I thought I’d post some photo’s of recording with Steve Albini. Basically, if you took a bunch of my favourite records, they’ve all been done by Steve. Nirvana’s ‘In Utero’, PJ Harvey ‘Rid Of Me’, the Pixies, the Jesus Lizard, Neurosis, Fugazi. The list is endless.
We spent just over a week at a studio called Black Box near Angers in France. He’ll only use one other studio in Europe, and that’s Abbey Road which is like, £1500 a day. He records straight to tape and get’s the best drum sound I’ve ever heard in about an hour. Steve Albini, we salute you.
