The Muse Won’t Pay Your Bills with Steve Albini

Today we talk with legendary recording engineer Steve Albini. He’s produced thousands of albums (including Nirvana, The Breeders, Pixies, PJ Harvey) and runs his Chicago studio Electrical Audio as a highly accessible destination. He also makes his own music in the band Shellac.

He’s made a living finding the balance between art and money; two entities that don’t have a natural relationship. He talks with Devalued about his beginnings in the punk community through the economics of being in a band. Albini is known for his frank opinions and they are most appreciated in this forum.
