciation for vocal attributes. In other
words, I got sick of Lemmy's "elephant squealing". Well apparently
Eddie Clarke went solo and Fastway is his first effort.
> David King's vocals are powerful and pleasing to the ear. He sounds
a lot like Vince Neil of Motley Crue fame. As expected though, the
main attraction is Eddie Clarke's driving guitar rhythms and power riffs.
Jerry Shirley plays a solid drum with plenty of bass. Pete Way, formerly
of the UK hard rock band UFO, does a fine job on bass guitar.
> The entire album has a consistent sound, never straying too far from
the basic tempo established in the first song. Even so, there are
a couple of stand out tunes I'd like to mention: 'Another Day' is a fantastic
jam, 'Say What You Will' is top notch rock 'n' roll, and 'We Become One'
is easily the most memorable tune on this fledgeling release. In
the end, Fastway is another album that can easily be listened to from start
