Steal The Show EP
2011, Self released

 

 

Shane Pinnegar

 

Once upon a time every self respecting rock band wanted to be AC/DC, with their boogie rhythms, gravel-throated vocals, and searing solos… and then Airbourne came along with their distillation of the Accadacca sound and it seems now there are wave upon wave of bands wanting to be them instead!

 

Melbourne’s Fastrack rock hard and undoubtedly go down a storm in a dingy pub with sweat dripping from the ceiling and the smell of stake beer and piss reaching deep into your nostrils.

 

‘Generation Riot’, ‘Steal The Show’ and ‘Gonna Get You’ all stand out on this 6-track self-released EP, as crowd pleasing, chant-along riff workouts, but it’s their inability to bring anything new to the game which sees the CD getting a bit tired after a few listens.
