noise pioneer/art terrorist/proto-industrialist
=bladerunnercore is for pussies.
boyd rice has been around forever(first release, 'the black album' came out in '75.)
a fascinating and controversial figure.
whether he was pranking or serious, it can be hard to tell at times (e.g. flirting with fascism ala throbbing gristle.). transgressive is the best word to describe.
and, whether he is (or was) an asshole, he was way ahead of his time. Look him up on interwebs for more info. I urge all dogmatic BR dj's do this.
I would announce on-air as follows: Non a.k.a. boyd rice.
(question: if the transmitter is turned off, and nobody is listening to kzsu, does it make a sound?)
MR. ESQ. SEZ: MEOW MEOW MEOW MEC-(THAT'S HALF AN 'O')
FCC CLEAN.
RIYL:THROBBING GRISTLE, WHITE HOUSE, THE NORMAL, WEST GERMANS, DRUGGED OUT ASSHOLES, ET AL.
PLAY THESE TRACKS: 1, 4, 7, 9, 10, 11.
1. starts sultry, and drones...
2. really jarring. the toilet has an air raid siren when flushed (do they have these in japan?)
3. buzz saw of eternity.
4. live. scary invocation stuff. (the pagans love it!)
5. will make you dizzy and throw up if you listen too long. like a tilt-a-whirl.
6. insect apocalypse.
7. live. will also make you sick, but pretty cool.
8. live version of track 3. better live.
9. PURR-FECT II: reprise of track 1.
10. actual vocals and words. very throbbing gristle
=nazi fetishist death march.
11. PURR-FECT: awesome cover of tune by the normal.
according to mr. rice: "the best electronic pop song -bar none." he may be right about that one.
