As Fast As is an alternative rock band from Portland, Maine, USA, that 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,[1] as well as in the promotional advertisements for the series. As Fast As left Octone Records due to "a difference in creative vision".[2] On March 11, 2008, the band released Destroy the Plastique Man independently.
