NON is actually the one-man task of sound monger and provocateur Boyd Grain, whose solo function is virtually interchangeable with this released under his NON alias. Rice’s initial function, originally entitled The Dark Album, contains looped items of gal group and bubblegum pop music worked right into a numbing drone; it had been released in 1981 by Mute beneath the name Boyd Grain. Subsequent NON produces just like the antagonistic Physical Proof (1982) as well as the textured sound of Bloodstream and Fire (1987) pressed the limitations of aural ease of access. A compilation of NON’s ’80s materials, a few of it non-LP, premiered in 1991 beneath the name Easy Hearing for Iron Youngsters. Within the middle-’90s, Grain revived NON frequently; 1992’s Within the Shadow from the Sword centered on sociable Darwinism, while 1995’s May! was an opus of musically supported poetry influenced by writer “Ragnar Redbeard”‘s (probably Jack port London) Might Can be Best. NON released the recording God and Beast in 1997, which sported the clearest creation up to now on the project’s functions. Receive the Fire adopted in early 2000 and Kids from the Dark Sunlight in 2002, the second option along with a Dvd and blu-ray 5.1 mixture of the album. While Grain was energetic in collaborations along with function under his personal name, it might be almost ten years until NON came back with its following appropriate full-length, 2012’s Back again to Mono. The recording stepped from the minimalism and atmosphere that had arrived at define NON, embracing once again the harsh sound and hateful shades from the project’s beginnings.
