Pretty poor timing, as this is a great gift for any hardcore NIN fan, and released just in time to miss christmas.

I hope that this is a fundraiser for the next NIN album.

The throat is deep and the mouth is wide
Saw some things on the other side
Made me promise to never tell
You know me I can't help myself, no

I got something you have to see
They put something inside of me
The smile is red and its eyes are black
I don't think I'll be coming back

I don't believe and I
I had to see am I
I came back haunted
I said goodbye but I
I had to try and I
I came back haunted
I came back haunted

Everywhere now remembering me
I am not who I used to be
I'm afraid this has just begun
Got some answers for what I've done

I don't believe and I
I had to see am I
I came back haunted
I said goodbye but I
I had to try and I
I came back haunted
I came back haunted

They tried to tell me but I
I couldn't stop myself
I came back
I came back haunted

Just can't stop
Came back haunted

Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor tells fans not to buy 'Pretty Hate Machine' reissue

Singer slams re-release as 'record label bullshit' and urges fans to ignore it.
Nine Inch Nails mainman Trent Reznor has told fans not to waste their money buying the latest reissue of their debut album 'Pretty Hate Machine'.

The singer took to Twitter to urge people to "ignore" the new re-release, which he criticised for being a "record label bullshit move".

Nine Inch Nails originally released 'Pretty Hate Machine' in 1989 and Reznor worked with sound engineer Tom Baker on a remastered version of the LP which was released in November last year. That version also featured a cover of Queen’s 'Get Down, Make Love', which was on the B-side of their 1991 single 'Sin'.


NYtimes Live interview with Trent

Though I didn't get a chance to watch myself, i've seen a number of newsworthy highlights.

* Trent touched on the subject of The Fragile's deluxe release which may include multi-tracks for all you remix artists.
* The Fragile's re-release will be a 5.1 mix (blu-ray?).
* Trent and Atticus will be score the film "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" set to be released November(ish).
* Trent also hinted at releasing a "greatest hits" album, if it had meaning.
* HTDA apparently wont sound much like the EP
* Trent said he'd be happy to work with Marilyn Manson again, "We've had our differences, but Im an adult now, I wear suits".

As soon as the full interview becomes available, I'll be liable to forget all about it until prompted :/

10.22.10: Pretty Hate Machine Re-Issue

I’m happy to finally announce the re-issue of the first Nine Inch Nails record “Pretty Hate Machine,” releasing worldwide 11/22. UMe and Bicycle Music Group managed to locate the original mixes, so I went in the studio with Tom Baker and remastered it for a grealy improved sonic experience. In addition, Rob reinterpreted Gary Talpas’ original cover to make for a fresh new package.

It’s been an interesting trip watching the fate of this record float from one set of hands to another (a long and depressing story) but it’s finally wound up in friendly territory, allowing us to polish it up a bit and present it to you now. We had fun revisiting this old friend, hope you enjoy.
