    That link is weird. If I click on it, it takes me to a dead page, but if I copy and paste, it is fine.

    Really happy to see that Ilan is finally being used to his full potential, though.

    Bit of a bizarre one here... from The Inbetweeners: Fwends Reuinited which yes, was largely awful. But anyway... in the super-fan quiz segment presenter Jimmy Carr refers to one of the contestents as 'the guy from Nine Inch Nails' - due to his long dyed black hair and black rock style clothing. https://www.channel4.com/programmes/...mand/68795-001 (around 51 mins)

    In an effort to put this thread back into rails I'll share something that doesn't fit the thread.

    Spotted a short film competition by Ryuichi Sakamoto in 2017, same as Ghosts in its time, but using tracks of his album "async", except he delivered with a blu-ray of a 5.1 surround version of the album and the winning short films :

    http://www.sitesakamoto.com/

    https://www.discogs.com/fr/Ryuichi-S...lease/12671339

    Interesting thing is that his career has lots of parallels with Reznor : making albums, having great success, then making film soundtracks, working with Bowie..

    edit : this post is now out of context, thank the admins lol

    Where should a TR/AR-loving Ryuichi Sakamoto newbie start out?

    It's different, but as good. I think The Revenant Soundtrack by him and Alva Noto might be close.
    Then you got his most recent album, async which is more abstract but so fucking good. There's still piano and synths to grip on. He describes it as a soundtrack for an imaginary Tarkovsky film. And I recommend watching the documentary Coda before. This delves into the fact that he had cancer while making this album, and the soundtrack before, and his increasing concern with the state of things, considering Fukushima. He got better though, fortunately. Bonus.

    Then you have one of my favorites of his, B-2 Unit, his fourth-ish album from 1980, where at some places he tries out some protoproto-industrial, still in the realm of progressive electronics. The cool thing is that at that time he can effortlessly move between very advanced synthpop (technopop) and more progressive (well, in a different way) and experimental stuff. Still rooted into japanese music. Thousand Knives is a banger. And try out some Yellow Magic Orchestra albums at some point. Solid State Survivor is from 1979 and it goes hard.

    Later on it's more ambient, with Cendre, for example, a collaboration with Fennesz and a good amount of glitch.

    And like with Trent, it always goes back to piano, at some point, or in some way. Lots of albums are only piano. Manipulated or not. With added synths or not. He made basically one album a year since 1978 so there's material.

    To add (off-topically) to the above, all of his collaborations with Alva Noto are worth checking out. The albums 'Vrioon' and 'Insen' are good starting points. And don't forget his early synth work in Yellow Magic Orchestra - their self titled debut album and the follow up 'Solid State Survivor' are essential.

    Ilan will be selling items used for NIN-touring (and other stuff!) in a Reverb shop starting on the 17th.

    Super old spotting, I know, but I've stumbled on a Breaking Bad episode where Flyentology with TR's verse is playing.

    Minor spotting but kind of cute in second to last paragraph:

    https://variety.com/2019/music/news/...dy-1203104828/

    On a side note: I would be totally down for a movie about Styx' Dennis DeYoung/Tommy Shaw wars. I was a Styx fan way before I was a NIN fan.

    recently finished grady hendrix's third novel, We Sold Our Souls, and there are several mentions of Trent (as well as a couple of MM). very minor spotting but it's a great book (as are the other two!) and i always get excited about things like that.

    On Netflix's Sex Education, NIN got a funny mention in episode 5: When one of the main characters asked what she should wear to meet her new boyfriend's parents for the first time, her friend warned her not to wear a Nine Inch Nails t-shirt.

    What a contrast - this article describes the backdrop thus 'PAR Cans cast ghostly shadows against a stark fabric backdrop'. I'll never forget Trent's description of that backdrop, after ditching it's predecessor on day one of the 2018 dates. 'Piss stained sheet'.

    Thanks for posting this! Paul Guthrie - I knew nothing about him until I read this article but I was absolutely floored by his work. He is a true master. One of the things I will always remember from the show were the lights and how they painted a complex picture of feeling around the band. Iím a visual artist but my grasp of color has nothing on him. Truly moving. Trent and Atticus chose well.

    I'm 84% sure that this Linkin Park demo samples MBM remix of The Perfect Drug.
    OR maybe it's just the same sample reused in both tracks, but Shinoda did recently tell that his earliest music experiences were just making remixes and mashups of his favorite bands (NIN specifically named).

    Awesome. Looks like an Aphex Twin sticker on the dresser as well.

    Plus Puscifer on the right by her knee and what looks to be the Nirvana smily face above the box on the left. Possibly Blue Oyster Cult by her knee, too?

    Looking forward to picking up the comic - artwork and colouring look very nice.

    Ah! You must be right! I couldn't think of any other band with the initials BOC and I'd never heard of Boards of Canada before.

    Just to clarify, the ARP in THTF is an Arp Odyssey, not a 2600.
