This and Zabriskie Point were completed at a time in the band's life when we couldn't release albums as quickly as we were recording them. They are therefore presented ipso facto as archive releases. 'God' was significant in that it was built from separately recorded sections to form an hour-long exploration of the band's darker/denser side. Sonic exploration is the order of the day although parts two and four incorporate R.M.I.'s traditional sequencer patterns, and part six provides a little light relief in the form of a guitar led piece a la 'A Minute's Silence'. Oh and yes, that is our very own thunderstorm at the end, recorded during the making of the album.

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.
