Antisocial was recorded live at The Brudenell Social Club in Leeds in June 2005, and is released here for the first time. The title refers to the fact that we played at some volume, and for an uninterrupted hour and a half. The piece moved through several different sections which have been indexed and titled even though the piece is continuous. Other notable features of this performance were that one of Gary's speaker cabs had to be physically assaulted to calm it down, and Duncan managed to lose a filling mid-performance. The percussion set up included a baking tray full of pennies, all of which were subsequently donated to the Social Club's collection for much needed soundproofing

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.
