halo eleven
promos have been circulated to radio stations and the like. on kroq after hours they played one mix that sounded as thus: No one announced which remix it was, but the thing was stripped down to the bare bones. Most of the lyrics were jettisoned, and the only line which popped up regularly was "YOU ARE THE PERFECT-" but the "DRUG" was cut off. Also in the track were "YOU MAKE ME HARD-AND I WANT YOU"... Short segments of the drum solo also survived, but until the first time some lyrics were played, the song was almost unrecognizable... meanwhile someone has actually gotten the retail version: [cover]

quake 2
unfortunately, the soundtrack // sound effects for the upcoming id game quake 2 will not include any work by trent reznor // nine inch nails. unfortunate, yes, but there are other priorities to be considered.

mardi gras
regarding the last mardi gras -- tribe magazine, new orleans city magazine, is reporting that trent rode on a float disguised in a turbin sort of hat similar to the one `i dream of jeannie' wore on the show. after throwing off $14,000 worth of beads, trent then left the float, took pictures with fans and then went to a party held by better than ezra. in the magazine, trent is posing for a picture. and he is smiling.

drummer compilation
some news on a drummer compilation disc, possibly featuring chris vrenna, was posted to atn on sunday: Addicted To Noise Senior Writer Gil Kaufman reports: In a new spin on the old James Brown plea to "give the drummer some," an album due out this summer aims to give a gang of alternative rock drummers their due.

Called Flyin' Traps, the instrumental percussion record on Hollywood Records features ex-Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron on a self-penned tune called "Theme From Holy-O," the Flaming Lips' Steven Drozd playing his composition "Headphones Theme From Seemingly Infinity," Porno For Pyros' Stephen Perkins doing his tune "Monkey in Brazil," Mudhoney's Dan Peters covering Ray Davies' (Kinks) "Do You Remember Walter?," and the Melvins' Dale Crover with the appropriately sick, "Vomit and Orange Juice."

Other artists on the collection, produced by Redd Kross' Brian Reitzell, include: Reitzell "Snake and Mongoose," former drummer J. Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.) "Car!," Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees/Tuatara) "Barnburner," Joey Waronker (Beck) "Chorkle is Dead," Josh Freese (Slider/Paul Westerberg) "The Gay 90's," Tim "Herb" Alexander (ex-Primus/Laundry) "Choked," Mac McNeilly (ex-Jesus Lizard) "Lime," Michael Musburger (Fastbacks) "Noodles," Alexis Fleisig (Girls Against Boys) "Don't Ruin Me Gorgeous" and Chris Vrenna (ex-NIN) "The Steel Box."

In the liner notes to the collection, Modern Drummer magazine Assistant Editor Adam Budofsky, says of the contributions, "I'd wager that even listeners who recognize the names of the drummers on Flyin' Traps will be pretty surprised by the diverse and mesmerizing sounds they discover here. The full spectrum not only of drumming, but of musical expression is represented, from Barrett Martin's squelchy urban jungle, to Stephen Drozd's cosmic sonic space voyage, to Joey Waronker's sinister avant-garde groove experiment--to Dan Peters' neat re-interpretation of Ray Davies jewel."

on saturday the comic strip "ghost story club" had a mentioning of nin. part of a story about some girl who gets sent back to 1692. apparently, she's showing off some of her technology from the future to prove she's been time warped. in the last frame, she yanks out a cd player, expecting some old guy to understand what it is. she says, "and here's a portable cd player. it plays music. listen!" then he yells, "voices of demons!" she replies, "no, nine inch nails."

u2 show
wall of sound reports about trent's attire at the opening u2 show: As for Trent Reznor, we can't be sure he was staying at the MGM Grand, but he was certainly hard to miss in the lobby, dressed in black shorts and black T-shirt, with a sticker on his shirt reading: "Hello, My Name Is Satan." supposedely there is a picture of this in the 5/9 issue of entertainment weekly (p. 38?).

chris vrenna may be having some naming problems, from this vague report from atn: Well, a few artists have come across some trouble with their names lately. Nine Inch Nails alum Chris "No, I haven't joined Guns N' Roses" Vrenna's new project, Tweaker, may have to rethink that moniker ...
