The self destruct tour and nin/bowie that followed looked so damn cool. I did not get to attend those but I’ve seen NIN live 9 times. Last 2 in sf were fantastic.Bringing it back to the Goth/Peter Murphy discussion earlier:
I saw NIN open for Bowie, instead of a set break they just started trading musicians, the swap ended with Bowie’s band backing Trent and Bowie playing sax and then Trent playing keyboard for Bowie.
I still have a bootleg some where of the Bowie set, it ends with Trent singing Scary Monsters and Bowie singing Hurt.
Black metal was "invented" by Swedish, English and Danish bands in the 80s, but whatevs...This dismissal of 90s music is stupid.
You had all those droning acts like Mogwai, Godspeed you black emperor etc.
Trip hop if you're into that (the number of people who had sex to Portishead is mind boggling)
Sonic youth kept releasing good stuff and grunge bands followed up
Pavement, Primal scream
Silver Jews were around (RIP)
All these kinda upper middle brow bands electro acts like Boards of Canada, Amon Tobin or Autechre released their best inputs.
Techno as we know it emerged and hip hop became ascendant
Blur, Pulp and all those brit assholes
Church burning Norwegians invented black metal
Shoegaze with My bloody valentine and assorted acts
