These archival rarities of Boyd Rice and NON constitute a kind of lost chapter in the early history of Boyd Rice. Most hasn’t been heard in 35 or 40 years or wasn’t even remembered by the artist anymore. A few were only recently rediscovered after having gone missing for the last several decades. The lion's share of this material is being released here for the very first (and perhaps last) time ever.
Find out why early critics considered NON to be the loudest, noisiest, most minimal group ever to set foot on stage in a rock venue.



Boyd Rice is one of the most provocative and debatable underground figures of the post-punk era. A pioneering noise musician and countercultural maven, from the late 1970s to the present he has worked in an array of capacities, playing the roles of: musician, performer, artist, photographer, essayist, interviewer, editor, occult researcher, filmmaker, actor, orator, deejay, gallery curator and tiki bar designer, among others.

    First coming to prominence as an avant-garde audio experimentalist (recording under the moniker NON), Rice was a seminal founder of the first wave of industrial music in the late 1970s. In the 1980s, through collaborations with Re/Search Publications, Rice further endeared himself to the underground with recountings of his uproarious pranks and the promotion of "incredibly strange" cult films. Rice's influence on subculture was further exerted through his forerunning exhibition of found photographs and readymade thrift store art, as well as his adamant endorsements of outsider music, tiki culture and bygone pop culture in general.
