regarding Nine Inch Nails' farewell shows. has been running a pretty excellent series of posts about Nine Inch Nails' final live shows, the best of which contains some bootleg footage from the Tues., Aug. 25 show in New York City. Frontman Trent Reznor brought out ex-Bauhaus singer Peter Murphy for three tunes - "Reptile," Bauhaus' "Kicked in the Eye," and Joy Division's "Dead Souls," which was featured on the Crow soundtrack, as well as the Downward Spiral re-release.

The video quality is a little pixelated, but the sound came out well, aside from the mic occasionally clipping. Anyway, it's stuff like this that makes me wish T-Rez wasn't pulling the plug just yet. I get his fear of playing past his expiration date - there's no way he wants to end up like Ministry. But I really, really wish he would stick it out a little longer. Dude's only 44!
