After I made this post, I turned on a recording of MTV from '82 while we were making dinner. During this, Stary Cat Strut
by the Stray Cats came on. Yuki (the cat) was apparently really digging it so he started playing the can again. I tried recording him, again to no avail, and gave up.
However, of course as we were trying to go to sleep much later he made a cacophonous reprisal of his first performance, better than ever before. He easily played a 3 minute set and didn't stop until I promised we'd play together once he'd perfected his instrumentation.
God, I would love to play a noise set with a cat. (And not a dead cat
like the jackass at the show in December.)
