Faster Pussycat is a hard rock band formed in the mid 80's often associated with the glam metal scene, and belonging to the sleaze subgenre along side other late 80's bands like Guns N' Roses, L.A. Guns, and Dangerous Toys.

ONE NIGHT ONLY, IN PHOENIX, AZ FASTER PUSSYCAT will rock the house.  Do not miss this rare show.

The name Faster Pussycat was taken from a 1965 film called "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" The name was originally meant for Tracii Guns' new band after leaving Guns N' Roses. After getting financial backing if he used the L.A. Guns name again, Tracii's friend Taime Downe took the name and formed Faster Pussycat with lead guitarist Brent Muscat, the only member to perform on all Faster Pussycat releases besides Taime.

They released their self titled debut in 1987, as well as their follow up "Wake Me When It's Over" in 1989, during the last years of glam metal's commercial viability. They reached their commercial plateau with their hit ballad "House of Pain" off of their second album, which managed to go gold.

With the rise of grunge in the early 90's, Faster Pussycat's style of music fell out of favor, despite having little in common with the chart topping glam bands at the time, such as Warrant and Slaughter. They released their third album "Whipped!" to little success in 1992. Sensing the change in musicial tastes, they disbanded and went on to various other projects, with frontman Taime Downe going onto form an industrial rock band called Newlydeads.

In 2001, Taime released "Between the Valley of the Ultra Pussy" with some former members of Faster Pussycat under the moniker, which contained newer versions of older songs. The band has since reformed and has recorded a new album, "The Power and the Gloryhole," which was released in 2006. The band's style of music has shifted from the Aerosmith influenced rock to a more industrial one, much like Taime's Newlydeads.
