RMI's 20th anniversary, free download of historic first session at Northern Echo !
Well, like many men we almost forgot our anniversary....in fact if the truth be known we're day late...but keep it under your hat....Today we released three new Bandcamp albums to celebrate 20 years of active service as Radio Massacre International.
Chorlton 2013 / The Conspirators / It Was 20 Years Ago Today
'It was 20 years ago today' is the newly, painstakingly restored first RMI session of October 2nd 1993, and is yours to download for free. An hour of music, the starting point from which RMI began accumulating many more hours of recordings for your listening pleasure over the last 20 years. Raise a glass and head over to Bandcamp to hear where it all began. Those of you lucky enough to own a copy of 'Lost In Space' will have heard edits of these two pieces, but for the first time the unedited session can be heard in all it's glory, and it's had us scratching our heads wondering how these pieces came to be so brutally chopped. The editing technology of the time is largely to blame.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, we have also released a fully remixed, and much improved version of our most recent UK concert at Chorlton St Clements Church, and a wild card from the archives featuring Max Noble on guitar...Radio Maxacre International.
Full details and sleevenotes are available by following the above links, here's to the next 20 years.
Thanks for all your support, without whom etc etc....
Steve, Duncan and Gary

"The Clouds Of Titan" Available Next Week

RMI News Update
Firstly, we'd like to apologise for the delay in releasing 'Clouds Of Titan', and those awaiting orders of our latest albums. We think the manufacturer is on holiday. Updates when we have them.
In the meantime, we continue to establish our pitch at Bandcamp, with an exclusive and largely unreleased session from August 1996. We recorded three pieces, totalling 2 hours, which were hurriedly edited into a 20 minute composite piece for a long forgotten compilation CD for SMD music, and then shelved.
One aim of our presence on Bandcamp is to present complete, unedited studio sessions which shed new light on some of our older recordings. Many pieces from the early Northern Echo era were heavily edited, (often with good reason of course), from extended improvisation and have existed in much longer form, untouched for nearly 20 years, and to mark the first 20 years of Radio Massacre International, we'll be making available complete sessions for the first time. Some of these will feature familiar material in it's orginal context, others will be completely unreleased. Be assured our usual quality control standards will still apply, but if we like it, it goes out!

RMI hits BandCamp!
This summer sees us finally get to grips with Bandcamp as a further means of distributing our music. What we like about it is that you can download in any format you like, and that each time you download, the artist gets paid instantly!
Give it a try with our special hour long piece `Last Rainy Day Under Right Song', which you can have for the princley sum of £1.
We'll be using Bandcamp to publish lots of archive goodies and new things as the fancy takes us. Look out for the pre-radio massacre international DAS albums, unedited studio sessions, live performances, solo work and whatever else we think you might want to hear. It doesn't mean we'll be stopping releasing CD's any time soon, more like we see Bandcamp as a way of developing quite an interesting archive which will be available at any time to download.
Any requests ?

The Clouds Of Titan
As some of you may know, our good friend Jeff Nutkowitz sadly passed away recently after a short illness. Jeff and his widow Cyndee Lee Rule were loyal supporters of RMI, (Cyndee has even contributed to several of our recordings), and when we recently visited the USA to play some dates, we were able to stage a special Living Room Concert for Jeff at their home, in conjunction with the Gagliarchives radio show.
In tribute to Jeff, and to raise money for his chosen charity, we have decided to make this recording available in our ongoing CD-R series. 'Clouds Of Titan' consists of two extended pieces performed that night in Trevose PA. All proceeds from the first 100 copies of this release will go to the Farm Sanctuary Organization.
Release date is expected to be August 15th.

New Releases Available Now !
After comparative lack of recent activity in the new release department, Radio Massacre International are releasing no fewer than six new albums and an all region DVD simultaneously.
The albums are in CD-R format, and consist of three brand new studio releases, 'Eavesdropping', 'Still' and 'Threads' and volumes 8-10 of the 'Lost In Transit' series, each recorded during their USA trip in 2010. Owners of the original Lost In Transit box will notice with delight that these discs will complete the set and fit exactly with the other seven volumes.
The DVD (RMI's first) features a professionally filmed, previously unreleased 2 hour concert from St Clement's Church, Chorlton, Manchester in 2011 in 5.1 surround sound audio.
Orders will start shipping on Tuesday 7th May but please bear in mind that the boys will be in the USA the following week, so shipping may be delayed during this time.
