Remembering all the times Steve Albini worked with Canadian artists

Since Steve Albini, the fiercely ethical recorder of alt-rock bands, died of a heart attack in his studio in Chicago last week, tributes have been coming in from all over the planet. Cam Gordon is back with a new Completely Ignored graphic that looks at some of the Canadian acts Steve worked with over the years.

The list includes Thrush Hermit, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The Sadies, KEN Mode, and METZ. This listen isn’t quite complete–there’s a Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet album missing–but Steve was always so busy, I wonder if even he knew how many bands benefited from his work.
