This collection represents another high water mark for RMI. It was during this period the we played at Klemdag 1997, and indeed the first disc represents part of the preparation for that major concert in Nijmegen.

In early 1998, using 'Plastered In Paris' as a starting point, RMI resolved to make the best double CD we could and play to our strengths. There is a continuity to these pieces which were all recorded in a short and intensive time frame, sometimes literally one after the other.

There is much here which was unreleased, and those pieces which were released are presented in unedited form for the first time.

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.
