Down a lonely side street... (Driving Game Detour)


It is with a heavy heart that I report the passing of Steve Albini. For those of you who know of his work, you know he was hugely influential in the 90’s music scene and helped create a great deal of the music we all love.

He helped engineer for Nirvana, Pixies, The Breeders, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Mogwai, the Jesus Lizard, Don Caballero, PJ Harvey, The Wedding Present, Joanna Newsom, Superchunk, Low, Dirty Three, Jawbreaker, Neurosis, Cloud Nothings, Bush, Chevelle, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant (as Page and Plant), Helmet, Fred Schneider, The Stooges, Owls, Manic Street Preachers, Jarvis Cocker, The Cribs, the Fleshtones, Nina Nastasia, The Frames, The Membranes, Cheap Trick, Motorpsycho, Slint, mclusky, Labradford, Veruca Salt, Zao, The Auteurs, Spare Snare, Foxy Shazam, etc.

As a memorial to his work, I’d like to throw out a detour from our long-running Driving Game. I ask that you follow the same rule for this single-thread detour. No need to check the cheat sheet, dupes from the main game will be allowed but try not to repeat in the thread, and as a special rule for this one, make sure the artist was connected to Steve Albini.

Thanks for playing.
