Another principle of our private releases is to allow the experimental side of the group's music to be heard. This themed album is not full of pop songs. It is work that the group is particularly proud of, and which spontaneously conjoured up images of the Gulf conflict; we rarely set out with a creative agenda and this is a good example of how our music takes on a meaning of it's own.

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.
