    JAMES MURPHY OF DFA RECORDS AND LCD SOUNDSYSTEM MAKES HIS DEBUT DJ PERFORMANCE IN IRELAND

    SUNDAY NIGHT AT THE VILLAGE WITH ARVEENE AND K.I.L DJS SUPPORTING, DOORS 11PM


    James Murphy (LCD soundsystem/DFA records) 'The Pharrell Williams of punk-funk'

    James spent most of the '90s doing live sound engineering for US punk bands before finding his own place in the world with the super cool LCD soundsystem and DFA records. A band and a label that look set to make their own mark on the planet with their off the radar sounds.

    In New York he teamed up with a contrasting but complimentary partner-in-musical-crime in England's Tim Goldsworthy as part of the Death From Above aka DFA label and production team, and touring with his very own rock 'n' roll dance band.

    Losing My Edge, the 2002 single that launched LCD Soundsystem's recording career, skewered the vanity, insecurity and one-upmanship of the ageing hipster with hilarious accuracy and remains an anthem around the globe. Further singles and an album have followed and have garnered excellent reviews.

  • The album's a bit soulless, but "Losing My Edge" is classic.
    His music's questionable, but as a DJ he's undeniably clever. If I'm not working, I think I'll go to that.

    [edit]

    Ah yeah, today's Tuesday...

    Anyone go to this?




  • I can't believe I missed this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
