Three new Bandcamp Releases
Philadelphia Air Shot: This is an expanded version of our CD-R release Philadelphia
Air-shot, which consisted of the second set we recorded for WXPN Philadelphia's show 'Star's End' in 2007. A listener recently suggested that we revisit the first set we
recorded that night too, so here it is issued for the first time. We are somewhat puzzled why it didn't come out earlier, but what a pleasant surprise. On the night of broadcast,
show host Chuck Van Zyl played out the second set first, and vice-versa. We've included as a bonus, the off-air recordings from the 'Star's End' show complete with Chuck's
announcements, recorded back at the hotel when we should have been sleeping.
Another Air Shot: Two hour long improvisations in the WXPN studio, again pre-recorded for the 'Star's End' show due to
commitments elsewhere on the night of broadcast, but done under 'live' conditions nonetheless. There is some very 'edge of the seat' sequencing here, and some contrasting quiet to
lull the drowsy listener into a false sense of security before the sequencers come marching back. Two hours of prime 'tour-ready' RMI for your enjoyment.
Abbey: This was edited down to 21 minutes by the time it appeared on Lost In Space. Here is the session reel from August 1995 in
all it's uncut 67 minute glory...you'll hear the odd howler...we were still taming the MAQ sequencer back then...but this warts and all representation should give a good insight
into the real time working methods of RMI at this time.
