This first non CDR release on our own label, features material recorded in April 2001, at a single session by Duncan and Steve and overdubbed under similar time constraints by Gary in Manchester. We have always embraced the "on the day" approach to recording believing that a certain magic of occasion is captured in the process. We left the pieces long this time, the wonder of compact disc is that it allows for both quality and quantity. Each piece has a rhythmic section driven by sequencers and drum machine, as well as long meditative excursions into the heart of darkness. The title is a phrase grabbed from an undisclosed TV show, which is both a direct reference to the physics involved in the music we make and an apt description of the end result. 'Echoes' was named due to the accidental but obvious Pink Floyd reference in this track, and also because everybody has a piece called 'Echoes' somewhere in their catalogue. This is ours.

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.
