it's not really steve albini vs anything... he's always stated this view, though usually erring more on the side that it's just not his thing.

 

kind of disingenuous of them to use a private exchange in this way though

I am pleased by this offering (rant) by Albini.

Just saw this on Facebook, Pitchfork article linked some Powell track which was really good. Thanks Albini for introducing me to music that you hate.

 

edit:

 

and a Big Black track, holy shit how was I unaware of this band

yeah big black are classic! shellac too, albini has been responsible for a lot of good music, including in utero by nirvana

 

his views on sampling are hilarious, he's so passionate about it being lazy and cheap and stuff haha.

Has Albini ever spoken as passionately about the things he loves as about the things he detests?

I don't understand where the drama is (apart from the implications from the 'journalists')? Unless Albini comes out and says he's upset about the billboard.

Yeah just Albini being Albini innit.

 

I think he's got the wrong end of the stick here tbh. Didn't realise Powell is the joint owner of Diagonal Records who put out stuff by Haswell etc. He was probably quite pleased to be told to fuck off by his hero. You wouldn't want anything less from Albini if you were a fan lol.

 

Just been listening to this podcast type thing he does

He's pretty great, looking forward to him supporting ae in London.

 

Not sure Albini's response is that impressive of a rant, but makes for interesting marketing I guess.

Albini can produce the hell out of sludgy rock albums though

 

The Jesus Lizard, Weedeater, Om, etc

the powell thing is kind of gimmicky tbh - music isn't bad tho

 

albini's opinions on rave seem a bit more evolved and understandable than henry rollins

so many producers, so little time

 

 

I've not really listened to his stuff til now, but I've listened to Russel Haswell and Prostitutes and they are on his label Diagonal
