Boyd Rice gets around like a cat in heat. He’s worked with everyone up to and including Frank Tovey, Coil, Chris and Cosey, and David Tibet. Now he is teaming with Wes Eisold of Cold Cave to bring doom, gloom, and that wonderful brew of industrial he does so well to exactly 10 cities in North America.
Really, here’s hoping this is the tour he finally pulls out all the stops and goes full Tiki. No more black curtains, hyper-bright aggressive spotlights, and ambiguous use of Nazi imagery. It’s time for little wooden Tiki idols, Hawaiian shirts, and Zombies with little fiddly umbrellas in them. His synthesizer will be covered in dashboard hula girls that’ll be rocking out right along with him. Maybe he can draw little pentagrams on their tummies, just to keep all parties satisfied. I don’t know if all this would fit with his most recent album, Back to Mono, which I’d imagine is the focus of this tour, but a boy can dream. Maybe dreaming hard enough will get us all an appearance by The Rock Cats.
