The Fastbacks - The Question Is No

The Fastbacks

The Question is No (1981-1992)

 A career-spanning comp from a grungy pop-punk band from Seattle that didn’t make it. Two girls, one guy, a rotating drummer, and lots of scrappy garage spunk. Their attitude is so winsome and love of rock’n’roll so infectious that it’s almost easy to overlook their garage-band borderline incompetence and inconsistent songwriting. Almost, but not quite. This is fun but only a handful of numbers stand out (“My Letters”, “Everything I Don’t Need”). ***
