*2023 reissue* *MCIAA 25th anniversary limited edition of 200 copies*  This new 2023 special reissue of My Cat Is An Alien’s landmark album "RE-SI-STEN-ZA!" is intended to open the brotherly duo’s 25th anniversary celebrations. Originally released in 2016, the work well represents the summa of MCIAA's music activity, from their early space toys-era to the latest self-made electronics and string instruments outputs. Featuring two long compositions, the album reaches 50 minutes of pure “Spiritual Noise”—the way Maurizio and Roberto Opalio have baptized their very own music. "RE-SI-STEN-ZA!" is the ideal bridge for the complete communion between noise and silence, a shamanic voyage from Alpha to Omega… and beyond. 

"Metallic Gold Wax" private edition limited to 200 copies only, featuring a brand new cover artwork by Roberto Opalio. Includes 2 double-page A4 inserts with full credits, lyrics, black&white old photographic reproductions and a foreword by Roberto Opalio. Entirely designed by MCIAA. Comes with full-album Digital Download collector's card.

"The theme of resistance is one that has arguably shaped MCIAA’s entire career, as there are few other artists who have been so unwaveringly challenging and iconoclastic for as long as the Opalios. The average My Cat Is An Alien album has absolute zero common ground with anything happening in the mundane world of the masses, as Maurizio and Roberto seem to exclusively look to the stars or search inwardly for their inspirations instead.
[...] Everyone already indoctrinated into My Cat Is An Alien’s singular vision already knows that this is an essential release, but it may very well be the perfect entry point for the curious as well..” – Anthony D’Amico / Brainwashed

One of the pair’s bolder and more free-spirited outings” – The Wire

RE-SI-STEN-ZA!” is a super limited two-track juggernaut […] The title track finds MCIAA at the height of their wiring and warping powers, an absolute wig flipped tour de force that sees them morphing through elements of noise, musique concrete, stoner earthbeat and cosmic spiritualism to craft out a truly immense and often brutal cranium collapsing palette of psychotropic goo which across 25 minutes of head tripping groove shapeshifts with such out there aplomb that you literally fear your mind might fry.” – Mark Barton (The Sunday Experience) 

Opalio brothers have great array of means at their disposal - both in technical sense and in terms of their creative imagination which has no limits - it bears the resemblance of a creative spirit that the last decade of XXth century was made of and brought inventive combinations - a cross between the border. This beautifully published vinyl is a proof to that.” – Felthareviews
