On June 17, 2008, the exhibition Sonic Youth etc.: Sensational Fix openedat LiFE in Saint-Nazaire, France, with a focus on their multi-disciplinary activitiessince 1981 collaborations with visual artists, filmmakers, designers,and musicians, as well as other works selected by the band.As part of the exhibition project, My Cat Is An Alien performed on stagewith their long-time collaborator Ramona Ponzini (Painting Petals OnPlanet Ghost, Black Magic Disco, Z ev) singing Japanese, Michael Morley of New Zealand s free noise band Dead C, and Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth. 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 The perfect compendium to the unicity ofthis historical document.
