It was in 1995 that Ill Bill, Goretex and Sabac, three
veteran Brooklyn emcees, got together with DJ Eclipse
and formed Non Phixion. Just six months later, they
released their first single: "Legacy" b/w "No Tomorrow,"
which went on to sell over 10 000 copies worldwide.
The Future Is
Now (Uncle Howie)
originally recorded for this very label and a constant
"coming soon" staple of these very updates for years,
the mega delayed, mega destructive full-length debut
from Sabac, Ill Bill, Eclipse and Goretex is finally
in the shops. Timely stuff in today's politically charged
climate, Non-Phixion are kings of uneasy listening no
matter what label they're on.
07/12/00 The Future Is Later than Now,
and its not part of our future anyway.
We regret to announce that Matador will not be releasing
Non Phixions upcoming debut album The Future
is Now. After months of preparations for the release
of this album, the group have reached the conclusion
that Matador is not the right label for them. While
we wish they had made this decision prior to signing
a contract or recording the album, we see no reason
to stand in their way and we look forward to reaching
an amicable settlement. We remain fans of Non Phixions
music and sincerely wish them all the success in their
06/21/00 Non Phixion
Good things come to those who wait, and even better
things come when we decide to stop waiting. The long-awaited
Non Phixion debut album, The Future is Now
has been moved forward to a September 26 release date.
With production work from luminaries like Premier, Large
Professor, Necro and Pete Rock, and staples of Non Phixions
live set like The C.I.A. Is Trying To Kill Me,
If You Got Love and the recent single Black
Helicopters, this is shaping up to be a devestating
album. More news on singles, tours and documentary videos
04/07/00 Starting next
wednesday night, you can hear an internet simulcast
of a Non Phixion performance, recorded live last
week on Montclair, NJs WMSC by heading over to
TPLN.net. TPLN are
out of Toronto, if youre keeping track.
Non Phixions Ill Bill was just
interviewed by New York's UPN affiliate, Ch. 9 for their
evening news program. Ill Bill has an upcoming solo
12" entitled "How To Kill A Cop" which the hard-hitting
journalists at Ch. 9 must've thought was controversial.
Meanwhile, the Rudy Giuliani 12" "How To Gun Down An
Unarmed Civilian" has been pulled from our release schedule.
Just back from showing the Gavin Convention
how it's done, Non Phixion are playing at the
Wetlands on 3/1 for a Stop Police Brutality event with
Reflection Eternal and others. Non Phixion's performance
will be brief, so don't say we didn't warn you. Which
reminds me, how do you stop police brutality? Beat yourself
up! Wait a second, that's the one where you're supposed
to help the police out. But it would probably serve
the same function if you really thought about it --
pretty hard for the police to brutalize you if you've
already done the job on your own. On the other hand,
this might be too much to think about. Maybe you should
just shell out the cash to see Non Phixion. [...]
