alt press
the august issue of alternative press has some interesting info: Trent's Turbo Lover Judas Priest Frontman signed to Nothing

After much speculation and rumor, it has been confirmed that former Judas Priest/Fight singer Rob Halford has signed to Trent Reznor's Nothing label. Halford's new vehicle, Two, features drummer Sid Riggs and guitarist John Lawry. The current sessions are being produced by Bob Marlette, although Dave "Rave" Ogilvie is slated to do some mixing. Reznor is executive producing the album.

Ogre's Ritalin Summer

Former Skinny Puppy frontman Ogre has been keeping busy. Besides creating electronic soundscapes for his own enjoyment at home, he's teaming up with Martin Atkins for a project dubbed Ritalin. "It's sort of like a postcard," says the singer. "I told Martin we should try to sound as little like ourselves as possible, just rhythm and voice." Ogre mentioned that the concept would be similar to the Pigface track "Insemination" from the album "Fook."

WELT, Ogre's long-running project with Mark Walk (Ruby), had an album completed for American Recordings that was shelved after the label's absorption into Warner Bros. "It's been a fuckin' nightmare," Ogre says of his travails in the music business. "I came to the point where I wondered if [music] was worth doing. You question everything. There are certain elements of my persona then which I don't want to project now, because they're being exploited by people like Marilyn Manson. So if I come out and do something similar to the past, is everybody going to think I'm a Manson clone? I'm just being patient and letting things run their course." Now released from the American contract, Ogre and Walk will be recording this summer, as well as fielding offers from record labels. Fans will also be able to hear Ogre on upcoming records by KMFDM and Pigface.

Hey Man, Nice Lot! Filter in the Studio

Filter have written nearly 20 songs for their follow-up to 1995's "Short Bus." Richard Patrick and Brian Liesegang are working in their Chicago-based home studio, although it has been rumored that the duo are seeking the services of a prominent producer to oversee the end result. Liesegang told AP that some of the working titles include "Cabdriver," "Blood," and "Breakfast of Champions," but, like everything else in life, they are subject to change.

pulse review
review of lh sndtrk from pulse magazine (tower records): "The record, however, reverses the proportions, weaving in seven of Badalementi's offerings essentially as inconspicuous filler that gets lost in a cross-generational who's-who of feel-bad rock acts like NINE INCH NAILS, TRENT REZNOR, Lou Reed, the Smashing Pumpkins, MARILYN MANSON and David Bowie......."

from mtv news: New Download, Remixed Puppy Pending

June 26 [10:00 EDT] -- Nettwerk Records confirms there's an album of Skinny Puppy remixes in the works. The record won't appear until next spring the earliest, though. "There's a lot of work to be done," says Nettwerk's Ric Arboit.

Arboit says it's premature to say who'll will be contributing ("you'll know when I know," says Arboit) and offers up a specific 'no comment' on reports that the ubiquitous Trent Reznor will be in the mix. Reznor's rumored involvement is a natural progression given that Puppy's longtime production guru Dave 'The Rave' Ogilvie, considered to be the trio's fourth member, will likely to be the man of the hour on the remixes and that Ogilvie is firmly entrenched in the Reznor camp.

Ogilvie has production credits ranging from David Bowie to Ministry to Marilyn Manson, and most recently he engineered Nine Inch Nails' "The Perfect Drug" for Reznor. He's currently recording Rob Halford's band, now called Two, signed to Reznor's Nothing Records and is xpected to work on the new NIN effort.

The trailblazing industrial Skinny Puppy was formed in Vancouver, Canada in 1983 and the final line-up of Nivek Ogre, Cevin Key and Dwayne Goettel gelled in 1986. The band disintegrated during the recording of their final album, The Process, in 1995. Ogre went on to W.E.L.T. and other projects while Key and Goettel formed Download. Goettel died a short time later of a drug overdose.

Arboit adds that there will be a new Download record this year. He says to expect "Download III" to be released in the fall. The album includes Key, Phillith (Phil Western), Anthony Valcic and Joe Vizvary.

plug
from an old alt.rave article: PLUG INTO THE STATES

Drum n' bass act Plug has signed to US label Nothing Records, the imprint run by Nine Inch Nails mainman Trent Reznor. The deal will see Plug's debut album 'Drum & Bass For Papa' released via Interscope, which has a reputation for breaking alternative acts in the States. Plug have also remixed Nine Inch Nails' new single 'Perfect Drug'. "I'm really excited about it," said Plug's Luke Vibert - who also records for Mo'Wax as Wagon Christ. "It's good because we were just about to sign to another label and then this deal came along. I can't imagine we'll be one of the British dance acts to break America. But it would be very nice indeed if we were."

from aol's mtv online: MARILYN MANSON FANS WIN LEGAL BATTLE IN UTAH

One of the first flaps in the ongoing Marilyn Manson tour controversy has come to an end, with Manson fans coming out on top.

A group of Manson devotees in Salt Lake City, Utah won a $9,300 settlement in their lawsuit against the Utah State Fairpark. The fans claimed that their First Amendment rights were violated after the venue canceled a Manson concert January 11.

Back in January, a federal judge told the Fairpark that its behavior constituted prior restraint and that it couldn't cancel a concert just because it didn't like its content. However, the judge also refused to order the venue to book the concert and the show's promoters, concerned about future relations with the Fairpark, opted to move the Manson concert to Wolf Mountain in Park City some 30 miles away.

After the change of venue, the plaintiffs re-filed their suit, seeking monetary damages. The state Attorney General's office then stepped in and told the Fairpark it had to adopt a new rule saying it wouldn't restrict performances based on content. The Attorney General went on to note that if the Fairpark was fearful of an obscene performance, it could get a court order prohibiting the concert.

The Fairpark's chief executive officer says its beef was never with Manson, but with the promoter, which started selling tickets to the show before a contract was signed. also, MANSON TALKS ABOUT BEING YOUR SCAPEGOAT

As drama and controversy continue to follow Marilyn Manson on tour, the shock rock icon has chosen the appropriately titled "Man That You Fear" as his latest video.

Manson himself notes that the song is a fitting anthem for the Satan's spawn hooha that's managed to follow him over the last six months.

At his first Ozzfest gig at New Jersey's Meadowlands (yet another Manson stop that generated public outcry and legal maneuvering), Manson explained to MTV News that while the storyline of the new clip seems pulled from his own experience, it is actually based on the Shirley Jackson short story "The Lottery."

"Its setting is in a settlement," Manson told MTV News. "It separates themselves from the rest of society because they don't have their own rules. It takes place on the last day of my life."

"I'm sort of chosen and picked as a bit of a sacrifice for the rest of mankind, or in this case the small town that I've chosen to live in and it's kinda like how I've been offered up as a scapegoat in America."

The scapegoat scored at least one victory this week as 14 fans of America's moral scourge won a legal victory in Utah this week. As we reported yesterday, the Utah State Fairpark agreed to pay the Manson fans $9,300 to settle a lawsuit filed in January after the Fairpark canceled a Manson gig after tickets had already gone on sale (see "Marilyn Manson Fans Win Legal Battle In Utah" from June 24).
