After the rise and fall of Oink (the file sharing program that allowed you to basically get ANYTHING you wanted), its been hard to find new music with such ease. With the ability to find everything from the latest Blood Red Shoes single to Lily Allen's vocals of LDN for remixing it gave music fans the ability to hear new music at the click of a button. Even music fans like...Trent Reznor!
When asked about his thoughts on Oink shutting down, Reznor said the following, “I’ll admit I had an account there and frequented it quite often. At the end of the day, what made OiNK a great place was that it was like the world’s greatest record store. Pretty much anything you could ever imagine, it was there, and it was there in the format you wanted...if OiNK cost anything, I would certainly have paid, but there isn’t the equivalent of that in the retail space right now.”
Seems like Trent gets it just as much as the Radiohead boys...look for a website coming soon for the next nine inch nails album; donations only!
