Might!, together with other NON releases, ‘Easy Listening For Iron Youth - The Best of Non’, ‘God & Beast’, ‘Receive The Flame’ and ‘Terra Incognita-Ambient Works 1975-Present’ have been unavailable on CD for some time. They are now available again.

Might! is partially a return to the hard noise extremity of the earliest NON recordings, but with a revised perspective on the use of words and sounds. It is a journey through Ragnar Redbeard's "Might Is Right" set to the hurricane conductor's baton:

"The words on this recording are nearly a hundred years old, and are taken from MIGHT IS RIGHT, an obscure little book by a man called Ragnar Readbeard (who may have been Jack London writing under a pseudonym)."

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).

Credited with having developed a pioneering sampler; the ‘Noise Manipulation Unit’ Boyd delved into California’s avant-garde scene in the late 1970s. Rice was to become the one of the first signings to Miller’s revolutionary Mute label and a 30-year partnership began with the issue of ‘Knife Ladder.’

Boyd Rice / NON announced the release of a new album, Back To Mono, in October 2012. 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.
