Stream My Cat Is An Alien Tracks

August 2011

Listen to three tracks by the Opalio brothers.

"Here On The Sad Planet" is from My Cat Is An Alien's 2005 album Greetings From The Great Void. "Alien Blood (excerpt)" is from the soundtrack to the "homonymous" film by Roberto Opalio, shown as part of the Sonic Youth Etc.: Sensational Fix travelling exhibition. "Fragments Suspended In Time (excerpt)" is from a limited private press vinyl-only edition out on the duo's Opax Records imprint.

My Cat Is An Alien (brothers Maurizio and Roberto Opalio) are featured in an article by Ken Hollings in The Wire 331. A 10 CD box set retrospective of their recordings, Alienology: Selected Works 1998-2008 (which also includes Roberto's film) is released this month on Elliptical Noise.
