NIN, Billy Bragg, Low updates all mentioned in same Billboard article

All in this article:

After being out of print for the past several years, Nine Inch Nails' 1989 album "Pretty Hate Machine" will be reissued Nov. 22 via Rykodisc. The set was originally issued by TVT, which auctioned it off during an asset sale earlier this year.

Yep Roc Records' comprehensive Billy Bragg reissue series is back on the schedule for a Feb. 21 release. As previously reported, the label had expected to put out expanded versions of the singer/songwriter's "Life's a Riot With Spy vs. Spy," "Brewing Up With Billy Bragg," "Talking With the Taxman About Poetry" and "The Internationale" in September, as well as box them together with a bonus DVD.

Bassist Zak Sally has exited veteran indie rock band Low and will be replaced by Matt Livingston. "I sincerely hope that someday we can sit in the basement and make music together, but for now, there are more important things than music," Sally said in a statement.
