Album Of The Week: Celebrating 25 Years Of Nine Inch Nails' The Downward Spiral


Nine Inch Nails

This week we are looking at the 25th anniversary of Nine Inch Nails' legendary second album. The Downward Spiral was noted by critics for its strong departure from their debut when it was released on Nothing Records and Interscope Records, and they've never released another album quite like it.

After their synth-pop based 1989 debut Pretty Hate Machine, The Downward Spiral was a surprising change in sound. This was a scuzzier, gritty record with more elements of industrial rock and metal. There was almost something less polished about it, but it did its job in propelling Nine Inch Nails to international stardom.

Trent Reznor Slams Taylor Swift's Trump Silence


Taylor Swift Trent Reznor Nine Inch Nails

Say what you like about Trent Reznor, but he's certainly not afraid to tell it like it is. He opened up in an interview recently about the voice of superstars in the current climate, and his disdain for artists like Taylor Swift who refuse to speak out on important political matters.

The Nine Inch Nails frontman thinks that influential musicians sharing their opinions of social and political issues is of vital importance for young people and others who may not be able to voice their feelings but need somebody to stand-up on their behalf. He also thinks that stars like Taylor Swift, who avoid entering into political discussions, care more about their 'brand' than what's going on in the world.

It's an interesting facet of the human condition that we can find beauty and, in some cases, solace in misery and heartbreak. Indeed, musicians have been doing it for years and made a lot of money doing so, simply because we love to wallow in sadness as people. We've put together a dramatic playlist that will no doubt cause you to shed a few tears.

Why David Lynch Rejected Nine Inch Nails' First 'Twin Peaks' Song Offering

It went without saying that Nine Inch Nails would make a live appearance at the Roadhouse on the new 'Twin Peaks' series, but it seems that creator David Lynch had a very specific idea on what kind of sound he wanted from them for the eighth episode.

Band members Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross recently opened up about their collaboration with David Lynch on 'Twin Peaks: The Return' - a project that they really didn't need much persuading to join. As it turns out, the song that they sung at the Roadhouse entitled 'She's Gone Away' was written especially for the show, and ended up also being included on the 'Not the Actual Events' EP.

The Music Of 'Twin Peaks The Return'

So that's it for the reunion series of 'Twin Peaks', and the 18 episodes definitely seem to have gone by so quickly. Perhaps some of the most enjoyable moments in the whole series were the great many musical guests that appeared at the Road House (and elsewhere).

David Lynch has always taken music seriously in his filmmaking, so we wouldn't have expected anything other than an electrifying auditory experience and that's exactly what we got with these artists during 'Twin Peaks: The Return'. Needless to say, the cool jazz-infused flavour from the original series is somewhat lacking - but then you can't have everything...

Trent Reznor Looks 'Fondly' Back On Late Nine Inch Nails Keyboardist James Woolley


Nine Inch Nails Trent Reznor

The frontman of Nine Inch Nails - Trent Reznor - has paid tribute to his friend and former band member James Woolley, who was announced to have passed away earlier this week. The singer and Oscar winning film composer told how he has fond memories of working with the keyboardist, despite his brief tenure.

Woolley worked with Reznor in Nine Inch Nails from 1991 to 1994, but despite the brevity of his involvement, he was there for some pretty significant moments in the band's career. He worked on their critically acclaimed second album 'The Downward Spiral' - which included the songs 'Hurt', 'March Of The Pigs' and 'Closer' - and even performed with the band for their legendary Woodstock 1994 set.

'Terrible news regarding James. I hadn't crossed paths with him for some time, but always thought of him fondly', Reznor told Rolling Stone. 'He was a fun character to be around, a solid musician and a genuinely good guy. Those of us from that era of the band have been sharing 'James' stories ... lots of laughs and love and sadness. Wishing his family the very best.'

Woolley's former wife and mother of his three children (Brendan, Mary and Anne) Karen Van Buren originally broke the news of his death to the public via Facebook, though didn't specify a cause of death; she merely revealed that he had been struggling with neck and spine problems for some time.

'I met James Woolley in late 1991 at the Sunset Social Club in Los Angeles. I was with my friend Tatiana enjoying the live band, then stood in the long line for the ladies' room. James was sitting on a chair nearby. We started talking and it was love at first sight', she wrote in her moving tribute.
