As a non-programmed live act, My Cat Is An Alien were suppliedwith two guitars from Sonic Youth s memorabilia wall of old guitars. NoMCIAA show would be complete without sounds and beams generated byspace toy guns, which they liberated from a local vintage toys warehouse(including a toy microphone for Roberto s vocals).Exhibition curator Roland Groenenboom recalls: Michael Morley joinedMy Cat Is An Alien and Ramona Ponzini on stage for an improv piece. Theywere already way into developing [it] when, to their surprise, Lee Ranaldopicked up the guitar that Maurizio had left lying on stage when he movedon to playing percussion, [which only] made the already phenomenal sonicachievement even denser. Stills from the live footage shot by Groenenboom appear on the colorinsert. During the performance, Roberto shot photos with a Poloroid camerasupplied by LiFE s director Christophe Wavelet what Opalio entitles TheSensational Fix trilogy which are front and back cover and labels of this LP.Side B features a collection of solo pieces by each of the five membersof this extemporaneous ensemble. The perfect compendium to the unicity ofthis historical document.
