Brothers Paul Zone, Miki Zone & Armand Zone formed The Fast in the mid 70s somewhere between glam & punk and soon became an integral part of the Max''s/CBGB scene along side Blondie & The Ramones with their blend of power pop & garage punk.

In 1975, with New York punk just around the corner and youngest brother Paul just out of puberty, Miki & Armand''s band The Fast were ready for a big change. The hype on the ex pop art students made them a headlining act at Max''s Kansas City in New York right from the start and by 1976 their first single "Boys Will Be Boys" for CBS Records UK produced by Bobby Orlando (Pet Shop Boys / Flirts / Bobby O / Divine) was released. Their sound was developed with mod pop elements and the use of synths years before they became a staple for 80s New Wave. Their second single "It''s Like Love" produced by Richard Gottehrer (Raveonettes / Blondie / Go Go''s / Strangeloves) in 1977 was again a blending of electronic synth sounds and bubblegum pop. Another change accrued when Armand left the band in 1978 to form Ozone, Paul & Miki regrouped, stripped down the sound and released their next single "Coney Island Chaos b/w These Boots Are Made For Walkin". Throughout ''78 & ''79 The Fast toured the US and caught the eye & ear of Ric Ocasek who brought them on a tour of stadiums with The Cars and produced "Kids Just Wanna Dance" for a Colombia Records compilation release of new acts. In 1980 they released their first LP "The Fast For Sale", this was a compilation of past releases, out-take recordings and featured the new single "B-Movies b/w Cars Crash" produced by Ian North (Milk ''n'' Cookies / Neo). Their second LP "Leather Boys From The Asphalt Jungle" was recorded live in the studio, released in 1981 and is the last time Paul & Miki would record with a live band. An even bigger change came at the top of 1982 when they shifted back to synth based pop, this time without guitars or drums. They toured up & down the east coast with two back-up keyboard players and Miki & Paul up front on keyboards & electronics. When it came time to record the last Fast single "Moontan", Paul & Miki were the only members involved with producer Ian North. For the remainder of ''82 they performed for the first time as a duo in New York at Harrah, s.n.a.f.u., The Pyramid & The Mudd Club with keyboards, electronics & backing tapes. These shows would be the last time the name The Fast is used. At the top of 1983 they recorded a few singles with the first Fast producer Bobby Orlando, started calling themselves "Man''s Favorite Sport" and got bookings in bigger dance clubs like The Fun House, Limelight & The Saint in New York and at Heaven in London. They quickly changed their name again to a shorter, catchier "Man 2 Man" and by the mid 80s they would have their biggest success with chart topping club tracks world wide and #1 pop cross over hits through out Europe, Australia, South America & Mexico.
