|For those who are not familiar with Fastloaders, they are a band from Norway who are known for their brilliant renditions of computer game music - particularly from the 8-bit era (with a large penchant for C64 tunes).|
FastLoaders are the band behind Ninja Musicology, Progressive 64, Rock Hubbard, and the Ninja Musicology "Live from the Dungeons" CD & Blu-ray.
They also performed live at Back in Time 2015 in Brighton, in 2016 at London's Underworld club where they shared the stage with Ben Daglish, and in 2018 where they performed classic C64 and Amiga hits at their own Back in Time 2018 event in Bergen, sharing the stage with Chris Huelsbeck and Reyn Ouwehand! More recently they were at the Back In Time 2019 event held on Oct 18/19 in Bergen.
And now they have a kickstarter project for the first time to create a CD of no less than 30 Amiga classics including; Super Cars II, Shadow of the Beast, Unreal, Turrican, Castle Master, Ghouls n' Ghosts, Battle Squadron, Lost Patrol, Golden Axe, Final Fight, X-Out, Dogs of War, Lotus, Cannon Fodder, Hero Quest, Chuck Rock, LED Storm.
Any Amiga fans looking for a rocking album of some classic Amiga tunes should check out the kickstarter page for more information on the album, as well as videos of their work at some of these events.
I attended the London Underworld "Ninja Musicology" gig back in October 2016 and it was fantastic. The accompanying 3 CD collection of the Last Ninja music they played is a welcome part of any music collection.
