Footage Of Trent Reznor Playing Keyboard For 80’s New Wave Band

Prior to forming Nine Inch Nails with himself in 1988, Trent Reznor played in several new wave and pop bands in the 80’s, including tickling the ol’ plastic ivories for Cleveland, Ohio based Slam Bamboo, as seen in this video. Trent was actually composing Pretty Hate Machine for himself at the time, and you don’t have to look too hard at his face to see he’s ready to spread his nine inch nail-tipped wings and fly the hell away from whatever this is.
