- Fast Forward -

Fast Forward consisted of three band members, Laurence Williams, Pete Holmes and Al Zawawi. With songs written by Williams And Young the band were very popular in the local pop arena. Williams And Young, were looking for a pop direction to diversfy with the harder music of their other band, The Ocean. The Ocean eventually gave way to Fast Forward as their popularity and commitments grew. Long before WHY Productions as a concept took place, Tim Harris and Phil Young filmed some of the rehearsals and shows of Fast Forward, it is from these videos that the gallery below is formed. The music of Fast Forward was always well received and the friendship within the band made it probably the most enjoyable of all that we have worked in. After the departure of Al Zawawi, briefly Dave Faulkener joined on keyboards. The mix was never the same and Dave, Laurence and Phil went on to form The Dreaming Spires soon after.

Left: Fast Forward's Stereo Album. Sleeve design by Tim Harris. The album contains 19 songs, including all the songs form their first promo tape, as well as remixes and some rare tracks, such as 'Image Makers' and 'Arthur's Theme'. Includes the track 'Why When I Love You', that the band all danced to at Laurence's wedding. The album was produced by Ian Blunsdon and Laurence Williams at Timeless Studios.

If left clicking on the files above, they may open up in quick time (for some reason). Therefore you need to allow time for opening the song and I believe Quick Time Player. It seems a lot quicker to right click the songs, save them to a drive and then play them there. If you have any positive comments, please feel free to write this address - E-mail
