FASTWAY – Trick Or Treat [Rock Candy Remastered & Reloaded] (2019) *EXCLUSIVE*

“Sammi Curr is a Rock ‘N’ Roll nightmare. His fans wont let him die. He wont let them live…” Do you remember that line from 1986’s horror flick ‘Trick Or Treat’? Fun stuff with a couple of cameos from Gene Simmons and Ozzy Osbourne.
Campy nostalgia aside, one thing about the movie remains outstanding all these years later — the FASTWAY soundtrack. “Trick Or Treat” has just been ‘Remastered & Reloaded’ by Rock Candy Records for all fans rejoice.

KATMANDU (Dave King of Fastway) – Katmandü [Japan Edition] Out Of Print

With the second Fastway album recently posted here in remastered form, one of you asked whatever happened with awesome singer Dave King after leaving the band. Well, Dave has been the vocalist for the punky / Irish Celtic sounding band Flogging Molly for more than 20 years and released their sixth studio album in 2017. But related to the musical style we love from him, after Fastway he formed KATMANDU at the end of the Eighties alongside guitarist Mandy Meyer (ex Krokus and later Asia & Gotthard).
Signed by major label Epic the short-lived band released their only album “Katmandü”, a great slice of bluesy, soulful rocking tunes. This Japanese edition is far superior in terms of sound quality, a very hard to find CD pressing.

FASTWAY – All Fired Up [Rock Candy remastered] (2019) *EXCLUSIVE*

For many even better than their great debut record, FASTWAY‘s second effort “All Fired Up” has recently been remastered by Rock Candy Records. And this is the kind of albums that really needed a proper ‘Remastered & Reloaded’ treatment, as the original CD press resulted awful flat. The vinyl LP always sounded great but the early ’80s transfers to CD were ‘cold’ and lifeless.
Just wait to hear this vital remastering, with all instruments / vocals coming out clear and huge.
