Faster Pussycat (CD)
Back in the mid-80s if you were an aspiring sleaze star, LA's Sunset Strip was the place to be seen and heard. Sure, the legendary Hollywood street may have produced many a rock God since the mid-60s and had continued the grand tradition throughout the next couple of decades, giving rise to the likes of Quiet Riot, Motley Crue and Poison amongst many others. But it was the latter bands that sowed the seeds for an even wilder explosion of talent in the late 80s. Taking their influence from the roots of glam rock and fusing it with a pinch of punk, a new strain of Sunset Strip bands started to emerge. It was a scene that included LA Guns,Jet Boy, Guns N' Roses and Faster Pussycat amongst its main offenders. Revolving around legendary clubs such as the Cathouse and the Roxy, these acts placed an emphasis on looks and hooks rather than musical ability. It was an attitude that quickly made stars out of Guns N' Roses with bands like Faster Pussycat following hot on their heels. Named after a cult Russ Meyer directed movie and issued on Elektra Records in 1987, just two weeks before 'Appetite For Destruction' hit the shelves, the Faster Pussycat debut album was helmed by Poison producer Ric Browde. Fronted by charismatic vocalist Taime Downe and featuring guitarists Brent Muscat and Gregg Steele, the tracks leave little room for experimentation or refinement, concentrating instead on fast riffs, low slung guitars and a serious dose of rock 'n roll attitude.
