New Releases Available Now !
After comparative lack of recent activity in the new release department, Radio Massacre International are releasing no fewer than six new albums and an all region DVD simultaneously.
The albums are in CD-R format, and consist of three brand new studio releases, 'Eavesdropping', 'Still' and 'Threads' and volumes 8-10 of the 'Lost In Transit' series, each recorded during their USA trip in 2010. Owners of the original Lost In Transit box will notice with delight that these discs will complete the set and fit exactly with the other seven volumes.
The DVD (RMI's first) features a professionally filmed, previously unreleased 2 hour concert from St Clement's Church, Chorlton, Manchester in 2011 in 5.1 surround sound audio.
Orders will start shipping on Tuesday 7th May but please bear in mind that the boys will be in the USA the following week, so shipping may be delayed during this time.
Head to our purchase page to order!

2 new RMI-Related releases now available!
There are two new albums released on our friend Martin Archer's Discus label, both of which have substantial input from RMI members. You can listen to a compilation of extracts from both of them by visiting Martin's website. There is a special offer for anyone who pre-orders both titles before 31 Oct 2012 - £18 the pair including p&p worldwide. You can order via PayPal on the Discus site, or through us.
Discus 40CD (double)
Orchestra of the Upper Atmosphere
£12.50 inc p&p worldwide
For the last couple of years, as well as developing his solo music, Steve Dinsdale has been recording and gigging with the ambitious OUA band. Built around the twin keyboards of Martin Archer and Chris Bywater, plus Steve's own synth and drums, the band also includes Walt Shaw on percussion and Terry Todd on bass plus a rotating cast of violinists. The album also features real voice, string and horn sections. It's a big project and a big listen which has taken almost three years to create. Broadly, OUA is an improvisation based rock band referencing Terry Riley, Magma, Alice Coltrane, and prog / Krautrock styles generally.
Discus 41CD: Julie Tippetts & Martin Archer
£10.00 inc p&p worldwide
Veteran vocalist Tippetts has had a career which began in the 60s when, as Julie Driscoll, she was recognised as one of the UK's premier jazz / pop / soul vocalists as part of Brian Auger Trinity. Following that she forged a long career in jazz and improvised music often as part of groups lead by husband Keith Tippett. Julie and Martin have been making records as a duo since 2009, and this is the third. Their first, Ghosts of Gold, was voted a top 40 album of 2009 by Wire magazine.
Surprisingly for fans of both artists work who may well be expecting a further slice of abstraction, this is basically an album of atmospheric beats based songs, and represents a return to her musical roots which has been enthusiastically grasped by Julie. With substantial contributions from Gary Houghton on lead, rhythm and glissando guitars on around half the 13 tracks, as well as co-writing a couple of the tunes, this will be an opportunity for RMI fans to hear Gary's guitar highlighted in a completely different context.

Concerts & Banished, Vanished, Tarnished and Varnished
Radio Massacre International will play The Awakenings Concerts, Paget High School, Burton On Trent, UK on Saturday 20th October 2012. Details can be found here.
Steve Dinsdale makes his solo performance debut at E-Day Festival, Theatre DeEnck, Oirschot, The Netherlands. Saturday April 28th 2012. Details can be found here.
Recording is planned for some time in the summer, where Radio Massacre International will work on a new album. Meantime, archives are being trawled for interesting fragments of the band's history which will see the light of day in a series of free monthly downloads on this website, under the theme: Banished, Vanished, Tarnished and Varnished. Unpublished recordings, interviews and other ephemera, will form a series of glimpses into the unheard history of RMI, beginning with their take on Can's Mother Sky, rehearsed in preparation for their first gig with Damo Suzuki, but swiftly dismissed by the great man, who rightly said on the day of our meeting, "better to have no concept".
