Some of it might be familiar; maybe you were there, at the concert... All of these pieces were made up on the night, before we started to prepare pieces for our live performances. It's a bit less polished because of this, but we like it. This disc forms a companion to "Upstairs Downstairs."

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.
