ABSTRACT
The article presents an interview with Steve Albini, a sound producer who had recorded over 1500 records. Albini reminisced about the watershed record "Rid of Me," which was still considered one of the best records he had recorded. He recorded the album at Pachyderm Studios, where he also did other albums like the "Silkworm," "Failure" and "Nirvana." The producer was therefore asked on the reason for his particular affinity with the facility.
