Interview with Boyd Rice Monday Night on the Delirious Insomniac Freeform Radio Show

On the evening of Monday, April 11th at Midnight Central Time, The Delirious Insomniac Freeform Radio Show is proud to present a rare interview with industrial music innovator and counter-cultural maven Boyd Rice. Tune in on, 88.7 FM Chicago . The show will also be aired on www.RadioKL.Hr in Split, Croatia on Wednesday, April 13th, at 8pm Central, and archived at

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.
