Steve Albini is in the recording „business“ one of the less figures, who stands a bit outside, but is at the same time one of the most influential for modern band recordings. The reason is in my option, that he is a real musician on a constantly experimental way in playing (Shellac, Black Flag…) and recording with the greed to find always fitted ways in sound and band recording. I guess he is famous for his drumsound, but i think it’s far beyond. He is questioning everything and is a very noconformist. This quite philosophic Q&A interview discribed his viewpoints and you hear between the lines the critical aproach he has.
