Boyd Rice / NON’s first release was what is known as the Black Album (1975). “When I started to compose and perform noise music in the ‘70s there simply were no other noise groups.” As noise became more commonplace, Rice moved into more subtle and complex recordings. Explains Rice, “Back to Mono was my attempt to demonstrate that the genre I created still had room to grow; that it could still be re-imagined.”
Physical Evidence, a compilation of Boyd Rice’s works produced between 1977-1982 will be released on Mute for first time on CD in autumn 2013, following the success of Back To Mono.
Boyd recently appeared on Neon Indian’s ’Era Extrańa’ which features his remix of the track ‘Halogen’, the release also includes remixes from Twin Shadow, Actress, Patten and Optimo. Full details – HERE
