...especially when you see Andy Falkous at ATP, y'hear?
"The last time I was at ATP it was all about people turning up and going 'what's it like to work with Steve Albini?' And I would say: 'shall I give you his chalet number and you can go over and fucking ask him yourself?' What do people think it's like to work with Steve Albini? He's a guy, with a body and a head. He presses record when you start playing. You need to say whether or not you like the take or not and then you get to keep it or you do another take. I mean, I don't know what magic people think goes on in his studio. He inspires you using voodoo, or he's the Jose Mourinho of record producing or something. I just don't quite understand, and yet so many people ask it."
