Fastway is the first album by the band, Fastway. An '80s British hard-rock/heavy metal band originally formed by ex-Motorhead guitarist "Fast" Eddie Clarke and UFO bassist Pete Way, thus the name FAST-WAY. Unfortunately Pete left before the first recording for what turned out to be a very short stint with Ozzy Osbourne. Fastway also featured ex-Humble Pie drummer, Jerry Shirley and a young singer, David King. King went on to form Katmandu.

Excellent debut album from Motorhead guitarist Fast Eddie Clarke. Their sound is not quite as heavy and harsh as Motorhead, but it's not exactly pop rock either. Actually Fastway fit in neatly with the NWOBHM invasion that was beginning to take over the world in 1983. Fastway brings in a lot of the classic 70's hard rock sound.
