Option 30 was a new wave band from the 1980s, in which Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails played the keyboard and supplied lead vocals. The band also featured Tim Smith (guitars/vocals), Jim Nordstrom (bass/saxophone) and Todd Nero (percussion).
I was in a sad little liquor store in Western PA the other night, buying a bottle of spiced rum as the snow came down. The After the Fire version of "Der Kommissar" came on the radio, and a middle-aged lady at the register began to sing along. Fond memories of Option 30 concerts past? Only the liquor store lady knows for sure.
