rmi have always recorded everything. it seems daft for an improvising band not to. sometimes for one reason or another, things get forgotten about and filed away, particularly during periods of intense activity like this visit to the usa in 2010. during research for the expanded version of the 2007 session philadelphia air-shot, we checked out the 2010 session, none of which had ever been issued before. to our surprise, it turned out to be quite an enthralling and lively performance. 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..

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.
