about

"Walking On Broadway," the long awaited debut solo record from Mark Kano, is now available. This is the first collection of new songs written by Kano since Athenaeum's 2001 self-titled effort on Atlantic Records. The self-produced eight song disc was mixed by Gavin MacKillop (Toad The Wet Sprocket, Goo Goo Dolls, Athenaeum) and recorded at various studios throughout 2008 with the help of fellow musicians Nic Brown, Snuzz, Mike Garrigan and Sam Frazier. "Walking On Broadway" picks up where we last left Athenaeum, a band that helped create a brand of authentic pop rock that continues to live somewhere just outside the radar of mainstream music. Instantly accessible yet sophisticated and memorable, "Walking On Broadway" promises to please fans of the alternative rock genre.

Track Name: Walking On Broadway
There must be something on the radio waves
That keeps me coming here for all of my days
When some voice across the ocean comes and changes my ways
It was destiny
Maybe it's something like a coming of age
You loose yourself and leave your soul on a page
Like a lonely apparition dropping crumbs in a maze
You are make believe

Time passes by when you're up on a stage
In the blink of an eye you'll be locked in a cage
You can loose it all

Walking On
Walking On Broadway
I lost it all Walking On Broadway

And it ain't nothing but a sign of the times
You gain the world it only costs you your mind
There's a pill for every moment boy you're doing just fine
Just you wait and see
Maybe they've got you like a dog on a leash
Scratching and kicking clawing showing your teeth
But if only for a moment you could set yourself free
You could make the scene

Time changes shape when you're out here in space
And if you ever come down everything is erased
You can loose it all

Walking On
Walking On Broadway
I lost it all Walking On Broadway

I ain't looking for a new fascination
I'm just craving me some peer validation
And if we get there take a long vacation now

Or we could loose it all
Walking On Broadway
I lost it All Walking On Broadway
Track Name: Calling Saturn
Calling Saturn
Changing patterns
Heartbeats scatter
A world is shattered
Moonlight showers
Form this tower
Starlight falling
Saturn calling

Stormy was my destiny
'Till I found a Rasta girl
She came along and rescued me
And took me to a Rasta world
Where everything was gold and green
And Reggae was the only sound
I'm changing my philosophy
Diggin' that high singing don't worry
About a thing
Singing don't worry baby
About a thing

Calling Saturn
Changing patterns
Heartbeats scatter
A world is shattered
Stormy was my destiny
'Till I found a Rasta girl
She came along and rescued me
And took me to her world singing don't worry
About a thing
Singing don't worry baby
About a thing

The sky is filled with smoke tonight
The ocean moon is black and white
And the captain here is drunk tonight

Hey baby don't worry about it
I said hey baby don't worry about it

Calling Saturn
Track Name: I'm Still Waiting
You're warm, you're wise, you're sacred in my eyes
You're bold, you're brave, you're patient as the day
And I'm just sitting on a rock right here
Watching all the stars appear
And I've been waiting for a chance my dear
I'm still waiting
Yeah I'm still waiting

You're cool, you're kind, you're perfect in my mind
You walk with grace, you're an angel in this place
And I'm just sitting on a rock right here
Watching all the stars appear
And I've been waiting for a chance my dear
I'm still waiting
Yeah I'm still waiting
I'm still waiting
Yeah I'm still waiting
I'm still waiting

For a chance to find
My own mind

Do do do do oh yeah
Do do do do oh yeah
Do do do do oh yeah

I'm still waiting
I'm still waiting
Yeah I'm still waiting
Yeah I'm still waiting
Track Name: Telling You I Love You
There's something in the air tonight

But nothing on earth could make me stop this fight

There's nothing that I could say to change your mind

There's nothing like a broken heart
To open you up and drop you at the start

There's nothing that I could say to change your mind



And there's nothing that I'd rather do
Nowhere than I'd rather be

Than watching the sun go down

And having you here with me
And there's nothing that I'd rather say
Than whatever you want me to

You'll know that it's from the heart

Cause nothing could sound so true

As telling you I love you

As telling you I love you



There's nothing like an open door

To a million miles of road you can't explore

There's nothing like a shiny new to tempt your mind

So when you're out there on your rocky road

And you've been through it so many times your mind explodes

And there's nothing that you can do to turn back time

And there's nothing that I'd rather do
Nowhere that I'd rather be

Than watching the sun go down

And having you here with me
And there's nothing that I'd rather say

Than whatever you want me to

You'll know that it's from the heart

Cause nothing could sound so true

As telling you I love you
As telling you I love you
As telling you I love you
As telling you I love you

I love you
I love you
Track Name: Sad Songs
I found it hard to believe it's true
But ooh my baby left me for something new
Girl you had me locked underneath your spell
Now I'm another one gone in your wishing well

It's just a sad song saying goodbye
Sad enough to make you cry
But even sad songs say it's alright
We don't want a broken heart tonight

What an unfortunate circumstance
Ooh should I give your love another chance
Girl you had me tricked with your sweet romance
Am I a fool for believing in your song and dance?

It's just a sad song saying goodbye
Sad enough to make you cry
But even sad songs say it's alright
We don't want a broken heart tonight

It's alright
When you're under the gun
It's alright
And there's nowhere to run
It's alright
When you're under the gun
It's alright

I found it hard to believe it's true
But ooh my baby left me for something new
And girl you had me locked underneath your spell
Now I'm another one gone in your wishing well

It's just a sad song saying goodbye
Sad enough to make you cry
But even sad songs say it's alright
We don't want a broken heart tonight

It's alright
Yeah it's alright
Yeah it's alright

Even sad songs say it's alright
Track Name: Where Were You Last Night
Peridots for a pair of eyes
She's got me paralyzed here in paradise
It kind of makes me wonder
What kind of spell have I been under

I hurt you bad
But I want you back

Where were you last night?
Where were you last night?
It kind of makes me crazy
Just thinking about you baby

Please come back
Please come back

Desert eyes, island smile
A country heart, New York City style
It kind of makes me wonder
What kind of rock did I crawl from under

Good times, nightmares
God knows we've had our share

Where were you last night?
Where were you last night?
It kind of makes me crazy
Just thinking about you baby

Please come back
Please come back

Frozen heart, tired ways
With open arms through my darkest days
You really had me going
The way you moved me without even knowing

Good times, some bad
You're still the best I've had

Where were you last night?
Where were you last night?
It kind of makes me crazy
Just thinking about you baby
Track Name: Mr. Dog Catcher
Oh please Mr. Dog Catcher
Won't you have a heart today?
If you see my little doggie
Would you send him on his way?
He's been gone for quite a few hours
And I don't know where he is
But I found a polka dot collar
And I know it's probably his

And I miss the way he barks at me
And the way he wags his tail
Oh I would do anything
Just to keep him from the doggie jail

So please Mr. Dog Catcher
If you have a heart today
And you see my little doggie on your way
Would you send him home to me?
Track Name: Baby I'm Your Man
I've got my heart set on you
I get this feeling no one else in the world will do
And I won't let go when the wind starts blowing
This ain't no castle made of sand that we've been living in and I know it

So if there's anything you can be sure of at all...
Some folks have it all, but you and me chose the fall
And I've been falling ever since I proudly stole your hand

Cause baby I'm your man
Baby I'm your man

You've got your heart set on me
You've packed your whole world with everything that life can be
And you've got my shoulder if winds grow colder
Your love's a river so deep so wide I could never get over

So if there's anything you can be sure of at all...
Some folks build a wall, but you and me chose the fall
And I've been falling ever since I proudly stole your hand

Cause baby I'm your man
Baby I'm your man
Baby I'm your man
Baby I'm your man

And I'd do it all again
Baby I'm your man
