new album info
from mtv news: Trent Reznor Finds New Direction, With Help Of Bowie

September 11 [12:00 EDT] -- Trent Reznor is now at work on the next Nine Inch Nails album with producer Rick Rubin. Reznor says in an interview in the new issue of "CMJ New Music Monthly" that it's bound to sound a lot different than his previous work.

He also says that NIN had become "a parody of itself" after its last tour, so he began taking stock of himself and his music. Reznor says that he realized he was bored with industrial music, and began getting into drum n' bass, jungle, hip-hop and especially, Erykah Badu.

He also turned to U2 frontman Bono at one point for advice on what musical direction to go in, and got songwriting tips from David Bowie, with whom NIN toured two years ago.

As we reported earlier this week, Bowie (who's current U.S. tour plays Los Angeles on Saturday) has told reporters that his next single will be a Reznor remix of "I'm Afraid Of Americans," but neither Reznor's camp nor Bowie's will confirm that.

kerrang interview
there is an interview in kerrang! magazine that was typed up and posted to alt.music.nin recently. the full article can be found here. some excerpts: The 'band' is now completed by keyboardist/programmer Charlie Clouser and programmer Keith Hillebrandt. Both glam-freak guitarist Robin Finck and drummer Chris Vrenna have been jettisoned. Reznor stresses that Vrenna "Will never be in the band ever again".

Trent Reznor claims to be "happily inspired" right now, despite recent events. An unknown musician, Mark Nicholas Onofrio, has filed a lawsuit against him, claiming that certain songs from 'The Downward Spiral'are "strikingly similar" to his own, which he alleges he sent Reznor in 1993. "If I could name the Number One thing on my list that pisses me off right now," says Reznor, "it would be that pile of fucking human cunt garbage. I've never met him or heard his fucking tape. I don't even want to acknowledge his existence. You'll read about it when it gets thrown out of court." it also reports that trent recently lost his grandmother. many people who mailed in as well as i offer our condolences and sympathy.

sigismondi
time magazine (1 septermber 1997 issue) has a bit on music video directors and the such, and has a bit with floria sigismondi: "says sigismondi: 'i don't watch [mtv]. i'm really not up on what's trendy. i'm in my own little world.'"

"sigismondi, 31, who was born in italy and lives in canada, says she never aims to shock, though she usually strikes a nerve. "i try and look for beauty in darkness, to make harmony in the images." in her video for shock-rocker manson's tourniquet, we are treated to the sight of manson shaving his own armpit; in sigismondi's clip for the beautiful people, we see writhing worms, rows of stomping fascistic boots and manson's mouth pushed open by some cruel dental device. the songs themselves are dumb and brutal, but the videos have a ghastly playfulness that evokes david lynch and federico fellini."

"sigismondi says movie scripts have been 'flooding in,' but that she hasn't chosen a project."

home life
from "home life" - "the premier christian family magazine" september 1997 (for your amusement): _Prayer Focus Artist_ [b/w photo of tpd-era reznor with arms folded over chest]

When he's not busy as the lead singer of the multi-million selling alternative act Nine Inch Nails, 31-year-old Trent Reznor plays the role of the producer for bands such as the controversial Marilyn Manson. With millions of fans snapping up his records around the world, you'd think Reznor would be a happy contented man. He's not. In an interview earlier this year, Reznor described the hole he feels in his soul:

"Like I always though, 'Man if I could ever be a rock star ...' Some stupid [profanity deleted] naive dream, and then you get it and ... I've been at my lowest point, and I'm not just saying this; it didn't work, man. I mean, my job is ... I wake up and make music and work with people I respect, and David Bowie will take my call, so why ... do I want to kill myself, you know?" He concludes, "I'm on a [profanity deleted] path to self destruction." (1)

This revealing interview brings to mind the words of Christ in Luke 9:25, "What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forgeit his very self?" This month, pray that the restlessness Trent Reznor is experiencing will drive him to the peace that's found only through Jesus.

flyin' traps
from alternative press online: Years ago, the only time fans went to the rest room at a rock concert was during the drum solo. Now Hollywood Records has announced its plans to release Flyin' Traps, a collection of songs highlighting 17 modern-rock drummers. "I'm a big fan of the drum records that Sandy Nelson and Hal Blaine made during the '50s and '60s," says Redd Kross drummer Brian Reitzell, who developed the project. "[This record] is actually about songs, but with a spotlight on the drums." Flyin' Traps features diverse performances from folks such as CHRIS VRENNA (Nine Inch Nails), Stephen Perkins (Jane's Addiction), Tim Alexander (Primus, Laundry) and Dale Crover (Melvins), as well as former Soundgarden skinsman Matt Cameron teaming up with Taz Bentley (Tenderloin, the Rev. Horton Heat) on "Theme From Wrong Holy-O." In addition, Mudhoney's drink 'n' drum expert Dan Peters delivers a way-cool version of the Kinks' "Do You Remember Walter?" The album is set for release Sept. 23.
