I bought the last Saul Williams CD after hearing List Of Demands on The Radio 1 Rock Show.
Now that Trent has taken more of a producer/collaborator role on the next Saul Williams album, cunningly called The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of NiggyTardust!, it has to be worth a listen.
With Trent’s troubles with record labels of late it comes as no surprise that the next thing to bear the Reznor name has no corporate involvement. The Williams album is available for direct download from a web-site. Similar to the way that Radiohead have done with their latest release. This time you have a choice of either supporting the artists involved or to just grab the music and run. For the sum of $5, that’s only about £2.50, you can purchase the music with a clear conscience and also select the quality of the audio you require.
Trent says that it’s the most involved he has been in any project since Antichrist Superstar, Manson’s finest hour.
All I have to do now is wait for the download link in an email on November 1st to see how it sounds.
