Fastway: Unholy Spawn Of The Dual Metallicus

Sylvie Simmons, Creem, December 1983

NOTHING (except the last Journey single) lasts forever. Six-and-a-half years they were together. 6 and 1/2. Plenty of time to emerge as the Best Heavy Metal Band On The Face Of The Earth. Motorhead. The band that put the screw in screwdrivers; the band that put the wart in What Kind Of Band Do You Call This; the band that put the tack in aural attack; the band that brought tears to the eyes and hair to the chest every time you mouthed its name.
