This week Podcast Features Option 30
Cover of The Thompson Twins - Lies
Option 30 was a New Wave band from the 1980s, in which Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails played the keyboard and supplied lead vocals. The band also featured Tim Smith (guitars/vocals), Jim Nordstrom (bass/saxophone) and Todd Nero (percussion).
Option 30's style is similar to Falco and early albums by The Police. The band managed to record a demo (see below) before Trent Reznor left for The Innocent, Exotic Birds and finally, his own band, Nine Inch Nails. The demo was then shelved until after the explosive success of Nine Inch Nails' album The Downward Spiral, when it was finally re-released.
