Albini is truly the greatest recordist of our era and one of the best of all time. He may be eccentric, but I must admit he is not quite a sell out. It seems if anything that he has been the last thread of artistic integrity in the mainstream recordings of several bands and albums, and has already been pointed out, he hardly made any money of any of them!

I enjoy practically EVERYTHING he has recorded, and his touch is a sure sign that you will enjoy a band's album.

In regards to this mainstream vs indy debate..

Albini is actually right about the parasitic and exploitative music industry which destroys the art. He is a bit correct, and perhaps giving you a confession from the inside view about how sonic youth should be a bit embarassed, because to a degree they were in fact scouts. I absolutely adore what bands like SY and Nirvana did to mainstream music, utterly destroying hair bands BUT, none-the-less they did give the parasites of the music industry ample room to invade our otherwise delightful indy music scene...
ALL art has went through this debate from all eras. The rich and elitists and exploitative businessmen always are the wealthy patrons and consumers of art, and the artists always deal with this struggle. We should be able to criticize the exploitation without necessary judging the artists who both use and are used by the system. At best, it is just a wink and a nudge...

Kurt Cobain is the Carravagio of our generation, and the music industry are the Medicis.. Albini, he is just the Saint Francis dinosaur a bit out of touch and yet intuitively aware of the drama of the business, but at least a shines a light into the darkness, and all light in the context of darkness at times seems a contradiction to itself, but inevitably your eyes adjust..

One of my favorite quotes to pass out to after a night of heavy Derek style drinking. That kid, + that damned love/hate relationship w/ whiskey. Worst ex-girlfriend ever. She shows up at random times, begging him to take her + he loves 'er so much that he's just gotta, gotta, gotta. After a few days she starts wearin' on 'em though, + he tells her to get lost again. Wines a bit sweeter, a bit more understanding. Even if not quite as sexy. She can sit on his fridge-top looking all sexy sometimes for days on end, and he doesn't even have to touch her.

But Swa(y) + Ms. Ezra Brooks, they've had some great times w/ that quote..... Room dark as shit and spinning, that quote will slow things down a bit.

Hey guys,

I'm just going to explain my post by saying that that quote fucking bored me to death, I think it's one of the worst quotes I've ever heard and I don't really hate things without humor, there are some quotes that I really dig (from Derek, atsonicpark, Glice, Dead-Air...) but I listened to that quote when I wasn't that much into quoting (basically, at the time, I was thinking that quotes = boring). Now, maybe I should give it another try but seriously, from what I remember, it was just plain boring...

It's a quote. It doesn't give you a fucking personality.

Hhaa, Robe. actually made a tribute (in title anyway) cd.. Quotes:Special Low Frequency Edition (Boris made the Absolutego tribute version too). Great album. Phases 3 is also awesome. The thing is, it was such a simple but perfect quote that there really doesn't need to be any more speechdrone stuff that sounds like this album -- and yet there was...

(I just fuckin adore the structure of the quote. Quoteage eventually gives way to unquoteage with quote-percussives, and the way that these people did it is beyond mere worship. It really is a compositional masterpiece, up there with Bach and Cage.) __________________

I love that record, but to be honest, I like meth more. "Hex" and "The Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Skull" totally blew my mind. Driving stoned in the desert with those sounds is surreal. I love the wild west "Blood Meridian" influences. Meth is one of today's most important drugs.
