Good morning Radicals! Hope you’re warm and dry on this rainy Wednesday.
Nine Inch Nails main man Trent Reznor has filed for a restraining order against his neighbor, according to TMZ. Reznor claims that the man has been behaving increasingly irrationally and threateningly towards him and his family for the past six months, yelling at a friend leaving Reznor’s house that Satan is going to get him and ranting on the sidewalk about how “the Lord” will get “rich people.”
Reznor also claims that on Christmas Eve, he was outside playing with his kids when he spotted a “disheveled” neighbor walking up and down the sidewalk ranting, “Rich people can do anything they want, but the Lord will get them in the end.” A judge has agreed to keep the neighbor at least 10 yards from the Nine Inch Nails leader, his family, and employees working at his house. A court hearing regarding the issue will take place next month.
Nine Inch Nails has been playing sporadic shows and has released two EPs in the last 13 months.
Three original Smashing Pumpkins members were photographed together in the studio on Tuesday. Founder and frontman William Corgan and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin were joined at a Los Angeles recording studio by original guitarist James Iha, prompting Corgan to write on Instagram, “@smashingpumpkins: Not sure what cross-eyed spy took this photo, but we had a visitor to the studio the other day. So many memories when you put the three of us together. @jamesihaofficial @chamberdrums #WPC.”
Corgan also wrote, “Life is wonderful. Keep moving. I could complain (because there are always irritants to the rainbow in my mind) but ’tis more graceful to stay inspired. To see all as being in it’s perfect place.. #beherenow.”
Iha joined Corgan, Chamberlin and the rest of the current Pumpkins lineup for three performances in the spring of 2016. Since then, Corgan has also mended ties with long-estranged bassist D’Arcy Wretzky and spoken openly about the possibility of a reunion tour.
Corgan discussed the chances of the original quartet playing live together again last year, saying, “(A reunion tour) has been knocked about . . . But I’ll say this and I mean it: If we never play a note together again, that’s okay. I’m way, way more interested in the fact that we have peace with each other.”
Corgan and Chamberlin have been in the studio recently working on a song called “Route 666,” but it’s unclear if that is intended as a Pumpkins track or something else. Corgan released a solo album last year called Ogilala and claims to have more new music on the way in 2018, while the rumors of a full-blown Pumpkins reunion continue to percolate.
Thirty Seconds To Mars has announced that it will host its fourth annual Camp Mars music festival from August 11th through August 13th in Malibu, California. Activities at the summer camp-themed event will include hiking, yoga, art installations, meditation, games and music, with fans getting the chance to interact with the members of the band as well.
Frontman Jared Leto told us a while back that he considers his group’s fans the most devoted in rock: “It’s incredible to have a group of people that are so dedicated and passionate to what we have to offer. Obviously we’re not the biggest band out there, but we have the most incredible fans — it’s like a big dysfunctional family, I’ve said a bunch of times before. There’s always just the most inspired efforts by the people that are here to be a part of something very special.”
Camp Mars ticket packages will be available to purchase starting on January 22nd via the festival’s website, which also features a complete list of activities.
In 2016, the band released a film directed by Leto that documented the first Camp Mars festival in 2015.
Finally, we’d like to wish a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Detroit’s own KID ROCK! Make it a great one!
Lou Brutus' legendary (dare we call it infamous?) career has seen him soil the airwaves of New York, Chicago, Boston, Washington, DC, and Providence, Rhode Island, where Mayor Buddy Cianci once ordered the local police to "shoot the son of a b*tch on sight!"
Lou, who witnessed over 1000 concerts during his life, has travelled the world to bring his listeners first-hand reports from music's greatest moments with broadcasts from North America, Europe, Asia, and the frozen Arctic tundra of Canada where he moshed with Inuit eskimos during a live performance by Metallica. Mr Brutus, the winner of dozens of broadcast awards which he uses to decorate the nest of his pet wolverines, has been the host of hardDrive since it signed on the air in early 1996.
He has no shame and no sense of decency.
