Hello, DJ JenRedlights!
Matt Sabbath 3:02:29 PM
Thank you Jen for acknowledging Steve's loss. 💚
Matt Sabbath 3:02:51 PM
Er, our loss
Jen Redlights (host) 3:03:13 PM
hello, friends! And @matt - yes, so sad!! First words out of my mouth were swears, so maybe he would have liked that.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:03:34 PM
it's an all Albini show today.

Just watched hilarious vids of Steve speaking "fake Italian" and setting his shoes afire at Pachyderm Studios in MN where he recorded a lotta bands.
•ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ•💀 3:04:32 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 3:05:15 PM
and it's SO HARD to pay tribute to the hilarity part on air. love it.
Matt Sabbath 3:05:39 PM
I was in Chicago two summers ago and almost walked to EAR studios but didnt, thinking Steve was young & would be around forever. Ugh.
Mike Tropiano 3:05:57 PM
It's even sadder because we will all enjoy this show.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:06:29 PM
part of the celebration is that he left such an insane legacy
Matt Sabbath 3:06:35 PM
Steve talking with Nardwuar is amazeballs. Steve is calm and Nardwuar is, of course, hyper 🤣
Jen Redlights (host) 3:06:39 PM
so let's enjoy that!

I have a tattoo from the first Failure album, which Steve engineered. Failure wasnt happy with the result but it's pure Steve: raw, roomy, bassy, dark, and analog.
Matt Sabbath 3:08:19 PM
Lol MrM
Jen Redlights (host) 3:08:35 PM
nice, @matt!
Matt Sabbath 3:10:12 PM
I was in a funk last night from the news but thanks to Flex Luthor/wprb for 2 hours of cleansing, pummeling sludge.
Matt Sabbath 3:12:47 PM
If yer band didn't already sound good, Steve would say "I can't/won't polish a turd." He put bands on the spot like that. He was a go between for the band and audience, but felt overproducing a band was deceptive.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:12:49 PM
Flex Luthor is always the cure!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:13:15 PM
and it's amazing how much polishing (or roughing up) he did
Matt Sabbath 3:14:37 PM

And ladies, despite some of Steve's band and song titles that are inflammatory, he was a heartfelt ally. ♀️
Jen Redlights (host) 3:16:21 PM
this set is for anyone driving down the turnpike right now who didn't think there was any good music on radio anymore
Jen Redlights (host) 3:17:44 PM
@matt he had to make some big apologies later in life to become the ally he wanted to be
Matt Sabbath 3:18:01 PM
Big Black was like an industrial mutant that believed in some real instruments and rock, presaging Ministry's turn to industrial metal.
Matt Sabbath 3:18:14 PM
Jen good point

I always wanted to put Steve and Dean Ween (Mickey Melchiondo) in a room and let their Italian-American personalities clash & ferment 😂🤣🇮🇹

Thank you, Jen.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:23:59 PM
@mike it's a celebration for sure! @jon i'm so sorry, my friend. what fun it is to listen to his life's work, though.
Jon Solomon 3:25:46 PM
I had never heard that peel session before!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:26:36 PM

Matt Sabbath 3:26:45 PM
First side of Shellac's Dude Incredible is a masterpiece. It's perfect. I still think in terms of LP sides A/B. Sorry not sorry.

Jen Redlights (host) 3:26:59 PM

Wore this tape out. Made me learn ZZ Top were more than just “Legs” too!

Early ZZ Top is total desert/stoner before it existed!
Jon Solomon 3:29:21 PM
Find the best drummer on earth (one robot, two human) and join their band, then do it three times. Remarkable.
Matt Sabbath 3:30:08 PM
The rhythm section of Shellac is one of the best ever. I feel for Todd and Bob.
Matt Sabbath 3:31:08 PM
Rhythm section of Shellac is more reliable than a cesium clock or a pulsar.
Jon Solomon 3:31:46 PM
Everyone I have texted / messaged with in Chicago is basically numb.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:32:16 PM
They lost their friend and patriarch, who could blame them. I keep secretly hoping it's a mistake.
Jon Solomon 3:33:33 PM
He recorded some new FACS material, went home and died. About as close to “dying on the job” (in a good way) as possible.

Mike Lupica 3:40:05 PM
My most lasting memory of Albini was after the Shellac gig at Jon's house in 1993. The band was selling t-shirts out of their van -- with the Shellac logo printed in black on a black shirt, which was barely visible. Each paying customer would present the shirt to Steve, who would squirt a light bleach/water mixture across the logo from a spray bottle, and then issue instructions to take it home and wash it immediately. The bleach pattern made each shirt unique and yes, I wish I still had mine.
Andrew Gruen 3:40:17 PM
shellac were certainly one of the best live bands with the most entertaining banter
Matt Sabbath 3:40:21 PM
MrM 🍖Lol
Jen Redlights (host) 3:40:48 PM
@mike SAME!!! i feel like it's here somewhere. or i should bleach a new one in tribute. not the same thing.

An amazing thing about Shellac is how cleanly Bob the bassist plays. Very little effects or anything, just a tuner. WYSIWYG. He never hides behind anything. I think that was Steve's whole thing: authenticity.

I especially glad now that I got to see Shellac and Uzeda and the 1st Unitarian church back in ‘06 I think. Thing I remember the most (besides the music) was that they all just carried their amps on stage turned them on and played. Sounded great. Just regular guys having fun.

I was Uzeda’s booking agent for a while and I can say they were among the sweetest bands of all time. First night in Chicago they took over a friend’s apartment and cooked a giant Sicilian feast for like 30 area rockers.

Jon Solomon 4:45:43 PM
I went to the record release for the EA office manager's band and they had Steve & Bob (with instruments!) get on stage to do a Q&A in the middle of this other band's set!
Matt Sabbath 4:46:12 PM
Jon Solomon 4:46:24 PM
somebody asked "what's wrong with Todd's shirt?" and Steve proceeded to berate the guy for several long minutes about how Todd's blouse was amazing and sexy, that Todd and Prince were both from Minneapolis but Prince only wore one blouse while Todd was wearing TWO blouses, which made Todd twice as sexy as Prince. Then Todd got up and walked over to the mic to berate the guy for a few minutes and went to sit down again, Steve picked up reading the guy again...
Jon Solomon 4:46:32 PM
they traded off yelling at the guy two or three times about how Todd was the sexiest man in show business and nobody talks trash about his blouses, while the audience rolled with laughter
