JEAN-MARC MONTERA / MY CAT IS AN ALIEN

Union Of The Supreme Light

(Starlight Furniture Company - *28) LP $20.00

Joining Maurizio and Roberto Opalio on their fourth album for Starlight Furniture Co., legendary French-Corsican guitarist and co-founder of Groupe de Recherche et d’Improvisation Musicales brings his noisy lyricism to three long tracks of oddly sensual and animalistic space howl. As their many past collaborations attest, My Cat Is An Alien’s self-sustaining biosphere is an environment where the surreal dreamscapes of mavericks and eccentrics can flourish. Jean-Marc Montera’s home-made guitar table, various objects, and electronics forge metallic ribbons that twitch between the impossibly distant clangs of gigantic spores, while Maurizio (on home-made double-bodied string instrument and pedal effects) and Roberto (on alientronics, pedal effects, and modified electronic devices) set worms adrift in a zero-gravity aviary stocked with narcotized satsuma fowl. Roberto adds more disorientation to the trio’s fog-blurred horizon lines with wordless vocalizations that could pass for billowing laments hooted by mutant sea mammals with enoki mushrooms growing on their larynxes. Includes download card. Edition of 350.
