In Part 2, Geoff & Eli get Ian’s views on recording as sonic illusion – “if it’s done well, then the seams don’t show” – the story of an ill-fated Fugazi / Steve Albini session – “one of the greatest sessions we ever did” – and thoughts about the music business today.

The guys talk about the modern music economy, and the new realities facing music producers and consumers, hitting on Dischord’s label model and Fugazi’s negotiations with Ticketmaster as a precedent for how an artist like Kid Rock is working to establish lower ticket prices today.
