Steve Albini

(First off, a temporary message to you idiots on Reddit falsely claiming that I’m a neo-Nazi: no, rest assured that I am most definitely not a neo-Nazi. At one point, I pretended to be a neo-Nazi online so that I could infiltrate their ranks and make them look like morons (which they are). My neo-Nazi persona “Michael Slay” was just one of many countless fake identities that I had on the internet, which spanned every political ideology imaginable, from far-right to far-left and everything in between. In reality, I absolutely despise neo-Nazis and racists in general; my actual political views, if they can be labeled at all, are best labeled as radical centrist. I already wrote about my time infiltrating online neo-Nazis extensively in this article that I published in 2022. I will remove this paragraph in the near future, as it obviously doesn’t belong in this article. The actual article is below.)

If you are reading this, then you probably have heard that the esteemed rock musician and producer Steve Albini — who produced bands like Nirvana and the Pixies along with fronting bands like Big Black and Rapeman — died today at the age of 61. The usual lugubrious outpourings of phony grief have been rampant on social media, with countless people who had never even heard of him until now professing to have been his biggest fan. In other words, the usual thing that happens when someone even remotely famous dies.

In reality, however, Steve Albini was certainly no hero. In fact, Albini was an admitted lover of child pornography who openly promoted said child pornography in language so sickening that you may feel like a criminal just for reading it.

Here’s Steve Albini recounting buying child pornography while in Hamburg:

Jaded as I am, I can’t help but flip seeing a girl and guy of twelve or thirteen, tops, ramming Martel bottles up each other’s asses. These are not the Dutch equivalent of abused trailer-park kids, either. They look to be in excellent health and seem to be honestly enjoying this. Makes all the conventional arguments against this kind of thing seem really silly. They’re kids. Kids like to play with their own and other people’s privates. They’re just being photographed at it. Now, people who get a voyeuristic charge out of watching them, like me, I guess, well, we’ve got some grip-on-reality problems.

There’s maybe 1% of all pornography that has any effect on me, and it’s definitely not a turn-on very often. But when it is, and it’s as weird as this, it’s pretty hard to take.

The quote above came from a Boston-based music magazine called Forced Exposure that was in publication from 1982 to 1993. The issue with the Big Black tour diary above was the Winter 1988 issue (Issue #13).

Think that’s vile? It gets even worse.

Here’s Albini promoting his lifelong friend Peter Sotos’s child pornography magazine Pure:

The cover of PURE 2 is a guy holding open a toddler’s puny hole so his spuzz can dribble out. The girl is past crying. She is destroyed. […] Like I said, I like that sort of thing.

The quote above is also from Forced Exposure magazine — in this particular case, it’s from the Summer 1985 issue (Issue #7/8).

Peter Sotos — who stated that “child abuse is a sublime pleasure” — was later convicted for producing and distributing child pornography. From the Chicago Tribune:

A $100,000 bond was set Thursday for a Near North Side man who, according to prosecutors, distributed a homemade magazine that outlined ”the pleasures of child abuse, torture and murder in pornographic detail.”

Peter Gus Sotos, 25, who was arrested Wednesday in his apartment at 748 W. Belden Ave., allegedly manufactured a magazine called Pure, which included pictures depicting the ”lewd exhibition” of boys and girls, Assistant State`s Atty. Dan Jordan told Cook County Criminal Court Judge Francis Gembala.

The magazine`s first edition, published last year, said that ”child abuse is a sublime pleasure.” It also said the ”pleasures” of torture ”reach their pinnacle when the victim is a small child,” Judge Gambala was told.

Sotos became the first person charged under the revised Illinois Child Pornography Act that took effect Nov. 18, which makes possessing, manufacturing and distributing child pornography a Class 1 felony punishable by a prison sentence of 4 to 15 years. He also was charged in a misdemeanor complaint with obscenity.

Assistant State`s Atty. Robert Cleary said Sotos allegedly put the magazine together using lewd photos of children that he photocopied from illegal commercially produced pornographic magazines. The text detailed the torture and murder of children, and some nonpornographic photos illustrated those stories, Cleary said.

The magazine`s third edition, which featured the recent murder of Melissa Ackerman of Somonauk, was stopped from circulation by Sotos` arrest, said state Inspector Gen. Jeremy Margolis.

According to Sotos` lawyer, James Meltreger, Sotos is a graduate of Holy Cross High School who attended Northern Illinois University for one year and the Art Institute of Chicago for 3 1/2 years.

Meltreger said Sotos had been working as manager of a used record store in Evanston and has no criminal record. If freed on bond, Sotos would live with his mother and two brothers on the Northwest Side, the attorney said.

Meltreger argued that Sotos isn`t accused of taking any of the photos or of having any direct contact with the children.

Judge Gembala then set the $100,000 bond and continued the case until Dec. 19.

Cleary said the investigation–conducted by the inspector general, the Cook County state`s attorney`s office, the state police, U.S. Customs and Chicago police–is continuing. But he said ”there is very little hope of ever tracing the kids” depicted in the pictures because the photos came from other illegal magazines and could be years old.

Margolis said Scotland Yard found a copy of Pure in Edinburgh, in the home of a suspect in a series of brutal child abductions, murders and grave robbings. Investigators are trying to determine how the magazine was distributed.

”We simply do not know the extent to which this garbage has been circulated worldwide,” Margolis said.

Albini also produced an album for Sotos called Buyer’s Market, which Wikipedia describes as “sound collages of spoken word samples from parents, law-enforcement officers and victims of sex crimes and pedophilia”. From Vice:

The group’s third member Peter Sotos creates the darkest part of the group’s work. The Chicago native makes audio collages of tear-stained TV interviews with murder victims’ families, crack whores and abused children. The results of his efforts have appeared on their last two albums and are deeply stomach-churning, if at times hilarious. Sotos claims to masturbate over them.

When asked about his relationship with Peter Sotos in a 2012 Reddit ask me anything (AMA) thread, this is what Steve Albini had to say, doubling down in his support for Sotos:

Peter’s an old friend. I’ve known him for 30 years or so. I’ll help him do whatever he wants to do, from wash his car to edit his album.

I will not dispute Steve Albini’s tremendous musical talent, and I will not dispute that it is entirely possible to separate the art from the artist. A lot of truly great art has been made by truly horrible people. However, I am asking people to think twice before beatifying Albini. He may have been a great musician, but he was definitely not a great guy.

It goes without saying that one cannot arrest, try, and imprison dead people. Just ask Jimmy Savile’s countless victims. That doesn’t mean that it isn’t still important to know about it, however. I ask that you please share this information with anyone who you see posting about Steve Albini, as very few people know about it.

Comment:  The Wealthy Elite promote these types of degenerates as they are EASILY Controlled.  CIA provides the children for them to abuse and the degenerates abuse them.  From this point on the CIA controls the degenerates and tells them What Agendas to Promote.  All of this is straight from Tavistock in the City of London.  His wife sounds like a SATANIST.
