Moribund the Burgermeister?


In the same album that Peter Gabriel has one of the greatest songs ever written, Solsbury Hill, he also has this weird song called Moribund the Burgermeister (lyrics). Apparently the song is about a disease called chorea, which caused involuntary motions akin to a weird dance, during which people would pray to St Vitus for aid because it was believed the sufferers were possessed, thus it became known as St Vitus' Dance. Yowzers.

Trent Reznor loves you


Trent Resnor, creative genius and lead behind Nine Inch Nails, has decided that the best way of giving his fans what he wants is by making his music available for free online, with optional purchases available for those who really want them. He also fired his publishers. Thanks to this you can download part of the Ghosts I-IV album for free (9 of the full 36 tracks) and just this past week their latest The Slip has also been launched as a completely free download. In addition to this, if you have the requisite creative juices and equipment, you can download project files for many of his songs for use with different music creation software, so you can create your own remixes of his music without the usual headaches.
