Working With Steve Albini

Post by boxcar » Sat Nov 26, 2016 4:40 pm

Hey everyone,
I have a chance to work with Steve Albini for a week but I need to raise some funds for the trip to France. If you can help out in any way by donating or sharing on social media I would be very grateful. I even have rewards if you are a musician and would like my help with your music.

Thank You times one million,
-Dan

I dont have a bank account or credit card to do a donation, and my presence in social media is lame to say the least... plus, the argie peso is too devaluated these days for a collaboration of mine to mean much anyways :c I do hope you get to work with Steve though... he's one hell of a guy, and a truly exceptional artist. Best wishes!

Well, I put the deposit down. I still need to come up with a bunch of money but at least my place is locked in. Let's imagine I am going. Are there any questions you'd like to have answered I can ask?

Sounds good. Didn't see one here but I got your message. :)

The answer is they both a pretty great at what they do. Though I do think Albini has a lot more albums in my collection than Fisk. That is no indicator of quality though.

If you are interested here is the interview Steve Albini took the time out of his day yesterday to do with me. Thank you for checking it out.
