First let me start off by saying that I hadn’t listened to an LCD Soundsystem album up until two weeks ago when I bought ‘Sound of Silver’. Last night was the premiere of “Shut Up And Play The Hits” which is the concert film directed by Will Lovelace and Dylan Southern of the band’s last ever gig in Madison Square Garden. The gig footage is the highlight and is inter cut with footage of James Murphy explaining his decision on ending the band on such a high. It’s clear that the guy isn’t sure whether he’s doing the right thing or not and he’ll only realistically know in hindsight. Fair balls to him on doing it though cos as he says himself: “I want to do other stuff. I like to make coffee”.

Would have loved to have been there, can’t believe you only discovered them two weeks ago… Where you been?
Listening to other music. 😛 Plus I don’t like the whole hipster thing which might have put me off. Decent tunes though.
