Hollows Playlist: Jenks and Trent

Trent and Jenks, the two most important men in Rachel’s life at the moment. But it didn’t start that way, and that’s reflected in some of the music I relate to Trent.

Trent is another one of those characters who has been with us from book one, evolving a full 180 degrees as his and Rachel’s hidden, joined past twine with their future. When I first began working with Trent, I found “The American Way” by The Crystal Method fit his drug-lord persona perfectly, but as I began to learn more about him and the agenda behind the need for the large influx of money that Brimstone and illegal genetic medicine brought in, I found “DOA” by the Foo Fighters. The line “dancing with the bones of my buried past” just hit me as extremely apropos.  And most recently, since his fall, “Viva La Vida” by Coldplay. This track is about Napoleon, I believe, but hey, it fits!

And Jenks! There’s track ten on the Ocean’s Eleven soundtrack, “Planting the Seed.” “Peter Gunn” done by Henry Mancini is a great fit for when he’s on a run.   But the one track that made it onto the Hollows Playlist is  “Red-Tape” from Agent Provocateur, which is also on the Underworld soundtrack.  Yeah, I know the song isn’t really about little thieves, but inspiration is where you find it.  The power and drive behind the music fit Jenks perfectly  😉

Tomorrow I’ll tell you about Kisten. He’s got three of the remaining tracks.

Remaining characters:

Rachel (3), Newt (2), Kisten (3) … and one for me–my theme song after a hellish couple of years now dumping into one hellish year for everyone.

Remaining songs:

Not Going Away: Ozzy Osbourne
Only: Nine Inch Nails
Your Own Worst Enemy: Alice Cooper
Every Day is Exactly the Same: Nine Inch Nails
Never Say Never: Queens of the Stone Age
Extraordinary Machine: Fiona Apple
The Line Begins to Blur: Nine Inch Nails
Living Dead Girl: Rob Zombie

    You and Jenks saved my life. So… I was in the bathroom sitting on the floor doing that ugly silent cry and Jenks said in one of the books (paraphrasing) ‘some one hold her, she’s cracking and I’m not big enough! Someone hold her she can’t be alone’. your books have been my escape for a while and things got so bad at home I was thinking about suicide but I decided to leave instead because Jenks didn’t want me to be alone. There’s more to this story but I just wanted to say thank you so very much for writing such wonderful characters that seem so real that in my time of need he was there in my head.
