    Trentticus

    so is Atticus like a full-time member of NIN now or what

    he collabs on everything Trent touches, he's in another band with Trent and Trentwife, he probably resides in the fucking guest house at this point.

    seems like Atticus is the most permanent member of NIN whose name isn't Trent

    has this been discussed before? I've been out of the loop on ETS for awhile

    I prefer "Tratticus"

    NIN is still officially "Trent Reznor". That being said, Atticus has been with NIN since With Teeth, has worked on over half the discography and does a HELL of a lot of stuff. I think he's as close to being "in" NIN as it's possible to be in-studio, and Robin Finck the same for live, due to his one billion and seven performances.

    Rob is in HTDA (although not according to Wikipedia editors), is he in NIN, or a member of NIN (like the live band members)?

    No. He is the art director for both bands.

    Atticus is a core NIN collaborator but NIN is still TR and always will be.

    Check your liner notes, he's listed as a band member for HTDA, on the EP anyway

    You should come up with a catch phrase to say every time you out NIN someone.

    I'm with the Wikipedia nerds on this one. They could list Barack Obama in the liner notes too but until he actually starts ripping awesome synth leads he's no band member. Rob doesn't play any music on the EP.

    ^ I see your point, but - I think HTDA is meant to be more than just music - like the visual side of things is just as important, and Rob is part of that.
    Also, HTDA says Rob is 'in the band' shouldn't we take the band's word over Wikipedia which was not put together by the band?

    Sounds like the perfect band member, yeah?

    Sorry, I should have been more specific - he is the Art Director and official photographer... at least I'm pretty sure he is the Art director...

    the argument about Rob being in the band reminds me of the argument about Fletch's role in Depeche Mode. His main role isn't about the music either, but he's still in the «band». What's a band anyway? A name to tag a group of person working together on a same musical project? You know, they are entirely entitled to include Rob in there...

    If anyone can produce another source (an interview maybe, or a periodical review of the EP... basically anything that Rob himself did not design) claiming that Rob's in the band, I'll update Wikipedia to include it. I've only ever heard TR say that the *band* was him and Atticus with Mariqueen. If HTDA also happens to be the name of some nebulous art collective, which includes all four of them, then that's a different story.

    If I had that, I'd do it myself and add a big fucking bitchslap to the WP editors :P. Aside from liner notes, he's never listed, but don't forget some blogs don't even list Atticus. And I've seen one not mention Q.

    I tried asking him on twitter (he responds to me sometimes) but he didn't answer.

    I think it is safe to refer to Atticus as an unofficial member of Nine Inch Nails. I mean, look at the credits for Ghosts I-IV.
