‘I Would Like to Be Paid Like a Plumber’

Letters of Note:

17 months after Nevermind’s release, the band began to record what would be their final album, In Utero — produced by Steve Albini, outspoken engineer extraordinaire. In November of 1992, shortly before they formally agreed on his involvement, Albini wrote to Nirvana and laid bare his philosophy in a pitch letter that is fascinating from start to finish.

Remarkable clarity.
