Cities that never sleep ...

New York Noise 3 Music from the New York Underground 1979 -1984
the more i hear it , the better it's sounding / hope everyone can check it out

Delic Records Tokyo Numbers Pieces CD w/ The City That Never Sleeps
by Dominatrix . Now also available on Noise 3 , great track , one of my favorite old dom tracks.
There is also a second version of "The City ...'
done on EMU system at Heiner's Studio down just South of Canal St. at Joe LaPlaca's and with Dominique Davalos ('Sleeps Tonight' music video) and Shinichi Shimokawa (DCC/black rain) on guitar and there is yet another version with vocals in the 'virgin to vampire' mode . The version with Dominaique and Shin's acid techrock soloing over bass synth anchored urban dance rock WLIR
(a time when Gap Band ruled the air) oriented new electro club pop style.
Live we used to do Sleeps and two covers, Play It Safe and Mr. Dynamite
by Iggy & Bowie circa New Values , possibly baffling some of the crowd at the Copa or Funhouse but maybe just right for Paradise Garage '84 NMS , Danceteria , Studio 54

MD recently unearthed a version of Mr.Dominatrix from his closet I hadn't heard for 20 years so that was fun to hear , remembering it as it went along it one note riffs but a surprisingly deep clubby mix from 1984 after Sleeps was a good sized hit
Mr. Dom has was recorded with Steve Breck at his Studio W of Broadway on 25th back in that day and has session guest M Diekmann guitar
Dominatrix later recorded new original music for Noyuri Tokiwa's Prinzessin lingerie CDROM Innerware in 1994 including: Neon city, flower, Dominatrixmadonnadonnamatrix

Dom has seen lots of sampled & compilation action since Carl Cox's 'F.A.C.T 1''s 'Tonight', through Junior Cartier/Wall Of Sound's 'Women Beat Their Men',
DJ Hell's 'Munich Machine' cut and Puff Daddy & Mase's 'Do It Again' +
Tommy Boy's Perfect Beats Vol.2 '98 , Andy Weatherall's 'Nine O Clock Drop' ,
Gigolo's 'The Dominatrix Sleeps Tonight' triumphant rerelease in 2003
and finally, the Music Video's inclusion on Gigolo's Freak Show DVD in 2005
The dream is to have Dominatrix perform Tokyo in 2007 , following up on the current Delic CD and vinyl out there right now, with Levinthal's art the next cover

Diaries 1978 -1988 /1980 -1990 every day & night , all the people in the clubs
is coming ...
