Two new Bandcamp Releases!

The Road To Zabriskie Point
One of Radio Massacre International's pivotal works `Zabriskie Point' is now featured in an expanded edition on Bandcamp. For the first time the studio sessions leading up to their MTV co-host in 1996, (and subsequent `Zabriskie Point' album), are released in full. Also making its debut in audio form are performances and out-takes from the MTV session, and to round the set off there is a newly unearthed and restored session from 1980, featuring the original recording of `Zabriskie Point' made by Duncan, Gary and Steve when they were just 17 ! From a home studio in Teesside, to a TV studio in Central London and air time on MTV Europe...we present `The Road To Zabriskie Point'.

The Shuttle Album
An early foray into space-rock, this album really is like nothing else in the RMI catalogue. Spontaneously created during the space shuttle expedition of 1981, it stands alone as a one-off. Featuring echo guitar, copicat drums, descant recorder and the Duncan Goddard single delay Roland SH1000 technique, as well as found tapes, dialogue and unsuspecting studio guests. Somewhat anarchic in spirit, it never the less takes shape as the album progresses and features some fine passages of primitive space music, amid the fearlessness of youthful experimentation.

Live Show Annoucement + New Track Available (Kinda...)

RMI will play the B-Wave festival in Belgium on 14th November 2015. We are proud to be invited to an event which has played host to many top line artists over the last few years.



And in the meantime, there is a brand new hour long RMI piece available for streaming which we put together for the ultra cool Velvet Sheep website, our tribute to the Greenhouse in Stockport which had been our base for some fifteen years, and has sadly now been sold off for no doubt less than artistic purposes....this is a composite of previously unreleased snapshots of our time there. We don't know if it will ever be released on CD or anything, so grab it while you can ! Get it here...

Gary guests on Martin Archer/Julie Tippetts album

Gary has annouced that work he did last year with Martin Archer and Julie Tippetts is finally seeing the light of day.



Gary says that "I am pretty pleased with the results - it goes to show that a man and a strat can make a contribution even on some pretty complex, jazz leaning material." Martin goes on to say that ...we'd like the listener to think of this work as being part of a lineage which builds not just on all the music we've both made over the last decades, but which might also include major statements such as Centipede's Septober Energy, Soft Machine's Third, or Carla Bley's Escalator Over The Hill. That's the scope we're chasing."

Head on over to the Discus Music website for sound samples and a place to purchase the new release.

The Road To Zabriskie Point

 
35 years ago this month (July 2015), three 17 year old lads were using their college summer break wisely by writing and recording music. 16 years later they were in a studio in London recording a session for broadcast based on the same music for the MTV Europe channel. Here for the first time is the full audio from both sessions, presented as 3 discs worth of music. Also newly released for the first time are more early explorations in the form of The Shuttle Album


Both are available for download now!
