As Fast As is an alternative rock band from Portland, Maine, USA, which includes the former Rustic Overtones keyboard player Spencer Albee, who along with Haché Horchatta and Zach Jones were members of the power pop group Rocktopus. Their first album, Open Letter to the Damned, was released on Octone Records in May, 2006. The album's hit song "Florida Sunshine" was played on an episode of CSI: Miami, as well as in the promotional advertisements for the series. As Fast As left Octone Records due to "a difference in creative vision". On March 11, 2008, the band released Destroy the Plastique Man independently. The band stopped playing in August 2008, but despite Albee being busy with his new project Spencer and the School Spirit Mafia, the band reformed for a one-off concert at The Asylum in Portland on July 18, 2009, and released a new album, AFA For Effort, on June 23.
The band's line-up consists of:
- Spencer Albee - vocals, keyboards, guitar, ukulele
- Haché Horchatta - bass guitar
- Zach Jones - guitar
- Andrew Hodgkins - drums
