Sunset Strip in Los Angeles is more or less symbolic for the sleaze / glam wave that swept over the world in the 80s. Bands like Motley Crue, Ratt,  Poison , and L.A Guns to mention a few achieved great success and created a genre that even these days has a large fan following.

Yet another band to add to the list is Faster Pussycat, formed in Los Angeles in 1986 by singer and front-man Taime Downe. The band managed to build a cult following when putting out two videos of the songs “Bathroom Wall” and “Do not Change That Song“. Both are taken from this debut that was released in 1987 on Elektra and produced by Ric Browde, the man behind Poison‘s multi-platinum debut album, Look What the Cat Dragged In.
Although the band achieved even greater success with the subsequent Wake Me When It ‘s Over, I think this debut is more charming and authentic. The band’s straightforward style filled with punk, glam rock and a dose of rock ‘n roll shows the best from the Sunset Strip era and does not get more “real” than this. Tracks like “Bathroom Wall,”  “Cathouse,” and “Don’t Change That Song” is crazy good with their simple and straightforward melodies. “No Room For Emotion” where the band flirts with classic bands like Rolling Stones and Aerosmith is another gem worth mention on this essential debut.
It’s the first 3 albums you should listen to when it comes to Faster Pussycat, but this debut is iconic and belongs to the top of the albums that were released during the Golden years of the Sleaze rock. Classic stuff!


Μια πολλά υποσχόμενη μπάντα, μιας αρκετά προβληματικής παρέας, έμελλε να ντεμπουτάρει το 1987 με αυτό το περίεργο όνομα. Ήταν μια παρέα που είχε διδαχτεί από τους AEROSMITH, δανειζόταν από την punk νοοτροπία, έκανε παρέα με τους L.A. GUNS και μουσικά είχε κοινά με τους GUNS N’ ROSES. Σε μια ωμή, πρώιμη εκδοχή τους οι FASTER PUSSYCAT έπεισαν μια δισκογραφική όπως η Elektra να επενδύσει πάνω τους, σε μια εποχή που όλοι στην Αμερική, έψαχναν για την επόμενη, μεγάλη αρπαχτή!

Μέσα σε 36 λεπτά καθαρού rock n’ roll, θυμίζουν αρκετά την ενέργεια που είχαν οι θρύλοι AEROSMITH και οι καλύτερες στιγμές του ομώνυμου ντεμπούτου τους, είναι τα πιο ανεβασμένα και γρήγορα τραγούδια. Ο δίσκος ανοίγει με το “Don’t change that song” που αμέσως οριοθετεί την ηχητική τους διαδρομή. Κομματάρες όπως το “Smash alley” φανερώνουν καλύτερα τον πιο καλογυαλισμένο δρόμο που θα έπαιρναν στον επόμενο δίσκο τους, όπως και το κιθαριστικό ύφος του “Ship rolls in”. Η κιθαριστική συνεύρεση των Brent Muscat και Greg Steele ήταν ο κινητήριος μοχλός των FASTER PUSSYCAT, αλλά η χαρακτηριστική φωνή του Taime Downe έδινε την χαρακτηριστική χροιά. Φανταστείτε ένα κοκτέηλ φωνητικών που μπερδεύει των Steven Tyler (“Bottle in front of me”), David Lee Roth και τον Sid Vicious.

Οι ευφάνταστοι στίχοι τους ασχολούνται με πολύ RNR θεματολογία, έχοντας διφορούμενες έννοιες αλλά και αρκετό χιούμορ. Σε συνδυασμό με το επίσης RNR σκηνικό που στήνουν μουσικά, κάνουν τραγούδια σαν το “Bathroom wall” κλασικά κι έτσι άνοιξαν τον δρόμο της επιτυχίας που ήρθε με τον επόμενο δίσκο.
