Nine Inch Nails Mixing Up "The Fragile"
Remix album, DVD coming in fall from Nine Inch
In October Nine Inch Nails will release Things Falling Apart, a remix album
featuring reworkings of last year's The Fragile album. The album will also
contain unreleased material from the Fragile sessions, including a cover of Gary
Numan's "Metal." (In 1995, NIN released the remix album Further Down the Spiral,
based on 1994's The Downward Spiral).
Joining Trent Reznor and Co. to offer their own remixes will be Adrian
Sherwood (the Cure, Afrika Bambaataa) and Dave Ogilvie (Skinny Puppy, David
Bowie), among others. "The Wretched," "The Frail" and "Starfuckers, Inc." (in
three different versions) are among the Fragile tracks being reconstructed.
In November, Nothing Records will release a live DVD/VHS of NIN's recent
Fragility v2.0 North American tour. The film -- which was produced by Reznor
himself -- will include concert footage and some backstage moments from the
marathon tour, which covered over forty cities between April 12 and June 18. The
band is currently in Nothing Studios in New Orleans mixing and editing the

mini-Moby, you could win a Les Paul guitar signed by Trent himself.
