Interviews: These Fast Times


In this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Pop Punk/Punk Rock band These Fast Times from Canada. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?

Originally we wanted to be called "Excited School Girls" or something to that effect, but we realized that searching for that name online could potentially bring up an astounding amount of porn sites, so we rethought about it and decided to change it. These Fast Times comes from the lyrics of the song "Fast Times" by Bouncing Souls, from their Comet album. At one point in the song they sing "These Fast Times" and Ryan being a big Bouncing Souls fan always wanted to name a band after that phrase. After hearing the name we agreed that it would be a great name for us, seeing as we play fast and everything was coming together for our band very fast!

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We all grew listing to pop-punk bands like Blink 182, Sum 41, and New Found Glory. we all pretty much like the same music so it was only natural for us to play that genre.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Jeff and Ryan were in a band called W!ndslow prior to this. Ryan and Jason went to the same high school but never really spoke till they joined this band. Thomas answered an add on Kijiji and we fell in love with him after meeting him.

4. Each band member favorite band?

Jason: Amber Pacific

Jeff: Against me!

Thomas: Red Hot Chili Peppers

Ryan: Bouncing Souls

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Jeff says they come to him in a dream and that they're sent to him from God himself. the rest of the band is pretty skeptical of this.

6. Where was your last gig? 

Our last gig was a place called "Piranha Bar" in Montreal. we opened for Michael Graves. it was such a great show!

7. Where would you like to perform? 

A huge stadium to hundreds of thousands of people literally anywhere in the world!

8. Whom would you like to perform with?

There's such a large number of bands we'd LOVE to play with, but the top 5 would be: Blink-182, Bouncing souls, MXPX, Against me! and the foo fighters. those would be amazing shows to play. 

9. Whom not? 

We'll play with anyone who wants to play with us. We love playing for our fans and for new people/ future fans.

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that? 

None of us get nervous when we go on stage, we love what we do and we practice A LOT! the only tip we have is practice as much as you can humanly do. the practice some more! also most of the people won't hear the mess-ups but they will see the nervousness come through, so just go out and have fun!

11. What bands have inspired you the most? 

As a band, I'd say Blink 182, New Found Glory, No Use For a Name, Goldfinger and all our favorite bands that we stated before.

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for? 

We haven't had too many weird things asked of us. but they do ask us to take our shirts off while we play a lot. so I guess that's the weirdest.. here's hoping people read this and start asking us to do weird stuff lol.

13. What do you think of your fans? 

We love them! they're great and always ready to party after our shows. I wouldn't want to do this without them and we'd do pretty much anything for them!

14. What do you think of our site? 

We like it a lot. the free music is amazing, and you can check out a bunch of new bands. we also like that the articles are classed by genres and sub-genres. You can really find news about the types of music you'd want to find out about. Good job on the site!
