The article profiles punk-rock godfather and Electrical Audio owner Steve Albini. It mentions that Albini founded the influential act Big Black in Chicago in early 1980's and carried over scabrous, hardhewn minimalist sound when he joined Shellac music band. It also notes that Albini's production style reflects his musical aesthetic wherein he prefers raw and unadorned sound of a live band to multi-tracking that are artificiality of meticulous.
