Trent Razor from NIN thoughts for new artists

Very interesting post from Trent Razor on advice for new artists and there music


“Have a realistic idea of what you can expect to make from these and budget your recording appropriately.The point is this: music IS free whether you want to believe that or not. Every piece of music you can think of is available free right now a click away. This is a fact – it sucks as the musician BUT THAT’S THE WAY IT IS (for now). So… have the public get what they want FROM YOU instead of a torrent site and garner good will in the process .”

Slip Away

Heartache like a smokers cough
And I’m trying to shake it off
The lines are closing in on me
They go as far as I can see
Please don’t go
Don’t slip away
I was conscious of my legs
Like I’d been standing around for days
Now there’s nothing in this world
That could make my heart feel full
Please don’t go
Don’t slip away

Wild Flowers

Wild flowers who’d have thought
White flowers evocative
Loves power holds me up to you
High towers fuck you up
Wild flowers provocative
Bad choice no character you see
Berliner Philharmonicar
Fake flowers inferior
Good work from the interpreter
Wild flowers who’d have thought
White flowers evocative
Loves power holds me up to you

Summer Girl in November

I went down to the water
cause I knew I’d feel a lot better
The swans were barking at dogs
And me, I went off and got lost
Oh a lullaby is useless in the morning
Like your best friend telling you he’s horny
And when the worst thing about a writer is his stories
You can always come home
I met my summer girl in November
The rain came down to remind me to remember
I swear she thought I was someone else
I really did my best I wasn’t myself.
Oh a lullaby is useless in the morning
Like your best friend telling you he’s horny
And when the worst thing about a writer is his stories
You can always come home
