A lost classic of late 70s Brit PopPunk
Considering that the album contains 17 tracks and no filler, one has to wonder how the band was able to hide so many wonderful songs. It's truly amazing that The Fast Cars Lp took so many years to be released. To those only familiar with the band's sole original 7" release, this Longplay will be a real treat. Each and every song is bound to get your toes a-tappin' because the Fast Cars formula for short punky pop songs heavy on the hooks never seems to go out of style. With song titles giving equal nods to the Buzzcocks ("What Can I Do?") and the Beatles ("Please Please Please") The Fast Cars wear their influences on their sleeve but manage to construct a sound that's completely fresh and original at the same time, even 30-some years later.
