12.19.03 - Recording done!

Well, it's official Fastball is finished recording. The new album will be released on Rykodisc Records sometime early next year. Thanks to Shinobiman over at Fastball Red Lights, for this latest news. Head on over to his site via the link on this page to read the full report. (source: Red Lights)


News early this morning from Chillie that recording is going well for the band. He also reports, as I had earlier in the month, that Charlie Sexton is no longer producing the new album. Instead he confirmed that Mike McCarthy is the new producer working with the guys. Mike's name had indirectly been relayed to me earlier in the month, but I got the idea from the person who relayed the info. at the time, that it was kind of hush hush, don't tell right now type of thing. So that's why I didn't report it, but did indicate that they had some impressive credits. And Mike McCarthy does have some good credits as a engineer/producer/mixer, working with artists like Lee Ann Womack, Mark Chesnutt, The Statler Brothers, Waylon Jennings, BeBe & CiCi Winans, as well as Texas groups Superego and Spoon. Mike also co-produced a '94 compilation CD called "Free For All" - vol. 1, along with Bill Ham and Paul Minor (close friend of the band who produced Live From Jupiter Records), highlighting live performances from the Hole In the Wall's Rock 'n' Roll Free For All - features "Make Your Mama Proud" by the then Magneto USA. (source: Chillie's Fastball Music Web Page)

Also TINML reports that Miles and Tony played an unadvertised acoustic show back on Friday Nov. 7, at Mucky Duck in Houston, TX.


Well folks, the word now is that Charlie Sexton is not going to be producing the bands forthcoming record. I don't know any names of other prospective producers, but it's possible that it might be someone with some impressive credits to their name.


Weird, several hours after getting that last update up I received an e-mail from Chillie with some further news that he got from Tony at a recent show he played at. Tony did say that Charlie Sexton will be producing the new album. He said that the band will be entering the studio in the next couple of weeks, following Joey's return to the US from the Young Heart Attack tour. Their recording should be completed by the end of November, and are looking at a possible February 2004 release. Thanks for passing that info. on Chillie. (source: Chillie's Fastball Music Web Page)


I was informed this past Wednesday by a close friend and colleague of the band that it is very likely that Austin local Charlie Sexton will be producing the new Fastball album. He also states that Koch Records will likely be the band's new label **NOTE: (10/19) Sorry this was posted so late but my hosting service was upgrading or something and I haven't been able to get this up until now. The site was up, but I couldn't get onto the ftp, I don't know what was up.**

Site News: I've also added a tab for Perfect World, by Copper.


Site News: New guitar tablatures added for Boomerang, Freeloader Freddy, and Mercenary Girl. Thanks to Copper for tabbing these.

10.08.03 - Talullah!

What's that you say. Well Talullah is a new side project that Tony is a part of. The group also features Matt Hubbard, Jason Enright, and a couple other guys. The group plays the Easy Rhino bar and grill in Austin this Thursday Oct. 9. The article this information comes from also says "before Scalzo warms up the new Fastball album with newlywed Miles Zuniga," indicating that Fastball may be playing afterward. It may also relate to the following news bit. Check over at fansite Red Lights for some further current news on Fastball. I'm gonna make you go over there and visit Tyler's site in case you haven't yet been. Check it out as it's coming along nicely. (source: The Austin Chronicle - 10/03/03)


A fan slipped me this bit of news earlier this afternoon. Miles and his fiancee Kelly Ramsey were married back on Sept. 20. Sorry girls, he's been snatched up. You're just too late. Well let me be the first to say this: CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! MILES & KELLY. We all wish you guys the best in your new union together. May your new future be filled with fun and joy, oh yeah, and have a kick ass honeymoon (or hope you had one, if you've already been that is)!! (claps and cheers all around)


Site News: Sorry for the lack of many updates here recently. This semester in school is just killing my spare time with all the projects and papers. But anyway here's one, nothing new, but I've updated the tour pages, sorry no new dates, but I've gotten past shows updated with set lists, review and such that I have. If anyone has anything to contribute for any show listed or older shows not listed, please send it on in, 'cause I'd love to have a really good gigography going.


Site News: At a fan request I have added the radio edit of Fire Escape to the multimedia page. It is therefore the new featured download.


Site News: Added compilations listing (partial listing). Added fan comments for the songs 'Airstream' and 'Secret Agent Love.'


Site News: Added a new tab for the song "High Low," thanks to Copper. Updated notes or release info. for the songs Jenny (867-5309), Back Door, Human Torch, Red Light, Secret Agent Love, and the "Make Your Mama Proud" album page.


Information for those who had ordered the 'Live From Jupiter Records' CD. I received an e-mail yesterday from Jason at Jupiter Records. He says that all orders for the CD have been filled and shipped, so if you've ordered one and have yet to receive it, it should be on its way. He apologizes for any delays. Depending on where you live it could take a week or so to arrive. If after a couple of weeks you've still not received it, please e-mail or call to the store.


Site News: For the next round of Featured Audio I thought it'd be nice to highlight one of our regular downloads. Fastball and John Wesley Hardings cover of the Stealers Wheel song "Star." If you haven't heard it yet it's a great cover. Also I've put up 5 new wallpapers for everyone's enjoyment. See the Multimedia pages. And just as a reminder to all fans to support the band by also paying visit to the other active fan sites - Chillie's and Red Lights, as well as the recent tribute page for the Jupiter CD from Alison. And of course the currently evolving Official site. Let's keep this community strong and growing.


Shinobiman's Red Lights fan site is now back online. Be sure to check it out through the links page when you get a minute. It's looking a whole lot sharper than the original and I can't wait to see it as it gets more complete. Rock on Tyler, and keep up the good work.


Tyler (Shinobiman) tells me that his site, formerly known as Music To Live By, is currently undergoing an update/redesign. You may recall his site was host to his own fan-made music video for the song 'Falling Upstairs.' He hopes to bring the site, which will be renamed to Red Lights: A Fastball Tribute Site, up to the quality and full operation he intended the original to be when it was started back in February and March. Ambitious as he is, look for this to be another good addition to the small, but tight knit, Fastball fan ring. See the links page for the link to his site.


Site News: For all you guitar plays you might be glad to know that the tabs page is up and the tabs from the old version of the site are available again. Also I have put up the chords and intro tab for the song 'Some Day.' It's not a complete tab, but it is complete enough to play. Hope you enjoy. Tabs can be accessed via the tab page in the Songs & Lyrics section, and via the individual songs themselves.


Site News: Lyrics and info. for Red Light and Secret Agent Love have now been added. Also I would like to start adding fan input to the songs and/or albums. So if you've got an interpretation or meaning of a song (from your point of view), or just have a good comment on a song or an album, head on over the message board, post it and it will soon be put up on the site.

Update 2: Updated the Album 6 info. with the latest new songs. Also added a bit more info. on Red Light and I Get High.


Site News: Lyrics for 4 of the new songs have been added to the Songs & Lyrics page of the site. The lyrics for the rest of the songs shall follow in the next day or so.


Well if you haven't noticed the official Fastball website now has a new piece added to it. Get on over there now a check a roulette of new songs: 'Airstream,' 'I Get High,' 'Some Day,' 'Perfect World,' 'We're On Our Way,' 'High Low,' 'Red Light,' and 'Secret Agent Love.' Full lyrics and info. to come soon. I've also just received an e-mail from Miles saying that there were new songs up. He also says that he and the rest of the guys appreciate all the support, and that the site looks great.


Site News: Hope everyone enjoyed the acoustic version of "Vampires." As per a fan request the next featured download is a live acoustic cover of the Everly Brothers classic "(All I have to do is) Dream." This version was taken from the acoustic show from McCabe's Guitar Shop.


Site News: Re-uploaded the "Vampires" acoustic download. Apparently the other had no sound. Hopefully that'll do it. The first Black Rain newsletter went out this morning. If you haven't received it or would like to, please click the link to the left and send me the address to which you want it sent, and please make the subject line Sign up for newsletter or such, and if you want to be removed from it do the same but make the subject Remove me from newsletter. The final four cuts from the Live in LA bootleg are now up for download.


Got a reply back from Jason at Jupiter Records. He's been super busy recently, from recording with Matt Hubbard (who also played with the guys at the Nelson 4th bash), to working with the guys one their upcoming album. As far as the performance on the 5th at Willie's ranch, he said that Paula was called on stage to perform an hour early, as they were unable to locate Shawn Colvin right then for her set. He said that he may have been finishing up some BBQ with her at the time. Anyway he said they had to play then, that they may have been unable to later, because of the hold ups. He was on the RV (one of about 100 there) with Tony when a stage hand came and got them. He said that aside from the problems, the crowd loved it, Paula thought it was great and was honored to play with the guys. Oh he also said that they were sharing the RV with Billy Bob Thornton, who was going on and on about how Fastball was one of his favorite bands. As for the mention of tensions with Miles and Tony, he says that the guys were understanding of the situation and what happened. So I guess aside from general tensions of working with someone, even a friend, everything is going well with the guys. And apparently the 1000 pressings of the 'Live From Jupiter' CD are close to being sold out. Jason states that it is now no longer available from the store's site, and the last remaining copies will be taken and sold on the upcoming shows. Way to go, Congrats guys! As far as the new album is concerned, Jason says that there are some great new songs that the guys have written that will hopefully make it on the new record. Jason:"All of us are like a band of brothers working to make the next fastball record the best record in the world!!"

Site News: Several live images have been added for the Russel Carter Christmas Review Party back in Dec. 2002. Also the new featured download is available, hope you all enjoyed the last one. I think for now I'll do a two week rotation for a while, and throw in some new stuff, or maybe just highlight some regular downloads too.


As you recall Fastball played at the Willie Nelson and Family Fourth of July Picnic this past Saturday, backing Willie's daughter Paula. I was told that the band rehearsed with Paula a few times earlier in the week, at the Nelson ranch. Unfortunately not all live shows go off flawlessly, and this one was one of those cases. In a last minute schedule change the band and Paula ended up playing their set at around 11pm, just before a set by Shawn Colvin, who was then followed by Neil Young and Crazy Horse. The change was so last minute that not everyone got the info. and when their set was to start, they found themselves one member short. Tony, who was on the band's trailer at the time, apparently did not get the time change, and could not hear the announcements being made, more than likely due to the large crowd and commotion there at the event. However the decision was made by Miles, and probably Paula, to go ahead and start the set without him. Tony ended up missing three songs out of the set of five, one being 'Out Of My Head.' I'm awaiting a repsonse from Jason with Jupiter Records who I understand was there on stage with the band, for his info. and take on the show. It was mentioned to me that Tony was quite upset over the situation regarding the show, and there may possibly be some tensions building between he and Miles over the show and maybe more. I know all the fans wish the entire band the best and hope you don't let a little scheduling mishap or other minor things effect that great bond you've been building over these last several months. Let us know what's going on guys.

Site News: The first 3 pages of images are now online, more will be added soon.


Miles played a solo performance back on June 26 at the Continental Club in Austin. He played on the second of a two night benefit show, alongside other Austin musicians such as David Garza, Kevin Russel, Beaver Nelson, and more. The benefit was for acclaimed Texan singer-songwriter Alejandro Escovedo. Escovedo recently suffered a collapse and subsequent hospitalization due to complications of Hepatitis C. He is currently undergoeing treatment at his home. Further benefit shows are being organized throughout the US, and a tribute album is currently being arranged. For more information on Alejandro Excovedo, or to contribute to the Escovedo Fund, please visit

The band has added four new tour dates, one in mid July, and three in August. Also Chillie has passed along some info., given to him by Tony. The band, presumably the full band, will be the backing band for Paula Nelson, daughter of Willie Nelson, at his Willie and Family 4th of July Picnic. The set will last 20 min., and is slotted between performances by Neil Young and Willie himself. For more info. go to Tony also stated that the will be doing some shows in late August with the Gin Blossoms. He also says that the band may be close to signing with a record label. Also all Big Car mp3s are now up for download.

Site News: Also as a special treat in honor of the site's one year anniversary, the first Featured Download is a full length version of the Fastball rendition of Elvis Costello's "Busy Bodies." Because this is a recent recording, it will only be available until Wed. July 16, after which time only the short sample will be available for download. For information on the track see its link on the Songs/Lyrics page. If you enjoy it and other Elvis Costello songs, consider picking up the Costello tribute "Almost You." Enjoy.

The guys enjoyed it so much that they've invited him to come back and play with them again when they come back around for the San Antonio show towards the end of April. They also had local Austin musician Kevin McKinney (Soul Hat), who played some added guitar and bass in the show.

02.02.03 - Guitar Tab

Full tab for Slow Drag is now up.

02.01.03 - More on album and band

An update and correction from Jason (not his real last name) Alexander at Jupiter Rec. Track 5 on the album is actually called "Just Another Place." He also said that they will be setting up their website to sell the CD in a couple of days.

Also some info. from a recent Austin American Statesman article: "It's all part of the band's "starting over" strategy. "Tony and I have had a strange relationship," Zuniga says. "We barely knew each other when we started the band (originally called Magneto USA) and never hung out together socially." But Zuniga says he and Scalzo have been getting along famously the past two months and are writing together for the first time." So if it hasn't been plainly obvious to everyone yet, Miles is indeed back. And, Miles and his fiancee Kelly Ramsey will soon be moving back to Austin and putting their Nashville home up for sale.

The messages board for the site may be down sometime late this evening, early tomorrow morning, as the company will be updating and doing some updating to their systems and supposedly making things better. So sorry, but it shouldn't be for long. Just check and see.

01.31.03 - Interesting side note

Tony is on the advisory board for the Austin Music Foundation. There was an article from the Austic Chronicle here that spoke of the board and mentioned briefly his involvement. His name appears on the team members page for the Foundation's site (at the bottom sadly). You can view it here. Way to help the music community Tony.

01.30.03 (evening) - The Low Down & Skinny

It was suggested by a close friend that they do a show and record it. The show was set up quickly and as previously reported, was not advertised. About 50 friends and such showed up for the show. The CD is currently being pressed. Thanks for the scoop Jason.
