90s in 90 Days #67: The beginning of Shellac
90s in 90 Days #67-The beginning of Shellac
Shellac played Millennium Park last night, which is both remarkable and remarkably kickass.
Two years ago, Steve Albini told me about how Shellac came to be, “A lot of these sort of grasping impulses that I saw other bands indulging in, they bothered me. I didn’t want to be part of that milieu. That reluctance or recalcitrance to be in a band was eventually overcome by the same things that made me want to play music in the first place. I started informally playing with Todd (Trainer)–just him and me, would just play stuff in a practice room whenever we were in the same town. It was really rewarding; I really liked doing it. Over the course of a couple of years,we sort of decided that we were gonna try to make a band of it.”
