Description

In the late '80s, Faster Pussycat captured the hedonistic vibe at the sunset of the Sunset Strip. The glam metal band's biggest album, "Wake Me When It’s Over," went gold, largely thanks to the broken-home ballad, "House of Pain." The smash single opens with a wailing harmonica and follows frontman Taime Downe as he relives the moment when his imperfect father left for the last time. Faster Pussycat broke up just as grunge was taking off and never truly reunited. Now, Downe has reinvented their sound, leaning more toward the industrial end of the rock spectrum, while still maintaining the melancholy chic of his group's early years.
