Saul Williams teams up with Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor for the release of The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of Niggy Tardust, a heavy weight, thunder and lightening sound calling forth the spirits of Public Enemy, Nine Inch Nails, Old Dirty Bastard and Radiohead while running the apocalyptic spaceways laced and graced with the crystal incisions of Saul's words.
Saul Williams explains "The Niggytardust concept sets me free to do more on stage with costume, etc. than one might expect from a regular Saul Williams show. It allows me to put my theatre training to use. Ive also thought long and hard about all the discussion surrounding racial epithets etc. and chose this title as a means of furthering the dialogue while also showing how creativity will outlive and outshine hatred of any kind"
"The wall of sound that we've created is tagged with such graffiti that a passerby would seek out doors and ways to ENTER. Once inside a world defined by dreams come true they'd find aligned with the simplest act of sharing what we treasure.
The ballot or the bullet for Mohawk or the mullet is a choice between new times and dying days. And the only way to choose is to jump ship from old truths and trust dolphins as we swim through changing ways."
The album can be downloaded for free or you can pay, you choose.
