I detest club culture as deeply as I detest anything on earth

(Peut-être #old pour certains d'entre vous... Anyway)
Ci-dessous, un e-mail écrit par Steve Albini, en réponse à un producteur de musique électronique anglais, s'étant enquis de la permission d'utiliser un sample de sa musique.

Hey Oscar,
Sounds like you've got a cool thing set up for yourself. I am absolutely the wrong audience for this kind of music. I've always detested mechanized dance music, its stupid simplicity, the clubs where it was played, the people who went to those clubs, the drugs they took, the shit they liked to talk about, the clothes they wore, the battles they fought amongst each other... basically all of it, 100 percent hated every scrap. The electronic music I liked was radical and different, shit like the White Noise, Xenakis, Suicide, Kraftwerk, and the earliest stuff form Cabaret Voltaire, SPK and DAF. When that scene and those people got co-opted by dance/club music I felt like we'd lost a war. 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. I haven't bothered listening to the links, mainly because I'm in a hotel with crappy internet at the moment but also because it probably wouldn't be to my taste and that wouldn't help either of us.
In other words, you're welcome to do whatever you like with whatever of mine you've gotten your hands on. Don't care. Enjoy yourself.
