Boyd Rice & Friends
Boyd Rice is a complicated, misunderstood guy. A one-time San Franciscan, central to American industrial culture, a noise and performance artist, and cultural critic, he is best known for his ambiguous, misanthropic monologues. He has at one time or another been called "the most hated man in America" which could only be true if anyone had ever heard of him. His work is kitschy, irreverent, ironic, yet sinister. Some of his detractors fail to recognize the central romantic vision: civilization's decline, stifling conformity and the death of creativity.
