It does seem weird that Trent specifically mentioned The Fragile as being an album he's be visiting a lot in the setlists this year, but they've only played "one" song off TF, once. Either planning something big, or it didn't turn out the way he wanted it to (it didn't turn out quite the way that he wanted it).

I'm actually wondering ? would you mind going to a NIN gig without MOTP / Wish (I just don't understand if people are saying they would miss those songs or are just surprised that they didn't play them).


Throw in this one a few Fragile songs to get it to 24/25 songs and it's perfect :)

Pretty good setlist for night three too. Did Ilan actually sit at his kit during night three? ;)

I don't know why people keep singling out The Fragile, when we're only three shows into 2014. These shows really seemed like just a warm-up trio - "let's see what we can do as a quartet." I'm expecting bigger things from the NIN + Queens tour.

That said, that's a great setlist. Tons of YZ stuff.

I don't know why people keep comparing the shows in Japan to "warm up" shows. I would find that offensive if I lived there. And, from what I can tell, Japanese audiences are one of TR's favorites, so I'd be shocked if he had that attitude toward the performances.

"something big" was the first thing i thought seeing this last setlist, too, but really it could just be something medium but just in early stages of development for later in the year. like, maybe Trent is planning out the Europe tour now so that is on his mind now, whereas the earlier shows were already planned rehearsed.

hooo nose . . .

I think the only reason why there was no MotP and Wish for the 3rd night is the fact that you can take out those songs when you play the same venue 3 nights in a row. Smart move.

Out of 20 songs, only four predate With Teeth. So basically this is designed to piss off anybody who hates everything he’s done since 1999. ;)

Volband
02-28-2014, 05:23 PM
Ooookay, 3 shows done, time to get (physical) critical.

The setlists from my subjective standpoint: It's OK, I guess. Wave Goodbye was pretty crazy, so a standardish setlist would be new for me, plus throw in some YZ stuff and there we go, probably half of the songs I'd see would be new ones. Still, I'm sad Disappointed is a go-to track from HM, and the lack of TF songs sadden me. I'd be fine with night 3's setlist though. TGD \o/

The setlists from my objective standpoint: Well, no Wish and MOTP could only mean some good stuff for the future dates, YZ is there after a long time, and we'll probably see MYM and Capital G too eventually. The lack of variety in the HM song selection is my main concern here, it'd be a pity if all the dates would get FMW/CBH/Copy of a/Disappointed +1. People should get the chance to have more variety from the new stuff. Again, if things we'll look like night 3, then everyone would get something cool, while Trent playing it rather safe.

The setlits from my godknowswhat-tive standpoint considering Trent's promises: LOL. I love how some say it's a warm-up tour. Sure, Trent and co. warms up at the very end of February, and 6 days later they will blast out tons of new songs. No way. Also, why would he need warm-up? The vast majority of the songs played have been played during the festival leg or Tension (or both); I doubt BYIT, Vessel and 31 Ghosts needed 3 days of warm-up. And don't even start with the "poor NIN, they probably did not have time to rehearse", when the started it after Tension, and it was an interview in FEBRUARY when Trent said this tour will be a blast with tons of TF stuff. Yeyeyeye, we could make up excuses fo him all day long, like he meant the other leg of the tour, or when he said this tour will be heavier, he meant the band members will gain weight, etc., but snap out of it. I don't doubt that the Fragile songs will eventually come (well, on second thought, I actually do), but something must be terribly wrong if that's all they could/wanted to squeeze out of TF. And where is the stuff they can finally do, being a 4-piece band? They returned The Becoming, that's cool, especially if it's not the still version they used to do, but it's really not much. Would it cause physical pain for Trent to just simply say "there'll be a lot of stuff from YZ" and end the sentence there? Because it's not heavy, and at night 3 there were more stuff from The Slip, than from TF. Like wtf.

There'll be more songs for sure, when they won't be limited by time (except when they'll lose the coinflip to QOTSA haha, man, I'd be so fucking mad then. wait, nevermind, our show got cancelled, so yeah.), but if Trent wanted to play/try out something really badly, he could. A random AATCHB or Love Is Not Enough might surface eventually for a show or two, but overall it's like Perf. 2007 but worse. We could always come up with something though. Now it's wait for the QOTSa tour, then it will be wait for the European tour, then it will be wait for the NA tour (which will be announced by then I guess), and then another year passed, while the wildest NIN-shit was the return of BYIT.

I like the involvment of MQ, and here I don't care that Trent went against his word. It gives me a fuzzy feeling that he can do a NIN show with his wife, and hell, if we won't get what we were promised (once again), at least throw in stuff like this. I guess playing HTDA songs is easier, than rehearsing some NIN songs, lol. I hope she'll sing on a NIN song as well. As fucking awesome and sexy it would be, I'm pretty convinced that Trent wouldn't drag her out for stuff like Sin/Deep/GDML (maybe ATL, it's HTDA-ish), because they could come off as jackasses in some people eyes (and they sing these songs at home anyway :D), but how fucking cool would it be to hear them on WITT or in LITS. These are the songs I could think of where it could work.

And yes yes, I should be grateful he even tours, and I want too much, and who cares what he promised, yesyes, save these please.

I think it's funny that Trent says something and he has to immediately deliver it on the first tour date lest he be called, in a roundabout way, a liar. We're THREE SHOWS into a set of tours that's probably going to last until the end of the year. Some of you need to cool your tits.

Also, you guys need to learn that your ideas and Trent's ideas may not be the same thing. People read that he was going to play more stuff from Year Zero and The Fragile and seemed to flip their shit over it. Did you ever stop to think that maybe he meant he was going to play more stuff from those albums OVERALL and not every single night? Besides, given how the setlists have varied just on these three dates, I don't see why people feel so betrayed.

Volband sorry I can't quote as the wall of text would be too annoying. It's not the setlist that bothers me so much as the production. I wish they would do something slightly less extravagant in the US and take it internationally, as with YouTube it feels like this amazing footage like Tension or LITS is in your face but then it's oh sorry rest of world, here's some white strobe lights!

I'm just bitter because we didn't even get the festival production in mainland UK!

I don't want to comment on the production just yet. Haven't seen footage of all the songs (I'm really curious about TGD), and that might change with the venue.

So I was procrastinating had some extra time today, and looked at all the setlists since 1994, when MotP was first played. Austin City Limits and last night's show were the only two full shows ever where both MotP and Wish were not played.

Not disagreeing with the over all message behind your post, just want to point out that while these songs have been played last year, the band setup was COMPLETELY different. I mean, really, we now have a drummer playing guitar. Don't act like this is the same band setup as it has been.

Also, I second the idea of "Trent promises: LOL" shirts.

I can understand people being annoyed at the lack of TF material, because TR explicitly said that there would be a bit, but I don't get any complaints about not varying the setlist up enough. After 3 shows there have been 35 different songs performed. A lot of people are comparing it to the 2007/09 tours, but it's really not that different.

After 3 shows:
2007: 36 unique songs
2009: 31 unique songs
2014: 35 unique songs

Yeah, we are all big fans and would love every show to be different, but we are the minority in the audience. There will probably end up being 45-50 unique songs played for the tour and I'd say that's a pretty good amount.

(and more obscure instrumentals too, like In Motion. Hand Covers Bruise is chilling though, and the transition into BYIT is awesome)

(although i shouldnt complain too much, i did get to hear my all time favorite instrumental live, A Warm Place. Prior to these film pieces and Tension 2013, the deepest of all NIN cuts!)

Am I the only one being struck by how much of what we hear seems to be coming from Pro Tools / Tape on those videos ?

I'm well aware that on the electronic songs we can expect to have a buch of things on tape but the live challenge is also to produce a reinterpretation of the original sounds with the gear they have on their hands.
When half of the sounds seems to be coming unaltered from the tapes it feels weird to me, and even if the blip-blip produced live are cool (and trust me, I LOVE blips blips) it sometimes feels more like a "not so live version" then a "stripped down" version to me. (Especially on the HTDA songs)

(I know this has always been kind of true with NIN live but for some reasons it seems to be even more true on this tour)

With that said I also have to say this version of Burn is kind of amazing.

It's not tape or Pro Tools. Alessandro triggers individual elements from his Elektron rig: http://elektron.se/talk/744

Javra
03-02-2014, 10:25 PM
As much as I love Alessandro, his work and what he brings to the live version of NIN, I highly doubt he "triggers" much in the live perfomance (beside the drum pads)

For what I know having read a few articles and the explanations he gave on muffwiggler concerning his live rig :

A few audio parts are fed to his Octatrack he uses for live tweaking (not even sure if that is still the case on the current tour)
Keyboards are sometimes midi fed and tweaked live or live played (I guess on this tour he uses the OP1, Elektron Analog Keys, I think he got rid of his A4, not sure if the DSI is still here)
I think the Soundplane (midi controller) is also out (can't tell much from the recent videos)
The Tascan tapes are used to bring in / out some ambiance / drones
I'd bet the Verbos Eurorack Modular (That replaced the MakeNoise one for what I know) is synced to an "audio" clock (like the EAR modular was) and is responsible for the recurrent high pitch / glitchy sounds you can here coming up sometimes. (really typical of the Buchla-like sequencing / LPG)

Also in this tour with how much he has to do with the bass or additional guitars I'd guess he has less freedom to bring ambiances / drones in the songs.
Just as an example you can compare those two pics of the tapes he uses on a show (And I'd guess less tapes = less drones played live, more drones on the Pro Tools)

Got a bit carried in my explanations but what I mainly wanted to say is that just by looking at the gear he has on stage you can kind of think they are more things on tape on this tour. And that from what I see they're isn't much getting "triggered", and less things getting "tweaked" on this tour.

Pro musicians have never really stopped using cassettes to do rugged, portable multi-track recording and playback. They hold four discrete tracks of audio, at higher speeds they don't sound too bad, plus they're dirt fucking cheap.

Poor choice of words on my part... the start of each song is cued offstage, and backing tracks are fed with it. That's why you can hear click tracks before the intro of some songs in the Studio Coast recordings on RITC. You're probably right that there are less on the TASCAM machine now, but the 2009 arrangements had a bunch of introductory sequencing cued by Trent's touch controller, which would then cut out after the count-in started and the backing took over.

Javra
03-03-2014, 12:08 AM
Well numeric is used by 99.9% of the pros when it comes to recording, portable setup or not.
I think here it comes down to their particular sound (depends heavily of the cassette and tape player) and the idea of having a constant flow of sound that you bring up or down compared to launching samples. Not sure if he also plays with the speeding/slowing effect you can get with a cassette.
I think it's a really cool and interesting approach like "okay I have 4 moving soundscapes per song that I can bring when I want they define my sound palette but I can mix and alter them as I want and I can't be 100% sure of how they're going to sound when I bring them up"

Also aly mentionned that he got the idea while playing with hurt having 1 chord on each track and bringing them up / down instead of playing them on a standart keyboard

botley You mean like in the WG version of Burn ? (Or the Echoplex version of LITS) or more like a drone that would cut at the start of the song ?

botley
03-03-2014, 12:24 AM
"Burn" and "Echoplex", yes, also the early (pre-WG) 2009 versions of "Terrible Lie" and "1,000,000" that started with Trent sequencing loops.

It is pretty brilliant to have a four-track machine onstage and mix those four channels in and out to get a playable tactile feel from pre-recorded drones. IIRC that's how Pink Floyd did the introduction to "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" using wine glass drones in the studio.

Javra
03-03-2014, 12:36 AM
Oh right I see (Mr Self Destruct in the WG shows also then). Even if that's cool it feels much more like an intro then anything to me.
Yeah I think it's a really interesting approach, he might also use it for pads or more melodic things on some songs.
The choice of hardware tapes might also be related to the whole "limitation and concrete instruments leads to creativity" approach

I don't like that they still have Ilan playing piano in MOTP ('doesn't it make you feel better' part), despite Ally being back in the band.
This song fucking needs that drum hit right before TR says 'Doesn't...', and now (and ever since 2009) it's not there since Ilan is running to the keyboard.

Totally ready for the facepalms here - but to be honest, I feel slightly conned - I invited friends along to this on the basis of 'look at this amazing show that NIN put on', referencing both Tension and LITS, and on the back of TR himself saying they'd be coming over with 'all the trimmings' on Zane Lowe's show, just before tickets went on sale (I think that was the timing anyway, certainly before and not after we bought tickets. Coincidence? I think not).

Don't get me wrong, I will undoubtedly still have the time of my life, but I now feel like I've kind of conned two friends into going on the basis of 'most elaborate show you'll ever see' - they're fans, but not 'sit on ETS for two hours a day' types...and to be honest, all three of us really wanted to experience something that ticked both musical and visual boxes. Leaves a slightly sour taste.

I'm prepared for the facepalms here as well, but...this IS your fault. You promised your friends something that you didn't actually KNOW you were going to get (Trent saying "all the trimmings" didn't mean full Tension production). You might have done a bit more research as well, since both Lights In The Sky and Tension productions never left the Americas and the shows in Europe are usually more stripped down in terms of production. Not trying to be an asshole about it, but blaming Trent is kind of silly.

Yeah, I kinda wonder if the Japan production is the same thing they'll bring down to South America. To tens of thousands of people at a time. On festivals. Which are broadcast to the world then uploaded to YouTube.

It reminds me of how they originally planned to "wing it" on the first reunion shows until they heard they were headlining the same festivals as the likes of Beyoncé, and "Beyoncé's not gonna wing it", so they came up with that really really awesome festival production. Not LITS-level, but still blowing every other act out of the water.

If they bring that exact same festival production to South America, I'll be very happy. I don't care if it's a repeat, it looked great and provided some setlist variety.

If they brought something of the festival production level to the UK I'd be very happy too. It doesn't have to be Tension or the 8 piece band, just something a bit special and not just white strobe lights that were actively irritating like in 2009, especially as they are playing arenas where a load of people will have crap views and not be able to see the band playing.

Yes. Sorry if that's a bitter pill to swallow, but it's the truth. Trent has never (to my knowledge) brought full production over to Europe on the tours that had full production, so why would you expect it? Because Trent makes some vague comment that boils down to the same thing that all bands say when they're embarking on a tour ("We're bringing it! Fuck yeah!")? You can be mad that he doesn't EVER bring it over, but to be mad about something he never promised in the first place is a bit ridiculous.

Disagree. Whatever history there was with European (and other territories) getting less than USA - understandably, I admit, due to the cost of carting that show around, the fact that he made a point of saying that, mid-Tension, suggested that was exactly what we were getting. What else could it have meant?!

Like I said, Trent's remark is basically the same thing that every band says before a tour that's being promoted. Unless he said "We're bringing the production over to the UK", I wouldn't have expected it. Trent's reputation on that subject supersedes any vague comments he might make.

Ok, Tension never left the US, you have a point there. But they brought LITS down to South America, which is even harder to do than Europe. I think Trent was just too bored of that format to bring it over to Europe.

Not to mention the festival production, which, as I said before, was not quite LITS, but it was far more than what they're currently doing. They took that shit to Asia, Europe, and the US.


I trust Trent, and I honestly believe we'll see a screen pop up when they hit festivals. As he said it himself, when it's just 4 guys onstage, it tends to lose people's attention. It won't lose mine, but I'm not the only person watching that gig.

We got the 3x3 lights in Vegas without the rest of the elaborate setup and I was amazed by all the cool shit they did with those. They're certainly orders of magnitude cooler than just the laser beam lights.

I just want everyone bashing QOTSA and JA to know that you just agreed with Bill. So there.

with that said though a NIN/FNM tour would easily make me cream my pants. But it's ok to agree with Bill when he makes his occasional positive comment about someone/something.

I'm not asking this to get into a "my band is better than your band" pissing match. It's an honest question. How much have you heard from FNM? I ask because it annoys me that they're considered a one hit wonder in America when that one song isn't even remotely close to their best. Not even in the same ballpark. QOTSA and JA (and I like both bands) can't even hold a candle to FNM at their best.

I'm beginning to think that whoever booked six arenas in the UK has made a big mistake. They didn't sell out two arenas back in 2009 so I can't see tickets for six arenas selling too well. I'd figured that the only reason for arena shows this time round was to get the big production in but that is starting to look ever so more unlikely.

I'm just hoping that they bring something like the screens they used for the European festivals last year. I caught that setup in its only arena show (Milan) and it was phenomenal. I actually preferred it to the tension show I saw in LA.

Indeed. I think Queens were at the top of their game last night and...I think they deserved to headline, which is a sad thing to say as a NIN fan. Maybe if NIN borrow the Queens bass player and screen, they could be on a more even footing! Both bands were great though and NIN still delivered even if it was only half of what NIN was last year.

$1 says they add a bass player before the European dates.

On a related note. Just listened to RITC's 2/28 boot, and well, uh not sure who is playing bass on "Various Methods of Escape" but he is pretty much failing. Cannot even find "the pocket." It sounds like a lousy cover band trying to cover the song. The fellas should really work on that.

The probably just need the extra hands. Shuffling that many intruments between 4 guys for an hour an a half to 2 hours can get quite tiring. I hope they add a 5th member for when the return to North America. It doesn't surprise me that they might be a little rusty, in the AMA on Reddit in December, didn't Trent say he was taking a break from practicing? That would imply they started practicing right away after tension ended, and then he probably gave everyone a winter break for the holidays around Christmas/New Years time and then resumed rehearsals maybe end of Jan / mid Feb before taking off to Japan. And that month and a half "break" he gave everyone he was probably working on The Gone Girl soundtrack day and night getting as much in before he left.

He's tired... He really needs the extra hired hands for this tour.

Exactly. Do we know why Pino Palladino is no longer touring member, if so, can someone direct me where I can read about it. I know why Josh Eustis left (really wish he stayed with them, but it's how it is...the same as Eric Avery and Adrian Belew before)...but why couldn't Pino stick around? Just for the sake of actually having a bass player, irrespective of stage presence.

I think he felt like he was given the shaft when Pino and the others stepped in and pretty much deemed him useless for half the show. They had to figure out what to give him, and he got stuck playing random crap like a triangle.

But, it could also be because he had previous commitments with playing with Puscifer for Maynard's birthday. Little bit from collumn A, little bit from collumn B... or a whole fuck lot from collumn A and collumn B was a last minute "I need a job" backup.

Pino's back with the John Mayer trio.... not sure if they're touring but they were on the Tonight Show the other day... Pino's on a level that i'm surprised he even stuck through that entire NIN tour. Eustis left to go back to doing his own thing, trying to get a Telefon Tel Aviv album out soon I believe in addition to Puscifer..

It could be that due to Tension production, Trent just doesn't have the $ to afford another member. Unfortunate sacrifices have to be made then. (Stupid non sold out shows in SoFLa)

Regardless of what YOU think of the song selection — and I really doubt TR thinks about trying to please us hardcore fans, most of the time — there is absolutely no rigidity to the setlist anymore. For the first time since 2009, there are zero restrictions on what opens the show (THEY FUCKING OPENED WITH "A WARM PLACE", WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK), what closes the set, what they do and don't have to play... and given how many songs have been rehearsed, that's pretty exciting.

More songs from Hesitation Marks could be used in the Australian tour in fact. "Satellite" would be awesome. I'm grateful that they're mixing things up a all. Songs from The Slip aren't necessary, although "Discipline" wouldn't go astray. Considering this is an arena tour with a lot of Queens fans in the audience, it seems unlikely they'd pull something obscure that hasn't been played (much or at all) live before. Though you would think if anything they would have the QotSA "Era Vulgaris" and "Kalopsia" duets given the opportunity. Or have Josh Homme play guitar on "Copy of a"...so far, there's been none of that but it's still early in this tour.

Agreed. It's a shame we don't get the 'full' production. I'd loved to have seen the backing singers, Josh and Pino at least once, along with the full lighting etc. I'm still hoping for at least a couple of HTDA tracks in the set-list @ Manchester and Nottingham.

Having had sometime to sleep on it , NIN/ Soundgarden should be good , would be amazing if NIN played mostly older stuff ( 3/4 of setlist is NON greatest hits). I'm thinking if NIN fails to keep up or match wits with the heavier Soundgarden songs , this tour will fail...

But yeah, I probably combined his videos and live albums together in my mind. There were also Reality tour CD, Santa Monica, Glass Spider CD (with different show), Beeb, Beeb bonus CD (2000 show), Nassau Coliseum, reissues of Stage and David Live, and almost all of it came in between 2000 and 2010.
I really hope that he releases Outside/Dissonance show on official CD or DVD one day.

Yes, I read that but I was unclear on if they meant NIN went on after Brody or after QOTSA.

NIN went on last. Really, really good show. Much better than Newcastle (did both). I assume setlist has been posted, haven't checked as still in hotel room recovering and trying to sleep. If not will post.

How is this not being discussed now?

http://www.antiquiet.com/music/2014/03/nin-soundgarden-tour-dates-nine-inch-nails/

The bad:

-Terrible venue choices by amphitheaters over venues/arenas
-No standing floor in many of these
-No Matt Cameron for Soundgarden (https://www.facebook.com/Soundgarden)

The good:

As far as the venues go, amphitheaters are probably cheaper to get than an arena.

Interesting that Robin & Ally have more shows under their belt than everybody else on their instrument combined. Would've guessed it for Robin since he's been there so long.

& pretty soon Ilan will move into #3.

Just checking the set list for the Perth gig. I note that On The Wing and Parasite were played with MQ. Now, I recall everyone have a hissy fit about the choice of HTDA tracks performed thus far, what with the Everything video being canned. I guess TR really does tune in on here frequently.

Trent is obviously in touch with what the fans (both casual and hardcore) want to hear live.

I remember Josh at one point saying they rehearsed it but were just unable to find a way to finish the song that sounded and felt right. Im sure someday with the right lineup and live 'focus', that we will hear TPD live. (I remember a time when Trent said no way in hell when it came to playing Last, and that got played. Same with A Warm Place (i dont think trent said he wasnt going to play that though, but its just another example of a deep cut making its way into the setlist)

It's not (and never was) about the lineup. It's about the arrangement and even more about TR's own attitude to the song. It already was far from being his favorite, and these rehearsals Josh mentioned pissed him off even more. With the amount of material they learn for each tour and tight rehearsals schedule, I doubt he'll want to spent more time on this song again.

I would not be so sure about that. He had Wave Goodbye, which he treated as a possible last NIN tour ever. TPF wasn't even at a setlist. I really don't get Trent's song selection. It makes sense he doesn't like all of his songs. so he doesn't play them (TPF, Deep), or he can't sing them (WITT, Sunspots), but then he said things like The Collector was his favourite track from WT, yet it was barely played. He also said he's fucking tired forcing himself into moods he's just not in for certain songs, yet he still plays Wish (26 years on his way to hell, while touring with his wife and having 2 kids, mhkay) or The Wretched (now we know how it feels like being happy. you can try to fucking stop it, but it keeps on coming!!!).

I like these songs, I'm just saying it doesn't makes any sense to me. The only thing I didn't meantion is how well a song translates into a live version, but if he feels like the 3 minute ending of Disappointed when the band sounds like some native african musicians is something cool, then I don't see how [insert song here] is barely or never ever played.

And again..... while I agree TPD will probably never be played All The Love in the World was also not on any Wave Goodbye setlists either.

But the show isn't just for Trent's mood, it's also for the thousands of people who paid to be there. Not playing Purest Feeling or AATCHB isn't as bad as not playing a high charting, popular, and fan favourite single. Maybe he doesn't want a drug reference because he's clean ... but then there's Parepin all over YZ. Even if he really hates it (like Kinda I Want To), he didn't even play it on what might've been the last show.

Sure, he doesn't owe us any particular song, but this long without it, I'd really like to know why it's never reared its head.

I think it comes down to the actual DEMAND for the song, which seems to be fairly low among fans. I'm talking about the fans who REALLY want to hear it, not the passive fans who are like "Yeah, that might be cool". I'd like to hear it live, but I can think of a bunch of other songs I'd like to hear first. That, and I don't think a live performance would be able to compare to the studio version.

Whenever I relisten to TPD now I tend to think its not as good a song as I used to hear. It's quite possible that it doesn't merit the investment to play because it's just not that great. And, with 4+ albums since, fairly obscure now.

Really? I never saw it as a song about addiction. I also didn't figure he'd be addicted at age 24. I still see it as a song about fucking, but different interpretations and whatnot, right? If anything, some Fragile stuff he still plays has more to do with drugs, or recalls that period of addiction, more than TPD.




Speaking of Sanctified, I was surprised to see Ilan is playing bass on it. Was Alessandro not up to the task?


Also, I remember how awesome Alessandro sounded playing bass for HTDA. Then I listened to the version of Piggy NIN are playing now, and it doesn't even sound like the same person. Then some songs like Terrible Lie seem to have their bass parts removed altogether. If you ask me, having no synth player (2009) made more sense than no proper bass player (2014). I'm fine with the band playing to a tape of the stuff they can't reproduce live. I don't care if it's just Trent pressing Play on some device when the song starts, as long as there's a proper bass guy - the 4-piece format is more "rock" anyway, and I think bass is more important in that setting. As much as I think Alessandro was playing great with HTDA, it doesn't seem to be the case right now - which makes no sense, because it's the same guy. I hear Beck only starts touring in mid-April?

But what do I know, I'm watching YouTube videos. Anyone who's actually seen the 4-piece care to comment on Alessandro's bass skills?

He made a (probably joking) mention once that it was about a crack pipe I believe.
