this is the quickest 'from idea to published' album you will probably ever see from rmi. having noticed that 11th october 2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the big 1997 concert in nijmegen about 2 hours
ago, and finding that i had no desk recording, i contacted duncan who uploaded his copy and made artwork into the bargain !
so here we are 20 years ago, hitting the concert hall stage in holland at klemdag. quite a heady experience. you may already know this concert from the bridge too far release of
the time....we used an ambient recording instead of the desk recording (probably because wanted the hall ambience and applause !) .
here is a much cleaner and hi-fi version which has been lurking in the vaults, and which also boasts the (unheard since the day) intro performance of 'organ harvest' which was missing from the published album
altogether and which is rather nice..
so, not so much 'remastered' as 'taken from a completely different source'...ie the mixer. (steve d 00:26 11/10/2017)

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.
