Faster Pussycat formed in Los Angeles, California in 1986. They are named after the 1965 film Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!. Their first album, Faster Pussycat, was released in 1987. The band hit their high point in 1989 with their second album, Wake Me When It's Over with its hit ballad, "House of Pain", which went gold. When grunge took over in popularity in 1991, Faster Pussycat fell off the map as their genre of music quickly went out of style, though they did release their third album Whipped!, which featured backing vocals by Bekka Bramlett. Tracii Guns was briefly a touring guitarist for Faster Pussycat. Taime Downe (ex-Bondage Boys) was and is Faster Pussycat's lead singer. Taime's other claim to fame was as co-owner (with Riki Rachtman, who guested on the first Faster Pussycat album and was later host of MTV's Headbanger's Ball) of The Cathouse, a popular heavy-metal themed night club in Los Angeles. Faster Pussycat's lead guitarist is Brent Muscat, brother of Todd Muscat (who was bass player in a number of influential Los Angeles based bands including Decry, Kill For Thrills, and Junkyard). Brent Muscat has also played as a touring guitarist for L.A. Guns, and appears on the two bonus live tracks on L.A. Guns' Rips the Covers Off. Guitarist Greg Steele was formerly co-guitarist with Brent Muscat. Eric Stacy and Mark Michals were Faster Pussycat's past bassist and drummer, respectively. Mark Michals was fired after their first album due to drug-related legal trouble. Drummer Frankie Banali (Quiet Riot, W.A.S.P.) briefly played with Faster Pussycat as a touring drummer, before the band hired drummer Brett Bradshaw (later a member of Blackboard Jungle). Faster Pussycat now features guitarist Xristian Simon (ex-Newlydeads), bassist Danny Nordahl (ex-The Throbs, ex-Newlydeads), and drummer Chad Stewart (ex-Newlydeads). Faster Pussycat dissolved in 1994 and reformed in 2002. They are currently touring and there has been a word that there will be a new album in 2006. « hide
