Kahimi Karie – Good Morning World
Kahimi Karie – I am a Kitten



If any of this sounds pretentious, it really wasn’t. Sure, Tool is as dark and eerie as an unfinished basement, but Keenan looked (to those of us who could actually spot him) like he was having a good time. He danced, he shimmied, he gyrated. And during one long drum break he played a card game with a member of Melt Banana, the opening act.


When he lived in the Garden District, reclusive Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor walked his dog in Audubon Park, raced jet skis in the Bonnet Carre Spillway and donned blackface and a grass skirt in Zulu.


Despite plans to stage the 2005 Voodoo Music Experience in Memphis, a city that offered a site at no cost, the festival returned to New Orleans 60 days after Katrina as a one-day event. A call from Mayor Ray Nagin to Rehage in Memphis and the support of rock star and former New Orleans resident Trent Reznor encouraged the producer to bring Voodoo back to New Orleans.
“Trent Reznor,” Rehage said, “was the one who said, ‘I’m going. I’m bringing my sleeping bag and everybody I can get to come with me. Just have a stage and a P.A. I don’t care what size it is. We’re going to New Orleans and we’re playing.’


Trent Reznor and Julian Casablancas sing on the record. Why them?
Musicians are like little children – they want to play together.
I got to know Julian when last year when the Eagles of Death Metal were opening for the Strokes, and I’ve always been a huge Strokes fan. Their first record and the first Queens record have a lot in common: they’re driving music, they’re angular, and both were recorded dry. Also, both his fans and our friends might be dismayed, confused or even angered by us teaming up that that’s enough reason to do it in the first place. The same goes for Trent. [pause] I remember getting car sick on the winding trip up to his house in the Hollywood Hills.
