MCIAA/ponzini/morley/ranaldo @ SENSATIONAL FIX


just got word from the opalio bros that they "just received today the proofs of the artwork for the LP jacket of the Morley/MCIAA/Ponzini/Ranaldo vinyl on Starlight Furniture Co.; you'll find pics attached -- As you'll see, we curated the whole artwork, using some of the polaroids that Roberto shot on stage in St. Nazaire, plus a very special 'collage' which should look familiar to you. hope you'll appreciate 'our efforts' in doing it ;-) Also, the record, in a limited edition of 450, is scheduled for August/Sept 2009"

The Live @ Sensational Fix LP is just out now.Here's a link to a short live video footage of that show:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/sensationalfix/3337619703/

http://www.mycatisanalien.com/news.htm

MICHAEL MORLEY, MY CAT IS AN ALIEN, RAMONA PONZINI, LEE RANALDO - 'Live @ Sensational Fix'
LP - Starlight Furniture Co. (distributed by Revolver USA) - ST25


***On June 17, 2008, the exhibition Sonic Youth etc.: Sensational Fix opened at LiFE in Saint-Nazaire, France, with a focus on their multi-disciplinary activities since 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 stage with their long-time collaborator Ramona Ponzini (Painting Petals On Planet 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 supplied with two guitars from Sonic Youth's memorabilia wall of old guitars. No MCIAA show would be complete without sounds and beams generated by space 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 joined My Cat Is An Alien and Ramona Ponzini on stage for an improv piece. They were already way into developing [it] when, to their surprise, Lee Ranaldo picked up the guitar that Maurizio had left lying on stage when he moved on to playing percussion, [which only] made the already phenomenal sonic achievement even denser."
Stills from the live footage shot by Groenenboom appear on the color insert. During the performance, Roberto shot photos with a Poloroid camera supplied by LiFE's director Christophe Wavelet--what Opalio entitles "The Sensational 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 members of this extemporaneous ensemble. The perfect compendium to the unicity of this historical document.***
