Bring the noise

Trent Reznor has always lived in a dark place. The world the Nine Inch Nails frontman inhabited for most of his career was one filled with paranoia and self-loathing, fuelled by addictions to drugs and alcohol. It was wrapped in intense, chaotic industrial, gothic metal that established him as a highly influential musician.

Win a chance to ask Nine Inch Nails what's bothering them

You know the concert scene in Hong Kong is improving when even non-mainstream industrial noise-makers like Nine Inch Nails are coming.

Year Zero by Nine Inch Nails

Nine Inch Nails' latest album Year Zero is the band's first concept album. 'It certainly doesn't sound like anything else out there right now,' said Trent Reznor, the founder and primary creative force behind the band. It sounds more like a soundtrack for an apocalyptic sci-fi film.

False dawn

To Matthew Bailey (letter, 'Wrong date', South China Morning Post, June 7), your father is correct. You cannot start a new millennium until you have completed the previous one.

A millennium is a thousand years. Two millennia are two thousand years.

Wrong date

A lot of things have been going on in the world related to the new millennium. There have been announcements in golf, that 'this is the last PGA match in the 20th century', or 'this will be the last Hong Kong International School prom in this millennium.' I addressed the question to my father about when the new century and millennium actually begin.
