Artist: The Fast Romantics, Album: The Fast Romantics, Song: How Do You?

The Fast Romantics are a rock band from Calgary, Alberta originally, but now they reside in Toronto.  They are Matthew Angus, Jeffrey Lewis, Alan Reain and Laurna Germscheid.  The band formed in 2007 and won a regional talent contest which enabled them to produce their self titled debut in 2009.    The band has toured the country a couple of times and recently played some shows in the U.S. including SXSW in Austin, Texas.  They were a finalist in one of Spin Magazine's contests and were joined onstage in Calgary at a Holt Renfrew store opening gig by actor, Jeremy Piven (Entourage), who played drums with the band.  The Fast Romantics have also had some of their tunes included in movies and television.  The band released an EP in 2010 and it was produced by ex-Veal bassist Howard Redekopp (see blog 4/24/11).  You can follow the band at  How Do You? is a dirty, little British sounding rocker off their debut with addictive hand claps.  You can check out the track on You Tube (  You can purchase the band's self titled debut on Itunes.  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
