Take it from Trent Reznor: Nine Inch Nails' summer tour with Jane's Addiction "just got that much cooler." Bear in mind that this is a tour whose acronym spells NIN/JA, so it was pretty cool to begin with. Anyway, the reason Trent's so extra revved up right now is that they've just added Street Sweeper, the new project from Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello and The Coup's Boots Riley, as an opening act. Apparently, this little radical superduo has been kicking around for a while already, but this is the first I've heard of it, and I've gotta agree with Trent. Morello and Riley are a match made in protest-music heaven.
