29 Jun 2010, 20:20 by amodelofcontrolThose first thirty-seconds-to-a-minute of a song can be vitally important, particularly if it's the first thing I've heard of an artist. If they don't grab me, it might be that is the last time I bother with an artist. So let's celebrate the visceral hit you can get from some songs, with ten great intros, and a Spotify playlist to go with it.
The Razor's Edge
If this is a slightly metal-tastic list this week, that's probably no accident. After all, metal music allows for a rather more dramatic intro, usually, although I don't think we could call this all that dramatic. It is one of the greatest intro guitar riffs ever, however. Marvellously simple, in theory - just Angus Young's endlessly repeated riff, Chris Slade's hi-hat rhythm, and the chant of "thunder", it builds and builds and eventually explodes into one of the band's greatest songs post-Back in Black.

Remarkably one of two bands in todays forty that have two bassists, never a common setup in alternative rock, never mind any other genre. GVSB are one of my favourite bands and have been for many years, despite a now long period of inactivity other than occasional gigs. This single - their commercial breakthrough, really - was featured on the Clerks soundtrack, and it's deep-down-and-dirty grooves are a good representation of where GVSB were at the time. They flirted with electronics and major labels subsequently, but this track comes from the middle of a golden period where the band frankly didn't put a note wrong for three albums.
5 Nov 2009, 18:14 by AnnaDraconidaGranted, this is ancient history, but I'd still like to write a few words about the Nine Inch Nails live experience I had on the 25th of July before the year's over 'cause then it'd be definitely too late.
As all fans know, before the final world tour Trent Reznor has announced the end of NIN as we know it 'cause he's really happy and sober and has decided that vagina >>>>>>>>> fistfuck after all. He also stopped performing Closer at every single show 'cause he doesn't want to fuck everyone in the world like an animal anymore. Bummer.
Knowing that this is last chance to see Mr.T live (unless the future deflation of his fuckpuppet will leave him pissed enough to go screaming around the world once more), and I love his work a lot, I originally wanted to see 2 shows, but it's been a terribly long, exhausting summer, with lots of traveling, heat, shitty accomodations & shitty people surrounding me. That comes from me being a part of the Romanian national cycling team, but let's not go off topic here. …
14 Aug 2009, 02:50 by gskijjNine Inch Nails show in Summer Sonic 2009 was my fourth NIN show. I usually don't like to see the same band too many times, because I feel like "wearing them out". This time I assured myself that going to the show is necessary, because this is "Wave Goodbye" tour and this is also an opportunity to see them on some other continent.
The show felt the least live experience of their shows I have seen, because Alessandro Cortini left NIN live already in the end of 2008, but Trent has not added another keyboard player to that post. Therefore no-one was playing keyboards and pre-recorded audio was used instead of live playing. Yes, Trent played a little keyboards in some occasions. And so did Robin.
The show started like they started in Helsinki ice hall 2007: They came to dark stage and started right away from the first verse of Somewhat Damaged. During the gig Reznor gave his trademark moves throwing the guitar to the back of the stage right at the end of a song and pushing down keyboard…

Nine Inch Nails @ Syma csarnok, 2009.07.24
kezdjük mondjuk azzal hogy néztem itt lastfmen meg jutubon Alec Empire videókat, konkrétan nem nagyon fogott meg, szoval gondoltam nyugodtan ráérősre vehetem a figurát, semmi jelentősről nem fogok lemaradni. ennek megfelelően kb fél 9-re értem symához, gyorsan összehaveroztam egy párocskával (vagyis ők jöttek oda megkérdezni hogy hol kell bemenni, mondtam hogy ifjúság útja felől, de akkor már menjünk együtt, ne egyedül nézzenek hülyének ha esetleg mégse :D) aztán bementünk, én meg gyorsan elmentem körülnézni körülnézni hátha találok valami ismerőst. hát senki. oké, vissza újdonsült társaságomhoz, aztán előrementünk a tömegbe, és bal oldalon kb a hangfalaktól 15 méterre álltunk meg. …
21 Jul 2009, 15:51 by scorpiusdiamondTue 14 Jul – Nine Inch Nails, Jane's Addiction, Mew
Nine Inch Nails have had a very long two years. Since April 2007, when Year Zero was released, they (or rather he, as there is no need to be reminded that NIN is essentially Trent Reznor) have been working non-stop either touring or reshaping the music industry after the split between Interscope and the band. Since then they’ve toured relentlessly throughout North and South America, Australia and finally Europe. This, according to Reznor, is the last time they’ll tour. Fortunately it’s not the end of Nine Inch Nails, but it’s still a harsh blow to lose such a band from the live scene.
Reznor’s first guest is Denmark’s Mew. Hailing from Copenhagen, their music varies from sharp indie-rock to full blown progressive. With a short 7 song set and an unengaged crowd, they made a good impression nonetheless. Lead singer Jonas Bjerre’s distinctive Scandinavian voice rose high among the arena’s very high rafters. …
