'Maelstrom' the original album was selected from the raw material now presented here exclusively on Bandcamp in two volumes. On re-visiting the session tapes we found that we'd perhaps been unfairly harsh in
pruning down the material to just one album. By presenting the material in this way, the evolution of the material can be heard as it happened in real time, as we present the uncut improvisations from which the
final album was compiled.
Volume One documents the complete sessions from July 1999, presenting 3 CD's worth of material in the order in which it was recorded. After abstract beginnings, the material slowly gains shape as sequencer
patterns begin to build and take hold. It culminates in an extended hour long version of the closing section of the original album.
Head over to Bandcamp to purchase and download.

Do Electric Sheep Dream Of Space Rock?
This hour long collage of Radio Massacre International material consists of previously unreleased material from various sessions between 2003-15, and might be seen as their version of `The Faust Tapes' in its
construction. Endlessly fascinating, playing as a continuous suite, it is an unpredictable journey through many of the places RMI have found themselves in whilst working and improvising together.
