Since the passing of founding member Steve Gore in 2009, the massive archives of Rascal Reporters unreleased reel-to-reels, DATs and cassettes have been digitised, with never before heard material being made available via Bandcamp. Amongst the finished music however, there are many completely written pieces in the archives that never got the studio time and overdubbing they deserved. Until now.
2019 sees Steve Kretzmer introduce musician and producer James Strain to the band, to complete some of these songs for a new EP 'Redux, Vol. 1'. With the Redux series, these songs are finally coming to light, being fully produced, remixed and overdubbed with additional drums, bass, guitar and keyboards by new Reporters member James Strain.Rascal Reporters are currently at work on new studio album 'The Strainge Case of Steve', featuring guests Dave Newhouse (The Muffins), Guy Segers (Univers Zero), Dario D'Alessandro (Homunculus Res) & Kimara Sajn (Thinking Plague, Polyethelene Pet).
