Grrr-ching!

Just how in God’s name did Steve Albini actually manage to get that Big Black guitar sound? I mean, I’ve played with a lot of guitars, and I’ve played with a lot of pedal effects, and lots of other people have played with lots of both, but I don’t think that anyone’s ever come as close to reproducing the sonic sensation of a dental drill to the head in quite the same way that Albini did on Big Black’s last couple of records. “Kerosene,” in particular, makes my eyes water. And that’s a good thing.
