faster!! is the 'lost' drums&wires mini-album, originally recorded at Downtown Sound in Victoria, BC, and at T.R.'s secret studio. The album was never officially released until now, and has been digitized and remastered so to speak from cassette copies of the multi-track masters.
We won the very first "Rocktoria" contest—then the promoters decided to change the contest into one that showcased several winners. In retrospect, that was probably a good idea (the more the merrier). The EP was sponsored by Q100FM. drums&wires went on to tape the accompanying video with Chek6 and Legacy Studios in Victoria. A couple more Chek6 videos exist as well, if I can only find them…
Download gets you some hidden goodies—2 drawings and the Chek TV music video of Until Then (Minds)!


released August 13, 1984

Mr. Mike: bass, main vox.
Lew Taller/Murgatroid: guitars, vox, backing vox.
Johnny Quest: drums.

"Hailing from the garages of Victoria BC, drums&wires rose to the pinnacle of the pop scene in 1985 with their debut cassette, "Jolly Good Then!"
The band's latest album, "faster", channels Mr. Mike's easily digested choruses with punchy singalongs to concoct a solid record chock full of ultra-catchy gems. With standout tracks like "Sense Divisions," dominating radio airwaves far and wide, drums&wires is an essential addition to any music lover's library."
