FASTPLANTS, THE: Spread the Stoke: LP

Sep 20, 2017

The Beer City website describes The Fastplants as skate punk, but this is a band applying a strong Motörhead-influenced rock’n’roll vibe to its music rather than the more punk/metal-based shredding sound I associate with skating. This doesn’t blow me away but is solid enough to make me want to listen to every now and again. I’ve since listened to the band’s contribution to a split LP with Daniel Wax Off and it’s in the same ballpark as Spread the Stoke. It’s similarly something I’ll turn to on occasion. –Rich Cocksedge (Beer City,
