Brent Muscat (born April 23, 1967) is a musician who has played in various hard rock bands, most notably Faster Pussycat.

Faster PussyCat, etc[edit]

Faster Pussycat was formed in the 1980's Hollywood glam metal boom. The original line up consisted of Brent, along with Taime Down and Greg Steel.The band's most successful album Wake Me When It's Over earned "Gold" status from the RIAA.

The name of the band is derived from the Russ Meyer film Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!. Brent left the band in 1993.[1]

On April 21, 2007, Muscat circulated via MySpace an open invitation to Taime Downe and Greg Steele to reunite Faster Pussycat with him.[2]

Brent's version of Faster Pussycat toured Europe in Spring 2007 with Kurt Frohlich replacing Taime on vocals along with Todd Kerns on guitar.[3]

After a short name dispute with Taime Downe Brent dropped his claim and dissolved his incarnation of the band.[4]
