Vinyl LP pressing. 2012 album from the veteran Experimental/Noise artist NON AKA Boyd Rice. Back to Mono is a return to Boyd Rice's noise roots, and the first new album since 2002's Children of the Black Sun. Hailed as an influence by the likes of Marilyn Manson, Marc Almond and Wes Eisold from Cold Cave, Rice's contributions are both seismic and unquantifiable. 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. Credited with having developed a pioneering sampler; the 'Noise Manipulation Unit' Boyd delved into California's avant-garde scene in the late 1970s. Mute.
