Trent Reznor before Nine Inch Nails

Submitted by on December 21, 2009 – 8:06 pm No Comment

Before Nine Inch Nails, Trent Reznor was in a much lesser known band called The Exotic Birds. The Exotic Birds were a typical 80’s synthpop band from Cleveland, Ohio. They started up in 1983, and Trent Reznor joined the band on keyboards, programming and backing vocals in 1985.

They didn’t really get too far, but did develop a good local fan base in Cleveland, and ended up opening for a few really big 80’s acts such as Culture Club, Eurythmics, and Information Society.

They broke up in 1988, and Trent Reznor went on to found Nine Inch Nails. They would have disappeared into obscurity, but the net always remembers! Check out The Exotic Birds (interview and performance) from 1985:
