Steve Albini - RIP

What's Hot
Musicman20Musicman20 Frets: 2343
Whilst I know we have a tributes sub forum, I thought Albini would suit the general discussion as he had a huge influence over the 90s alt rock/grunge/noise sound.

Far too young. I was looking at going to see Shellac this year (and have the vinyl on pre-order!)

    Well that's a shock

    I was listening to St Vincent talking about recording at his studio only a couple of days ago.

    Uncompromising innovator.

    I’ve got tickets to the London show. I am utterly fucking gobsmacked. Huge fan of Shellac. Gutted.

    Absolute legend. 61 is no age. 


    My Trade Feedback Thread is here

    Been uploading old tracks I recorded ages ago and hopefully some new noodles here.

    I didn’t always agree with his opinions, but his existence in music was really important. Baws.

    Totally gutted! Saw Shellac a few times, he's worked on a bunch of my favourite records, and seemed so generous with sharing his knowledge and opinions. A sad loss.

    I first heard Big Black on John Peel many years ago... Some of my favourite albums were recorded by Steve Albini. That was a shock.

    A shock indeed. I was just watching him on his Electric Audio YouTube channel this afternoon.

    Such a legacy. The Songs Ohia: Magnolia Electric Co album is a personal favourite.

    Very sad, the guy's a total legend. Saw Shellac a good few times and even kind of met him once.

    That’s truly shocking -  I was so in awe of his playing, production and opinions.

    A true genius, and a great ear for melody.

    Was lucky enough to see Rapeman and Shellac - wished I’d caught Big Black…

    What a loss.
