& so we find ourselves once again in the shadow of the enormous invisible lottery-funded liphook radio telescope, next to the police station that no one uses. This time we have with us the distinguished & versatile Martin Archer.

This is a multitrack recording of the band's totally improvised set at Hampshire Jam 8 on Halloween

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.
