You already know it, but Big Black are Steve Albini's old band of pisstakey punk-churners, offering transgressions at a super-fast rate as they squirm and snarl their way through the classic Songs About Fucking. This was the band's second and last record, offering industrial noise bluster like never before and even propping up a cover of Kraftwerk's "Model".

8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 12th February 2015

I have a friend who simply can’t understand how Steve Albini can be the man at the desk to so sublimely capture The Pixies at their pomp on “Surfer Rosa” and also be behind “Songs About Fucking” by Big Black, and in the same year. This is ear-clattering, industrial tininess, yes, but it’s exactly what it’s meant to sound like, is what I tell him. “Bad Penny” is one of Steve Albini’s best songs. Just like Shellac really, but faster and angrier. The album is full of similar 2 minute industrial punk songs that go through your ears and through your brain like drills. There’s also two covers: Kraftwerk’s “The Model” and Cheap Trick’s “He’s a Whore”. It’s great!
