MORE ABOUT FAST ACTIN' FUSES
The Fast Actin' Fuses were formed in Boston, MA in early 2001. Comprised of five guys who had been around the block a few times in different bands, the Fuses were drawn together by their collective interest in making music that combined all of their favorite influences. After a few rehearsals it was obvious that they had stumbled onto an original & exciting blend of all of their favorite styles, a sort of Punk inspired Heavy Rock. In their first three years of existence Fast Actin' Fuses played numerous venues all over Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine and New York. Playing shows with national acts like the Amazing Crowns, Division of Laura Lee, High On Fire & Player's Club as well as numerous local bands, the Fuses have earned their reputation as a ferocious live act. The Boston Phoenix wrote, "the tunes are like AC/DC outtakes that've been sent away to Poison Idea's charm school." Playing live is what the members of F.A.F. love to do and it shows. Rock scribe Sleazegrinder claimed, "When the FAF get going, they're a fuckin' steamroller of bad boy boogie." We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
The Fuses released their first CD, "Sayonara", on Boston's Rodent Popsicle Records in June of 2002 to critical acclaim. According to the Noise "It's Alice Cooper if he hadn't been kidding". The Northeast Performer Magazine stated "This music is mean and ugly, and that is precisely what makes it so good. It all works to perfection, and the Fast Actin' Fuses have produced a killer record that commands attention, and demands repeat listening." Fast Actin' Fuses have also had songs featured on compilations from Traktor 7 Records, TKO Records and Rodent Popsicle Records, with a song in the works for Sleazegrinder's forthcoming "Cock n Roll 2".
