Mystery Song

Here's one I haven't been able to identify for years. For a long time I thought it was by the Stranglers, but now know it isn't, anyways, here's some lyrics:

Catwalker
She's my only girl, the only girl
Catwalker
She's my little girl,
Stalking 'til the break of light
Catwalker
She's my only girl, the only girl

She comes to visit
And take me back with her
Well she'll bite and scratch
Or purr all night long
She's been living on her 9 lives
She's been living on her 9 lives
Here... in the human zoo

Anyone have any info on this one? I eventually came across this on a tape made from CFNY, I'm guessing from 83 or 84, at the end the announcer says 'those are the...' and is cut off!

I'd love to get this on CD and hear more from the band!

Later,
Ralph

This one's FAR too easy! It's Catwalker, by the Diodes.

See:

But Catwalker does not seem to be a track on the CD in the attached link. Any info on where this track is available (on CD or vinyl?)

Thanks,
Ralph

I asked the guy in charge of the new CD release at Bullseye Records, and this is his answer:

Date: Sun, 20 May 2001 16:44:26 -0400
From: Jaimie Vernon
Organization: Bullseye Records of Canada Inc.
Subject: Diodes

Yes, we are still releasing the Diodes CD...we are waiting on the
transfer of a tape containing a very rare track by the band's Paul
Robinson. Once that's in hand, we can complete the artwork and get on
with the release.

An update on the Diodes release:

Date: Mon, 28 May 2001 23:43:00 -0400
From: Jaimie Vernon
Organization: Bullseye Records of Canada Inc.
Subject: Diodes CD

Scott,
Action/Reaction has been pushed back to the Fall as we're still working on the packaging and tape clean-up -- the recent discovery of a previously unknown tape has also added some material we didn't have access to last year.

Hang tight, we'll let you know.

I've been trying to find a song that used to be played on CFNY back in the late 80s/early 90s... I had a copy on tape as late as 91 taped from air- the song is a collage of JFK assassination broadcasts: Walter Cronkite and the like. I have no idea who did it, but I need a copy to relive the old days. Also, how about an mp3 of the Shep saying "So whaddya wanna hear baby?" that used to be part of the intro for the All-request nooner?

I lived in Buffalo from 84-97 and listened to CFNY almost exclusively for many of those years, but the 89-92 years are my personal soundtrack.

Any help is appreciated

"The Motorcade Sped On" by Steinski and Mass Media
is the song. It was available on a DJ Remix Service out of the U.S. called Disconet. I don't know whether it was commercially available. There was an issue with using the broadcasts in the song without permission, that may have prevented this from being widely available. It will be difficult to find.

Hmm. I think I might actually have the 12" single of that song. I'll check tonight...watch my MP3 of the week site at http://www.nerosoft.com/mp3 - if I do have it, I'll post it there.

Hope you can help,

I'm looking for the group/title of a song that was played in the late 80's that went "tick tick tock" with an alarm clock ring. I haven't heard the song in at least 10 years so I can't remember much more

I'm looking for the song "My Old Man's a Waste" by Knobby Klegg and the Civilians (not sure on the spelling). This would have played around 1980 or so. I think they also did a song called "Dying with Flies on My Face".

I believe you are speaking of a Ministry sideproject called PTP
the song is Rubber glove seduction

Not sure how hard it is to find the single these days, but it was on the WAXTRAX
3 CD Set (the First 13 years)

"Tick Tick Tock" is called "Rubber Glove Seduction", and it's by PTP, who were a RevCo spin-off band. I believe it was available as a single and on the WaxTrax anniversary CD set. I also believe I have seen it on Morpheus.com.

Isn't this a great site!

Just wanted to pop in with a quick hello to all CFNY listeners who enjoyed the station through the late 70's and all through the 80's.

I had the pleasure of speaking with you personally
on the phones, at high school Road Shows, at the X and pretty well everywhere our signal was heard, broadcasting from the little yellow house to the top of the CN Tower.

Hey, remember "Zippers of Fire" by The Government?

What a great track.

Anyway, best wishes. So long for now.
