The Fastbacks: In the Winter (1989)



So before taking a break to offer encouragement to those in the path of Hurricane Sandy yesterday, we were talking about great Fastbacks albums (more HERE). Which leads us to today's question about your favourite single/E.P. by The Fastbacks. Their first single "It's Your Birthday" or Play Five of Their Favorites would be my amongst my first choices but the band released a veritable slew of excellent singles over their carrier such as this awesome seven inch that puts their mournful-yet-hummable track, "In the Winter", in the spotlight!






So, MRML readers, what's your favourite Fastbacks single? Let us know in the COMMENTS section!

  1. Dear Fastbacks fans
    Don't forget to vote with your words, if you'd like this series to continue!
    The ratio of COMMENTS to downloads was pretty pitiful on the last post, and even the weather can't account for THAT.
    Sincerely,
