the audience at the jodrell bank concerts of 2000 will remember that there was a boxed set available late that year, gathering together the best of the concert series. our contribution differed from the others in that we decided to add material from a concert we played two weeks later in the netherlands. in trying to decide which parts of the two concerts to include, i had them playing simultaneously in my audio-edit software. this was possible because we'd done more-or-less the same set on both occasions. the idea then came to us to leave the performances layered in various ways where it worked, & to pick the better of the two recordings where it didn't. this, then, was the result, & we now make it available again with the original "internal use" artwork.

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.
