My guest on this installment is rock and roll musician and producer Steve Albini. He's the owner of Chicago's Electrical Audio, and has recorded more than a thousand bands, including Nirvana, The Stooges and many others. He's known for approaching his work humbly, as an engineer, rather than as a producer.
I talk with Steve about growing up punk rock in Montana, about his college days in Chicago, and how he developed his production skills and ideals. We also talk a bit about his strong ideas on the music industry. He's well known for a piece he wrote in Maximum Rock & Roll on the awful economics of major labels.
