Miles blogs with Junkie Hands

December 22, 2009

Miles has posted a new song on his blog MilesZunigaLovesYou, a demo of a song called "Junkie Hands". The laid back piano ballad sounds more like the Small Stars than Fastball, but you can be the judge.

Earlier this month Miles also posted another new demo for a song called "Hundred Dollar Bill" This demo sounds quite Lennon-esque, and to me the main riff and verses sound a bit like some of the music featured in 70's era Argento giallos.

Both new tunes are the result of a songwriting game, where you're given a title or word(s) and you write a song based off the words. They're interesting, let's hope Miles keeps on playing the game. Click on the divShare logos and you'll be whisked away to the song's pages where you can download these tunes.

Fastball "trot" in for a stripped down Daytrotter set

November 15, 2009

Miles posted yesterday that the band recently completed a "Daytrotter Sessions" set at Daytrotter Studios in Rock Island, IL. The premise of the sessions is simple, come into the studio, pick-up or sit down at one of the instruments there, and record a quick raw set of songs. The band's set consisted of Always Never, Angelie, Soul Radio, and The Malcontent (The Modern World). The songs sound great, and this raw set really showcases the band's songcraft and how well they all mesh so well together live. The set is available to stream and download (free) at the Daytrotter site.

Daytrotter was one of the suggestions I made to the band through this site back in mid 2008, especially as they were going to be playing at a brewery in Rock Island on that summer tour. Not sure what finally got them up there now, but I'm glad they finally did, it turned out great.

Catch-up Items

October 20, 2009

Okay so I've been out of the F'ball mix for a bit, lots of stuff going on at my paying gig, and a lot of other personal commitments (and let's face it, there really hasn't been much to talk about). Anyhoo, some catch-up items here. First a couple shows to note, the first is a Miles and Tony acoustic show at The Back Porch in Port Aransas, TX on Friday October 23. The second show will be October 30, opening for The Toadies at L'Auberge du Lac Casino Resort in Lake Charles, LA. Full info on the Shows page.

Next, Miles has started his own Googlishious blog, to which he can let loose his thoughts on the world. Very similar to his old blog from The Small Stars site. It can be found here:

Lastly, for any of you still utilizing the address for this site, please make sure you update to the current URL if you have not already. I have opted to not renew this address, as I don't foresee it bringing any further benefit to the site. As for the site itself, I realize there are still areas in need of attention. It is likely to stay that way for a bit longer. My focus has been in my day to day job, and with other personal endeavors, most important of which is working on writing and recording music with a friend of mine.

I ask one favor of the dedicated fans that visit: If you are aware of some bit of news, info, or shows that I have not noted or updated on the site, please e-mail or PM me through the forum and let me know. While my attention is currently drawn away from Fastball and this site, I do want to keep things current and updated. So, if I'm missing something please let me know. And as usual thanks to all you fans that visit here. - Eric

Acoustic Fastball makes for good breakfast

August 12, 2009

The band made an appearance on the ’EHM Breakfast Show while in Amagansett this past Sunday. A couple tracks from the band's acoustic set have been posted on the show's blog. Click over to hear "All I Was Looking For Was You" and "The Way" from last Sunday's show.

Pics via @fastballtheband and @BenjaminCYoung.

Fastball with Jerry Springer

And later, the guys (or at least Miles) had some hang out time with Jerry as well as Gary "Baba Booey" Dell'Abate, producer of the Howard Stern Show.

Miles Vlogs Little White Lies tour

August 4, 2009

According to a recent blog post to the band's MySpace page, Miles will be trying out some video blogging throughout the band's month long tour with Sugar Ray. The first few videos are online now on Miles' Guy Fantasy YouTube page. Nothing much to interesting so far, but the tour is young, so hopefully we'll be seeing more frequent videos as the tour progresses.

In other keeping up with the band on tour news, I've popped the band's twitter widget on the side panel here as an added source of info.

Miles & John Dee at Continental Club and F'ball at Shady Grove

July 17, 2009

Fresh from the MySpace: Miles will join John Dee Graham on stage at the Continental Club in Austin this coming Sunday night (7/19) at 8:30pm, part of the "John Dee and Friend" series. On Thursday July 23, Fastball will strip down for an acoustic set at the Shady Grove. This will be a FREE show, part of 107.1 KGSR's "Unplugged at the Grove" series.

 Fastball add Talkhouse date + The Small Stars Return

July 5, 2009

Fastball will make a stop at the Stephen Talkhouse music club on Long Island, NY on 8/2 during their tour with Sugar Ray. This is a Fastball only show. Tickets are $20 and the show is at 8:00pm.

In other news Miles' cabaret rock troupe the Small Stars will be making a live return (in Austin) starting this Tuesday night. You can catch them at Vino Vino this Tuesday (7/7) at 8pm. The group will then be taking up residency at the Continental Club for 6:30 happy hour every Thursday in September. Will this be a short lived run or does this mark a return for the all star group? Either way, catch one of these few shows while you can.

Little White Lies = Mr. Roboto?

June 30, 2009

Little White Lies tour posterA quick check of the Fastball official store yielded this find, a new limited edition Little White Lies tour poster. This 19" x 26" poster is screen printed on heavy stock, and is signed and numbered by the artist Travis Bone. It can be yours for the displaying for $25 bucks. Current online stock is at 31 units, with no word on the total "limited" numbers. Snag it here.

It's an interesting poster, though how the imagery relates to Fastball, or the Little White Lies tour is less than clear. Perhaps a personification of "Soul Radio."

Of course the official store still has a slew of Fastball wears available, though they do need to restock many key shirt sizes.

An Additional Sugar Ray date

June 10, 2009

One last date with Sugar Ray has been noted by a fan on our forums. The two bands are scheduled to play Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa, Oklahoma on August 24 at 8:00pm. This date does not yet appear on the band's tour listing; however the event with Fastball is on the venue's calendar.

Additional tour dates

June 8, 2009

A couple of late(r) arrival tour dates here. The band is playing a FREE show Wednesday, June 10 (8:00pm), at Republic Square Park in Austin. They will also be playing a show with Smash Mouth and Soul Asylum at the Lucky Star Casino in Clinton, OK, on Friday June 26.

Other upcoming dates include:
Jun 20 - Washington Park - Manitowoc, WI
Jul 3 - Levitt Pavilion - Arlington, TX
Jul 4 - Antone's - Austin, TX
Jul 11 - Newburyport Riverfront Music Festival - Newbury Port, MA

Fastball to hit the road with Sugar Ray this summer

May 24, 2009

Fastball will join Sugar Ray for an 19 show run this summer, beginning in late July. Sugar Ray, best known for their hits "Fly," "Every Morning," and "Someday" gained fame in the latter 1990s, like Fastball. Their singer, Mark McGrath was previously in a band with Tony Scalzo called Electric Kool Aid, and has most recently been seen hosting the television show, 'Extra.' This tour should be a good one, and one would expect that if Fastball can continue to book tours with other 90's heyday bands, the draw from these shows should be pretty good, especially with complimentary combinations of powerpop, like Fastball and Sugar Ray.

New Interview with Miles and Tony

April 22, 2009

The Globecat blog has posted a recent interview with Miles and Tony. The interview is a nice length with some good Q&A. Read: Globecat's Interview.

New album already hard to find

April 20, 2009

Well nearly a week out and Little White Lies has found its way into the hands of many a hungry fan, and within hours of picking up copies many of those fans were buzzing on our message board, giving their thoughts and reviews. Overwhelmingly many fans have found this new album to be the band's best work to date. Unfortunately it seems that the new album has been a hard find at many local stores.

While many people were able to find copies at some larger store (i.e. Best Buy, Target) locations, other locations, as well as other stores that sell music were absent copies of the album. It seems that many stores were supposed to have at least one copy of the album in stock, but some snag has held up many places getting these copies. Miles has indicated that he is working with the band's distributor to figure out the problem. He has asked fans to post on the forum (this thread) which stores, specifically have not received copies. If you know of any please sign up and post them on that thread.

This issue has also affected non-US fans who ordered through sites like and are seeing delays due to the sites selling out of their initial stock, in addition to already long shipping delays. Miles has also indicated that he is trying to work out an overseas distribution plan; however, did note that it is more complex, especially being an independent artist, and therefore will take more time.

So please head over to forums, give us your take on the new album, and let us and the band know of stores that are missing copies of the album.

Slew O' Reviews

April 20, 2009

So within the short time since its release, Little White Lies has generated a number of new reviews, generally all very positive, but a few not so. Here's a run down: - Grade B
Metromix - 4 out of 5 stars
The Daily Iowan (scroll down) - 4 out of 5 stars
Out of the Blue (blog) - positive review, no ratings - Grade B
The Austin Chronicle - 3.5 stars
Racket Magazine - 8/10 - decent rating, though the paragraph writer calls it "standard fare"
Plumbiferous Media - Rating: 14 (out of 100?) - a bad review and worth complaining about - VV Rating (??) - a bad review and worth complaining about

Obviously, everyone is entitled to their opinions (of course we here are biased), but something must be said for ignorance and open mindedness of a music reviewer. It seems clear that the reviewers who didn't like the new album have the former and lack the latter and/or they just skimmed through the album without actually doing what is required to form a proper review of the material. So read around as you will, and let us know of a new review or piece of press as you come across it.

Lastly of note, two new articles about or with the band. First 'Fastball Has Found A New Way' from the Kitsap Sun. And next a Powerpopaholic Interview with Miles Zuniga. Check 'em out.

To this Miles states that the band is going to tour frequently in '09 and then they will make another album (this time without a five year wait). View the Observer article (PDF format).

Fastball expands social network  +  Tour Update

March 10, 2009

According to a new MySpace blog posting, Miles is busy watching Woodstock (The Director's Cut) and setting up a band account on Twitter. He has apparently succumbed to the temptation and pressure and expanded the band's social network to the now popular networking site (especially now popular for bands). Find the band by searching "Fastballtheband." It would seem that a Twitter account is required to search and view an account. As I do not have one, perhaps someone can fill us in on the message board as to what's on the band's new account.

It was also announced (as expected) that the band would be hitting the road beginning in late April or early May in support of Little White Lies.

Found another review or article online? Let us know about it.

PSU Says Fastball rocked

February 27, 2009

The free Fastball show at Penn State University last night, was a rockin' good one, pleasing avid Fastball fans and those just familiar with the band's late 90's hits. See: Fastball, Nine Days rock out HUB from the PSU Daily Collegian.

PSU Fastball & Nine Days article
