Years ago, I wrote a short book on Trent Reznor, Nine Inch Nails and the making of Pretty Hate Machine and The Downward Spiral. The book mentions all of Trent’s pre-NIN bands including Exotic Birds, Option 30 and The Innocent. There even might have been a passing reference the forgettable Slam Bamboo, the last band he was in before he created NIN.
So what were they like? Glad you asked. Some video from 1987 has surfaced and it’s…well, very 80s. That’s him in black on keyboards. The full story at UPROXX.
