Saul WIlliams + NIN + Radiohead = The Inevitable Rise & Liberation of Niggy Tardust
I absolutely love how "pull a Radiohead" is now a commonly used phrase. Yes, Radiohead will be added to the new edition of the Oxford Dictionary as a verb ... (as in, "yeah, we Radioheaded our debut")
Apparently Saul Williams is doing the same thing, except his is way gaggier because (a) he collaborated with friggin' T. Reznor/Nine Inch Nails, (b) the album's called The Inevitable Rise & Liberation of Niggy Tardust (what!?), and (c) uh ... who the hell is Saul Williams anyway? Okay, a lot of people know who he is, but as Mr. Reznor himself says:
You obviously will be the judge of this in the end. One thing that is very different in our situation is that Saul's not the household name (yet!) that Radiohead is, and that means we need your support on this more than ever.No, this Williams/NIN collaboration will most likely not make somewhere between (allegedly) six and ten million dollars, but hey -- I like the idea. Don't know if I'll pre-order it, though ... hmm ...
