16. Steve Albini

Steve Albini was an uncompomising individual. He screwed the outside world, impinging himself on the social.     
He worked as a music producer with the Pixies, Breeders, PJ Harvey, Nirvana. He was proper punk. He wasn’t interested in money or fame. He worked on an hourly rate like a plumber. No percentage cuts of albums etc

Ironically he was also a good poker player. A poker face. Perhaps it was all a pretence. Bands working with him were surprised at his support and his commitment to them, and what they were trying to create.

He was rude and obnoxious, but anyone could call up to work with him. He didn’t care. He would work with anyone. Later on he apologised for his mysogyny and ignorance. But his reputation remained intact: uncompromising, blue collar, punk.
