“WHEN GUITARIST ‘FAST’ Eddie Clarke left Motorhead in 1982, few would have expected him to go on to eclipse the success of his former band. Motörhead, although hugely successful as a live act and feverishly lauded in the UK media, had not enjoyed significant record sales in North America; not unsurprising considering the raw ferocity of their sound. For Clarke this was an opportunity to take stock and build a musical outfit that could break into that market with a far more wide screen approach. It was a smart move as Fastway’s debut album struck gold in the USA, elevating their profile far beyond Motörhead’s niche appeal.
Surrounding himself with a mixture of well respected band members, including former Humble Pie drummer Jerry Shirley, ex-Taste bassist Charlie McCracken and, sparkling new discovery, Irish vocalist Dave King, the band immersed themselves in blues rock but with a contemporary edge. It was a sound that won much respect and fitted in nicely with the emerging commercial interest in hard rock. Continuing their progress they recorded ‘All Fired Up’, a record that stylistically mirrored the band’s debut album and was produced once again by industry legend Eddie Kramer (Kiss, Hendrix, Humble Pie) who had so successfully guided the previous record.
Issued in July 1984, ‘All Fired Up’ was positively received, getting off to a good start and attracting rave reviews. The album boasts a selection of tough, no-nonsense tracks, including such gems as ‘Steal The Show’, ‘Tell Me’, ‘If You Could See’ and the title track. It was a record that further enhanced Fastway’s reputation as one of the best band’s of the 80s.”
