Aquel que fuera ingeniero de sonido y productor de bandas como Naked Raygun, The Effigies y Big Black murió el pasado jueves 11 de febrero gracias al cáncer de pancreas que padecía.
En una nota publicada en el sitio del estudio Electrical Audio de Steve Albini (integrante de Big Black y gran amigo de Iain), Albini
cuenta algunas de sus anécdotas juntos en aquellos locos ochentas.
Suelta la sopa
“Riflesport were in town from Minneapolis with a night off, crashing at my apartment in Rogers Park, and Iain and Chris Johnson had decided to meet up and paint the town red. I accompanied them both to act as wingman and because I suspected things woud get interesting. The first stop was the upstairs bar at the Metro, where Iain had been holding court with a hairdresser/bartender on whom he had designs of some kind. When Riflesport got there, The hairdresser suggested that Iain and Chris have a martini contest. Both men were championship drinkers and took to this idea with enthusiasm. They would lay back with their heads on the bar, mouths open skyward and the hairdresser would pour gin into their mouths from bottles in either hand. The first person to sit up and swallow “lost” that round.”
