Nine Inch Nails

Another Version of The Truth, 2009

On 5th May, 2008, Nine Inch Nails released The Slip for free via their website, as a gift to their fans. Or as Trent Reznor put it: "This one’s on me".

On December 13th, 2008, dozens of Nine Inch Nails fans recorded the last show of the Lights In The Sky tour at Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas.

On January 7th, 2009, over 400Gb of video from the Victoria, Portland and Sacramento shows from the same tour were unofficially released by the band.

By working together, the Nine Inch Nails fan community have created "Another Version of the Truth" – a 3 disc release bringing together numerous editors, designers, and web programmers to create a professional digital film, followed by a physical release created by fans for fans.

The Downward Spiral Live, 2009

Released in collaboration with The NIN Hotline.

With over 10 High-Definition video sources, The Downward Spiral : Live is a release that has been compared positively to professional outputs. Capturing the
raw feel of a live Nine Inch Nails performance, this share-alike DVD presents impressive video and audio quality, to the extent that the band themselves have taken note. Rob Sheridan, Nine Inch Nails’ art director, commented:

"[...] we couldn’t be happier with the way the fans have organized themselves and created some truly impressive work. [This One Is On Us] has released a polished, edited, downloadable DVD of the full Downward Spiral performance from Webster Hall. The entire thing has been recorded, edited, and distributed entirely by fans, and it’s the latest example of the amazing things fans will do when their creativity isn’t limited by outdated, misguided restrictions."

The Dresden Dolls: Live in New York, 2011

Following a brief hiatus, the Dresden Dolls are back to celebrate 10 years in the music business with a (sold out) Halloween show at the Irving Plaza in New York. The concert promises special guests, rare performances, and a cacophony of Brechtian entertainment.

This triumphant return will be documented by the Dresden Dolls fan base in a project spearheaded by This One Is On Us.

Fans from all over the world will record, edit, design, and promote to produce a DVD of the evening for all the world to cherish and enjoy. This project aims to blur the link between author and reader even further – until both are one and the same.

This project is currently in progress.
