RMI Finish Their Bandcamp Year With A Flourish

On Friday December 1st 2023 RMI will publish an archive collection which has been in the pipeline for some time, featuring many hours of unreleased recordings from mid-nineties sessions at their Northern Echo studio. Much of this was distilled into very concise extracts for the album Organ Harvest, but here for the first time are the original sessions as they happened, with plenty of interesting diversions along the way.

It will be released simultaneously in Three Volumes, each featuring 4 x CD length selections of material, and forming a coherent 12CD survey of the period up to and including the Organ Harvest album. For more information, click here to see volume one, here to check out volume two, and volume three can be seen here.

Stars' End Session: For Chuck's Sake

In the glory of late June/early July 2021 in England, our national football team was flying high, and RMI were lucky enough to be together in the same time and place for the first time in quite a long while, to record once again (in between football matches), this time in the wonderful surroundings of a cottage in Castleton, North Yorkshire courtesy of our wonderful and generous friends Wayne and Karen.



We were able to spend several days in leisurely fashion recording what we wanted when we wanted, and as we were staying on the premises it was a real 'getting it together in the country' situation with cups of tea in endless supply great dinners with our hosts and copious amounts of red wine and music in the later hours with no neighbours to disturb.



The weather was typically English and gave us glorious blue skies one minute and angry downpour-laden clouds the next. Both of these served their purpose and played their part in the recording and photographs. We stood a microphone out the back of the cottage to gather some authentic atmosphere while worked on new material.



One of the projects we had been asked to look at was a new session piece for old friend and Philly legend Chuck Van Zyl on Stars End on WXPN Radio to be broadcast as an exclusive for the show. What you actually hear are two pieces from different days skilfully joined together but nonetheless improvised in timeless RMI fashion and totally brand new.



It was a wonderful week !

BROADCAST DATE 10/10/21



radio massacre international's sound defies categorization it is more magical than musical. the music is, first and foremost, improvisational. it is loose in structure but also searching. r.m,i. is all about generating the happy accidents that occur at the ever-changing intersection of multiple moving bodies. when two sequences converge fascinating things happen opening rhythmic and textural options that just moments before were closed to view. it is the creation and exploration of those options that dominates what r.m,i. does in its music.
