Trent Reznor Chats With Triple J
Nine Inch Nails mainman Trent Reznor was interviewed on Australian radio station Triple J on Friday (May 27). A two-part download has been made available on the station's web site, where Reznor talked about walking in the woods, hot chicks at concerts and being a classically trained pianist. Download and listen at ABC.net.au (part1 / part2).
According to Hits Daily Double, NINE INCH NAILS mainman Trent Reznor on Friday (May 27) won a resounding victory over former manager and Nothing partner John Malm in a New York Federal court. The jury awarded Reznor on every single claim in his suit, including fraud and breach of fiduciary duty, adding up to $3 million, but interest calculations could potentially double the amount, leaving Malm looking at the possibility of bankruptcy. Reznor also regains 100 percent control of his trademarks.
In May of 2004, Reznor filed suit against Malm, and his business manager/accountant Richard Szekelyi, for several million dollars he said they owed him. Malm had countered that Reznor owed him more than $2 million in unpaid commissions.
Reznor testified earlier in the month that he had as little as $400,000 in cash in 2003 after hundreds of thousands a dollars annually were lost on unnecessary expenses.
Reznor also contended that Malm duped him into signing a contract that allowed the former manager to collect 20 percent of the singer's gross earnings rather than net earnings.
Malm's lawyer, Alan Hirth, elicited through his questioning of Reznor that the singer was actively involved in many of the band's business dealings but sometimes chose not to read contracts and financial information before signing documents.

MTV has issued a statement in response to NINE INCH NAILS' decision to drop out of the "2005 MTV Movie Awards" following a dispute over NIN's plan to incorporate an image of George W. Bush into their performance of the song "The Hand That Feeds".
NIN's decision to pull out of the show was announced Thursday (May 26) via a statement posted by NAILS frontman Trent Reznor on NIN.com.
"NINE INCH NAILS will not be performing at the 'MTV Movie Awards' as previously announced. We were set to perform 'The Hand That Feeds' with an unmolested, straightforward image of George W. Bush as the backdrop," Reznor wrote. "Apparently, the image of our president is as offensive to MTV as it is to me. See you on tour this fall when we return to play in America."
In a brief statement, MTV expressed disappointment in NINE INCH NAILS' decision to drop out of the broadcast.
"While we respect NINE INCH NAILS' point of view, we were uncomfortable with their performance being built around a partisan political statement," the statement reads, according to MTV.com. "When we discussed our discomfort with the band, their choice was to unfortunately pull out of the Movie Awards."
MTV announced that the FOO FIGHTERS would be taking NIN's spot on the show.

The Associated Press is reporting that NINE INCH NAILS mainman Trent Reznor told a jury on Tuesday (May 17) that firing his longtime manager after the finances of his band deteriorated was "like a divorce."
Testifying on his 40th birthday in a civil case he brought against John Malm, the singer said he was left with little choice when he realized that the finances he had ignored for 15 years were in disarray.
"The last place I wanted to end up was sitting here right now," Reznor said from the witness stand in U.S. District Court in Manhattan. "This is like a divorce."
Under questioning by Malm's lawyer, Alan Hirth, Reznor admitted that he wrote a letter in the 1990s in which he said Malm would be his manager "until he chooses not to do so."
Reznor testified Monday that he had as little as $400,000 in cash in 2003 after hundreds of thousands a dollars annually were lost on unnecessary expenses.
Reznor also contends that Malm duped him into signing a contract that allowed the former manager to collect 20 percent of the singer's gross earnings rather than net earnings. He's seeking unspecified damages.
Hirth elicited through his questioning of Reznor that the singer was actively involved in many of the band's business dealings but sometimes chose not to read contracts and financial information before signing documents.
NINE INCH NAILS' latest single, "The Hand That Feeds", is No. 2 on Billboard's Top 20 list of modern rock tracks.
Nine Inch Nails recently shot a video for their second single "Only" with director David Fincher ("Seven", "Fight Club").
According to a spokesperson for Fincher, the new video almost entirely comprises computer-graphics-enhanced shots, and the director developed a brand new CG concept for the clip. Points of reference can be found in the CG shots from "Fight Club," including a scene that looks inside the head of Edward Norton's character. As with most of Fincher's work, the video for "Only" relies heavily on post-production, and as a result, the clip is not expected to be completed until June.
NINE INCH NAILS' entire album ''With Teeth'' has been posted online, in it's entirity, as one track for streaming here. It is the band's first album since 1999's "The Fragile". ''With Teeth'' hits stores on May 3rd.
Billboard.com is reporting that NINE INCH NAILS mastermind Trent Reznor has posted the group's new single, "The Hand That Feeds", on its official web site as a file that can be manipulated with the Apple hard-disk recording program Garageband. Fans are encouraged to build their own songs out of the NIN track's constituent parts, or just mess around to their heart's content.
"For quite some time I've been interested in the idea of allowing you the ability to tinker around with my tracks ? to create remixes, experiment, embellish or destroy what's there," Reznor writes in a file that accompanies the download, adding that technology now exists to make this possible.
"Change the tempo. Add new loops. Chop up the vocals. Turn me into a woman. Replay the guitar. Anything you'd like," he says. "I gave this to my crew and band to test out and all work effectively stopped for a while ? it's fun to mess around with," he adds. "I've now heard a country version of the track as well as an abstract Latin interpretation."
"The Hands That Feeds" is the first single from NIN's highly anticipated new album, "With Teeth", due May 3 via Interscope.
The Dresden Dolls have been signed to Roadrunner Records. The two-piece act of out Boston that pretty much defies any sort of explanation words can give. The Dresden Dolls will be the sole opening act on Nine Inch Nails' upcoming headline run, which starts later this month.

Former THE ICARUS LINE guitarist Aaron North spoke to Kerrang! magazine about his decision to leave the group and join NINE INCH NAILS.
"It felt like that band has run its course and it was time for me to do something else," he said. "Three weeks after quitting the band, I was asked to play with NINE INCH NAILS." North is currently in rehearsals with the band for their sold-out shows at London's Astoria on March 30 and 31. "They're going superb," said North. "The idea is to have a ton of material at our disposal, so each set can be radically different. Some of the die-hard NINE INCH NAILS fans may be surprised at some of the tunes attempted or reworked."
Although the 2005 band lineup of NINE INCH NAILS includes several new faces, drummer Jerome Dillon has kept his role as touring drummer since 1999. Dillon told Launch Radio Networks he never let founder Trent Reznor constantly changing the NIN roster faze him.
"I knew about the revolving door of membership of the band, but going into it, you know, I had a pretty clear idea of what it was that he was about, and knew that the direction of the band artistically and otherwise was, you know, 180 percent Trent Reznor," he said.
