4/13/2004 - Visqueen


Best friends Ben and Rachel fell together playing in the Seattle punk-pop favorite, HAFACAT. Scrapes and scratches later, and thankfully not before uncorking on bills with Men At Work and Corey Feldman, HAFACAT was sadly put to sleep. Their much anticipated debut remains buried with them. February 2001. Ben and Rachel began heavy focus on her closet of mink-lined powerpop songs. Thrilled with what was happening in their practice space, their smoke signal for a bassist found wisecrack maiden of rock & roll, Kim Warnick. History Lesson: Specialists in borderline Spinal Tap drummer syndrome (their first was Guns 'N Roses Duff McKagan, their last was The President's Jason Finn), The Fastbacks pop genius has inspired most of rock' s most influential. So much fun in fact, Pearl Jam invited them around the world opening in giant-arenas in 20 countries. The songs of Rachel and Ben hooked Kim. So much that she tucked in her 23rd year(!) as Fastbacks icon/lead singer/bassist and now weaves hilarious bulls**t tapestries full time for Visqueen.
