"Roberto and his brother Maurizio are the highly advanced lifeforms crewing the mysterious starship that goes by the name of My Cat is an Alien (MCIAA), plotting a quixotic course through three millennia of cosmic music, from the celestial drones of the Pythagorean monochord onwards, to land up in the gravity-free realm of the No-mind." - THE WIRE

"Roberto and Maurizio Opalio are the new kings of the solar system, and their reign will be nothing but superb. This is essential music." - FOXY DIGITALIS
"Italy's My Cat is an Alien is the finest two-brother band from Italy since the end of the Great War. Their sounds move through the air the way that a tub of fine Roman butter moves through a circus ape." - Byron Coley & Thurston Moore, Arthur
"This is proper minimalism, the art of LaMonte Young; only while Young longed desperately for a trance-state, MCIAA start in one and work from there...it is so staggering, so mesmerizing, and makes music on its own terms so definitely, that it has a certain menacing, willfully unpretty and monolithic grandeur, like some intractable slab of rock, or a vast, empty desert." - STYLUS
Like some kind of droned-out Sun Ra, My Cat is an Alien landed only long enough to drop off the masters and artwork at Important Records before vanishing into the cosmos (or Torino) once again. This new full-length album, recorded April 2005 at MCIAA's Alien Zone, consists of three tracks with a total length of 49:20 minutes. Cosmic Light of the Third Millennium is the sum of My Cat is an Alien's myth-poetic imaginary. Here, the Opalio space-brothers push their improvised music of the spheres into new cosmic territories, where the use of wordless vocals impresses a still-unheard lyricism inside the sublime complexity of their unique musical textures.
My Cat is an Alien is the improv duo formed by brothers Maurizio and Roberto Opalio. They both primarily play electric & acoustic guitars, various toy instruments and percussion. Since forming in late 1997, they have released several CD-Rs and vinyl on their own Opax Records. MCIAA's debut recording immediately thrilled Sonic Youth, and two months later the two brothers made their live debut supporting Sonic Youth's 1998 Italian tour. During the past six years, MCIAA have been invited to perform live on Sonic Youth European tours as well as at Kim Gordon and Jim O'Rourke's solo shows.
In July 2004, MCIAA started on a series of special ART-split LPs called From the Earth to the Spheres featuring the Italian duo alongside outsider artists such as Thurston Moore, Jim O'Rourke, Jackie-O Motherfucker, Christina Carter (Charalambides), Thuja and Glands of External Secretion with Nels Cline. Because of the great success of the project, Very Friendly is issuing the whole series in CD format!
