Here is another unique recording from the extensive RMI archive, and one which has escaped the Bandcamp net until now. Available as an mp3 'virtual ticket' at the time, the set has been edited and remixed with the benefit of hindsight, and is presented here in lossless audio.

The second of our three visits to The Paget, this concert came at the end of a few days recording and prep, the results of which found their way on to the 'Threads' and 'Still' albums. It is their spirit which pervades much of the improvised set.

Surprisingly spacious and relaxed, here is the sound of us taking our time in front of a receptive audience.

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.
