Fastway, After Midnight

You can't make Motorhead Rocktober feature artist and not bestow the same honor to offshoot band Fastway. Sure the movie Trick or Treat sucks in retrospect but Fastway did rock. Enjoy Fast Eddie, Sammi Curr (played by the late Tony Fields) and play it loud. Fastway is todays Rocktober feature artist.

I remember for a few fleeting weeks this movie had the status of The Greatest Movie Ever, then it opened in theaters and quickly lost that status. Except amongst us metalheads who still proclaimed it awesome in the hopes that it would spawn a cottage industry of Metal Movies featuring Dio, Dokken and Accept.

I still wanna go to a Floggin Molly show just to have the lead singer autograph my Fastway LP.

I heard Say What You Will the other day on Hair Nation over the weekend....such a great sing along song. I wonder had I'd known Trick or Treat star Tony Fields was a former Solid Gold dancer if I'd have liked the movie as much. A google search of Tony Fields tells us he died of AIDS in 1995 so I'm guessing he's dressed in gold lame and dancing beside Robbin Crosby and Ray Gillan in the all metal AIDS heaven revue.

Lemmy is just crying out for a VH-1 reality show
