Another Pre-NIN Trent Spotting



Here's some footage of Trent doing keyboard duties for a Cleveland band called Slam Bamboo.  You can spot him at about :58 plinking away on a Prophet-5 and looking as if he is realizing this video will one day come back to haunt him.  (Thanks for sending this, Matt!)

Afterward there's a link to a funny news clip about his old band "Exotic Birds" and some crazy new thing called "Sampling"....? lAWL

They opened for Culture CLub?...haha I had no idea...

I was expecting the worst, but that was a really good song for what it's worth. The horn section makes it work.

this is amazing music tom, like ministry synthpop albums both bands changed to include guitars at some point :), is there any music from your former bands before assemblage 23 tom? i think you should put some rare A23 tracks from 1988 to 1998 that haven't been released onto soundcloud.com which is an addictive site to hear rare tracks from vomito negro, liquid g. and even x-fusion and wumpscut :) i love old music more, i think 80's synthpop should take revenge on the world and come back to the days of the psychedelic furs and soft cell, depeche mode and many others.

Ahh, Cleveland. Musically, Cleveland almost never seems to disappoint. I think it's the decaying factories & the polluted lake that provides this drive to become famous & get the hell out of town. lol 'Mistake on the lake" is right. Trust me, I'm a born & raised product of this wasteland known as Cleveland. (Hence the 216 in my S/N)
