Steve Albini’s Hatred Of Dance Music Has Become A Billboard | Music News

Albini billboard

 

Not everyone likes contemporary dance music, and fans should not expect everyone to lend a favourable ear. Musician Steve Albini is one of those critics, and now London commuters know about it thanks to a huge billboard on Commercial Street in East London. Oscar Powell asked whether a sample of Albini’s voice could be used for a song (“Insomniac”), and the reply is what has been turned into a billboard, with Alibini’s consent.

 

“Sounds like you’ve got a cool thing set up for yourself”, begins the email before Albini adds further down: “I detest club culture as deeply as I detest anything on earth. So I am against what you’re into, and an enemy of where you come from but I have no  problem with what you’re doing.” Well, at least Powell got permission!
