One of the first to write rap songs in Brazil, Fausto Fawcett had success with his "Kátia Flávia" in the national radio, included in his first LP, Fausto Fawcett & Os Robôs Efêmeros (1987). The song was later included in Roman Polanski's film released in Brazil as Lua De Fel and also was re-recorded by Fernanda Abreu. Fawcett also wrote the hit "Rio 40 Graus," with Fernanda Abreu, recorded by her. Always exploring a chaotic urban setting where cybernetics coexist with Brazilian icons, like the obsession for women, Fawcett likes to explore his themes in a multimedia way, where his conceptual shows are complemented by the albums, books, and videos. 1989's O Império Dos Sentidos is even more sex-oriented. He released the book Santa Clara Poltergeist, which revealed the sex-symbol Regininha Poltergeist, the first one of a row of blondes which included Marinara and Cristina Azul. In 1993, he released Básico Instinto - Fausto Fawcett e Falange Moulin Rouge and, in 1999, staged the show Dallas Melrose.
