LA – late 1980s early 1990s and the hard rock scene was being dominated by the likes of Guns ‘N’ Roses, Motley Crue, Warrant and Poison. There was also another band though that was winning over a legion of fans – Faster Pussycat. Their self-titled debut caused a stir in 1987 and their follow-up album Wake Me Up When It’s Over made the a household name for music lovers right around the world.

Fronted by Taime Downe Faster Pussycat are about to head back to Australian shores and HEAVY Mag recently caught up with the hard-working frontman.

“It’s cool, this tour came up out of the blue,” says Downe his energy racing down the phone line towards me. “We found out right before Christmas. I got a phone call and it was like…hey you want to go to Australia. It was that quick and I was like “when?” because I was thinking it would be in the Spring for us… so I was thinking March, April, May something like that and they were like “February” and I was like “Really, that quick?” But really it is awesome, it is so cool because it is summer for you guys but I heard that it is fucking blistering there for you guys right now. You guys are getting like 113? 115? It is on the news here that you guys have tires melting and stuff. We live in southern California and it gets hot here but not like that, that is like Arizona hot. That is like fuck that shit hot.”

“We’re fucking not that connected with them,” says Downe disappointed that he hasn’t had more of a connection with his Australian fans over the years. “We’ve only been there once. That was like ten years ago, December 08 I think, that was the only time we have been there and that was with Lynch Mob who are good friends of ours. But we went there and it was awesome, but I had always wanted to go there since we started back in the late 1980s. Way back in the old days we used to have our buddies in Skid Row saying ‘hey we went over there and it was amazing’ but we never got there. Then we did go over there last time and it was so much fun… we have been trying to get back there for awhile.”
