Fastball - Intense care

Why band name Fastball - Bull Durham movie posterIt wasn't easy was for the power pop band from Austin, Texas to strike up under a nice band name.

At first performances were given under such names as Star 69, Magneto, Magneto USA and Starchy before they became Fastball, after the band's favorite smut movie. The script of that erotic drama is said to also contain a fair amount of baseball. 'It's like a really raunchy Bull Durham', says guitarist Miles Zuniga in Entertainment Weekly magazine.

In case you didn't already know: Bull Durham is a baseball movie, according to Wikipedia 'rated R for profanity, intense sexuality, and nudity'.

Active: 1994-present, USA
