F is for Faster Pussycat

I consider Faster Pussycat a guilty pleasure due to the blatant sexual content. That said, one track is an homage to the lead singer and bassist of Betty Blowtorch, Bianca Halstead’s tragic death marking the group’s demise. Another reinvents the classic “These Boots Are Made for Walkin’” first made a hit by Nancy Sinatra. I adore Ms. Sinatra’s version from the soundtrack of “Full Metal Jacket”, which just makes Faster Pussycat’s take that much more fun.


My phony band for today goes by the name The Frozen. As you can probably already guess, they also have a counter-pop culture sensibility. I think they may write angst ridden tunes similar to The Faint (“Ballad of a Paralyzed Citizen” being one great example). In a cool aside, tunes by The Faint featured on episodes of the creepy television show “American Horror Story: Hotel” last year. What a treat.

  2. All Faster Pussycat means to me is my cat chasing our neighbour's cat out of the garden!

  4. I worry that The Frozen is too similar to Elsa and crew. But I love that you take your posts to this next level and try to come up with new fake band names. I have a few of my own (from playing RockBand)maybe one day I'll share on the appropriate letter.

  5. I picture 'Frozen' all wearing cool colors, with tiny sequins the shape of ice crystals sewn into their costumes. (heart) Thank you for sharing!

  9. Ok. Had to look this one up. Caught House of Pain on YouTube. Pretty cool and brings back 80s memories. ;-) Surprised I don't remember hearing them then.
