    It sounds like Trent wasn't as committed to the idea of reinventing things as Adrian was. Maybe it was one of those ideas that seemed good on paper, but once they started working on it, it started to fall apart. That's really a shame that he had to go through that and get kicked out of King Crimson as well.

    Very interesting to hear that side of things. I'd be interested to hear what Eric Avery thinks about it, since it seems he was in the same boat. The only thing I've seen was a quote from the news reports of his leaving, basically saying he just didn't want to be on the road for another year and wanted to focus on his own music.

    Maybe Trent's version of reinventing things and Adrian's were a bit too different. I'm surprised to hear that, at least from Adrian's telling, Trent kinda blamed the rest of the band for the whole thing. That part seems off to me, and maybe that's just his mind remembering it differently ten years later. It's weird to think that Trent would prioritize the opinions of the rest of the band over his own, so I have to think that Trent wasn't happy with the way things were going either.

    @piggy someone made an edit of the Fortnite version, removing censorship and stopping the abrupt ending.

    This is a much larger history than I can go into without dragging the thread off topic, but the narrative that Ade got "kicked out" of KC isn't the whole picture. I'm not surprised he's changing his story now w/r/t NIN.

    +1... Not my circus, not my monkeys, but I would maybe let sleeping dogs lie on this one if I were him.

    I'm pretty sure there's a previously unseen Bleedthrough era interpretation of the NIN logo in Rob's latest Instagram post. Plus he's got a nice blurb about Bleedthrough vs With Teeth - or rather, how they're just different stages of the same creative project.

    I want to exist in the timeline where it was called Bleedthrough because man, nin.com was so fucking cool-looking during those few months.

    Recently uploaded clip of the 1993 New Year's edition of 120 Minutes, with Mike Edwards (Jesus Jones) talking about NIN, and how Trent was in the recording process of The Downward Spiral. 15:50

    I think in the past he just said that while he was promised a total reimagining of the material, in the rehearsals he was pushed to do things almost exactly the way they were played before, and he got annoyed with that and left. The version in this video paints it in a bit different light

    This always fascinated me. I rememebr in 2013 Trent saying that Nine Inch Nails was "reinventing itself from scratch", so I think there was an idea of how to reinterpret the material but it just didn't click or come together. I know a lot of guitar guys like this in my personal life, they're good players ... but they seem to be in their own world when it comes to 'jamming' and it's hard to get structure out of them. Adrian is incredible, but comments like "L.A. players" just come across obnoxious.

    In the end, I think whatever they may have been planning would have been perfect for a club run of shows where it's a new vibe ... but in 2013, they were playing major festivals and about to embark on a stadium tour, so potentially trying things a bit new just didn't feel right at the time.

    Trent even made the comment on Discord two years ago that the latest version of the band was done, so who knows what could be next.

    There was a fair bit of reinvention since 2013. All the EP material is obviously new, but also, the perfect drug, sanctified rework, terrible lie with more prominent bass bit; iirc doing the LP version of TDTWWA was from after that

    I mean there was considerable reinvention within 2013 itself...the Belew rehearsals were before the summer festival run of that tour, with Tension (a wild departure from previous tour cycles) starting a few weeks after the fest run concluded. Something seems off about this new retelling of events but at this point I couldn't care less.

    Could that be a copyright infringement?

    This pic is few years old and I always wondered if it's even real because there are literally no other pics of this place. Surely more than 1 nin fan walked that street somewhere in Greece or Cyprus?

    edit: ok you know what? apparently it's real

    Trademark infringement. If that were in the U.S., that'd be an easy cease and desist.

    nin news is so scarce, the couple year old nails meme is all we have to discuss in nin spotting.

    @botley , is it me or does this upcoming Gary Numan 7” look like it borrowed its design from the original HLAH single?

    Passing resemblance, but that cover is itself an adaptation of the poster for his 998th/999th/1000th gigs, which to my eyes (except for it not being a square, and the red text at bottom) is even closer to the NIN design: https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid...65010738327339

    I'd somehow never seen it until now. I was struck by how good the proportions look relative to the actual logo.

    Trademark protections are only good for the jurisdiction in which they're registered. But, it turns out, Trent actually has a European Union Trademark registration for the NIN logo:
    https://euipo.europa.eu/eSearch/#det...arks/007523723

    Greece is beholden to that, so there would be a legal basis if he wanted to pursue that.

    Generally speaking, big-ish organizations really don't care if some tiny company is using their stuff. Yes, some are more litigious than others, especially the huge companies, but there's a good chance the NIN camp saw it, had a chuckle, and moved on. If they opened a chain, went viral, etc., then it would be a different story.

    It was the crossword that did it for me. Might be time for that medically induced coma I keep reading so much about.

    I'm always on the hunt for rare Woodstock footage, so it's so cool to see that uploaded.

    Pretty funny, I remember TR talking about that morning in an interview but it's hilarious to see them goofing around with The Croz. RIP you magnificent bastard.
