Does this mean we'll be hearing James Murphy aping Stephen Stills getting "sexy" on "Bluebird" type tracks?

oh. oh. oh. oh.

oh.

I'm a big LCD Soundsystem fan, but man this sounds like a bad idea even to annouce. Didn't LCD prove they could be a kick ass classic rock band with their "Jump Into The Fire" cover? Why don't they just release the next album like this and not say a word?

oscar, Monday, 20 October 2008 20:58 (nine years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I agree with Mackro, this is quite puzzling. I felt LCD Soundsystem were offering something rather unique, whereas...how much more "classic rock" do we need in the world?

To whatever degree Murphy works in the studio, it's safer to say LCD Soundsystem are a band than a solo project. They are definitely James Murphy's band, but a band they are.

We could get into the "what exactly IS a band" argument if you want!

oh we really don't! seriously, this sounds like "LCD soundsystem frontman and drummer act as rhythm section for some other dudes"; it's a bit of a leap to "why didn't LCD just go classic rock already??" when he appears to be just, you know, playing bass rather than writing the songs and playing the majority of the music.

I really was into LCD Soundsystem at the beginning when it was Murphy screwing around and liked that the project evolved into a live band and was good live, but it's one of those situations where I enjoy the music but feel like it's a consensus pick. As in, I wouldn't turn down seeing them live and appreciate new music, but I'm not clamoring for it?

Having a really broad, annoying crowd is one of the problems with consensus favorites. In closing, LCD Soundsystem is the 00s brooklyn party version of dave matthews band. thanks for listening

I was thinking about this on the way to work this morning after nostalgically putting on Primal Scream's XTRMNTR, which I think was where Murphy and Goldsworthy first worked together

Goldsworthy was definitely the production/dance tracks guy and his work really shines on all the early DFA releases but once LCD started to break as a band, I feel like the perception of DFA became less about a label/dudes doing cool dance 12" releases and production work and more "that label with LCD Soundsystem and friends"

kind of borne out by LCD turning into this live act that's incorporated people making it seem like it's the label that coalesced into a band

Press release from Steve Martin at Nasty Little Man

RHINO TO SOMEHOW RELEASE "VINYL REISSUES" OF LCD SOUNDSYSTEM TITLES ALREADY AVAILABLE THROUGH DFA

https://store.dfarecords.com/collections/albums

Despite being in print for years and ready available at https://store.dfarecords.com/collections/albums, Rhino has announced that they are releasing vinyl reissues of LCD Soundsystem’s self-titled debut album, 45:33, This Is Happening and London Sessions—which was news to the band who issued the following statement:

“LCD Soundsystem certainly aren’t announcing shit, as they had no idea that these were even coming out. Just buy the records from DFA, like you have been able to for years.”

The Rhino press release also describes LCD Soundsystem as "one of the freshest sounds on the London underground scene in the early 2000s” so that shows how seriously anyone should take it.

Loud guitars shit all over "Bette Davis Eyes" (NYCNative), Monday, 12 June 2017 21:58 (six months ago) Permalink

My guess is that someone at Rhino had tix for the MSG show and subsequently felt pathologically aggrieved ever since the bogus reunion was announced.

hi there again…

i really just wanted to say something about these new shows in brooklyn.

last time we played Brooklyn Steel, we did 5 nights, and the tickets sold out quickly. everyone got very mad, and we in the band got all upset, and there were cries of bots, etc.. so we dug in, worked with the promoter to delete a bunch of questionable transactions, tried to control tickets the best we could, and discovered that it was actually very few pro scalpers and bots. (fact is, scalpers were announcing tickets for sale to our show before they were even available at all, with the idea that they could put out crazy prices in the beginning, and if anyone bit, they’d scramble to try to find a ticket, or, well, i guess sell a fake one). the fact was that there were many more people who wanted to see us than we had tickets for, which is awesome and a bummer at the same time.

outside of all that, the shows were very fun for us. we were close to home and the crowd was fucking great. we got the idea that we should do it again as soon as possible in hopes that more people who wanted to see us but missed us could come see us then. and this is the first time when both we and the venue had a block of dates available in a row, so here we are. 7 nights. with the 5 before it's like, more than a big venue, which we hope will be just fine.

i had a lot of back and forth about these shows with our very wonderful, concerned, thoughtful and on it managers and agents, and the professional consensus was that playing them was, frankly, a bad idea. to explain: we just did this in april, so they might seem “less special” now. for reasons i can’t seem to quantify, the earlier gigs were considered special, so they were in higher demand and sold out very quickly. but the undermining of some of the specialness is precisely what we’d love to accomplish with these gigs. they’re just some gigs. they’re in our home town, so we can totally walk there. they’re no more special than any other gigs. nothing unusual will be happening, other than what always happens at our gigs, which is us playing a bunch of songs as well as we can. we’re going to be playing a LOT in the near future, so they’re certainly not worth getting on a plane for, in our opinion. it’s NOT a finite resource. it is certainly 100% not worth paying some crazy amount over face value for them. we’re playing in other places this year, a lot, and that’s likely close to wherever it is you live (unless you live far from things, which i’m sorry about—but it still wouldn’t be worth flying to these.)

playing more seems to be the best antidote. unless we play big places, which are ok sometimes, but not our favorite things all the time. or, if i read some blogs correctly, we should charge way, way more for the tickets. this isn’t interesting for us mainly because people with a lot of extra money aren’t the only people we want to play to. (don't get me wrong: we’re aware that if the tickets are, like, $15, they just get resold for a lot more, and we sit there like morons wondering how we’re going to pay our crew, but, you know…) the last solution, which i like, is requiring an ID which matches your ticket. this is somehow still totally illegal here in new york, which makes me pretty bonkers.
so, that’s where we are. here are some shows which we’re really excited to play, and we think are worth maybe precisely what the tickets cost. and maybe if no one buys a scalped ticket for more than the face value, the room will feel a little empty, but at least we’ll be done with this crap once and for all, as scalpers aren’t in it to troll music fans—they’re in it to make money, and if no one feeds them, the natural consequence is that they’ll just thin way the fuck out.

thank you guys for reading.

james

ps. i really didn’t want to make any more announcements of any kind until we had a release date for the LP, but these shows are this week, and we’re still getting the artwork finalized so they can make covers, which we need to solidify the date, so that’s still happening. watch this space. and by “this space”, i mean the internet.

Ever since the ticket chaos surrounding The Cure at Irving Plaza (1000 capacity club) in NYC in '97 I've wondered why that method wasn't used by bands who professed to care about scalping. Had no idea it was illegal.
