Steve Albini interview

23 April 2008

Great interview from TSOYA with Steve Albini (responsible for arguably the best production in music – i.e. Nirvana, Pixies, Don Caballero, etc). Kind of long, but really worth the listen.

Here’s an excerpt:

“There was one really industrious fellow who collected a jar with his phlegm, and saturated a brick with it, and threw the brick at me.”

And if you’re interested to read about the process in which major labels rape the music industry, check out this poignant article by Albini: “The Problem With Music“.
