I guess that's that then
« on: 05 Feb 2011, 18:02 »

Officially calling it quits after first saying that it would be their last tour ever, then saying that maybe no they'd still do stuff, lcd soundsystem have said that their show on april 2nd will be their last show ever.

I've managed to see them twice in the last year, and both times were pretty fantastic, this makes me pretty sad.

At the time of Sound of Silver they were meant to play a festival in Mexico City but there were some scheduling issues and it never happened. Then the year I moved to Japan they played Mexico City and didn't play Japan except for a festival.

I remember reading some interview with James Murphy back in '04 or so talking about how he had worked with Trent Reznor and how he didn't understand how Reznor could make music when it was so obvious he was not enjoying himself at all.

Sounds like Murphy's hit that point himself. I suppose being cast as some sort of disco Bob Dylan does that to you.

Same thing happened to me. I was pretty sure I would be able to put my self in the general area of LCD Soundsystem when I was travelling in the U.S this summer past. They just played my old hometown a few days ago.

Murphy strikes me as the sort of guy that wouldn't continue making music if making music didn't make him happy.

I am pretty sure he fully intends to keep making (or at least producing) music. The statements they made when This Is Happening was announced/released just indicated he wanted to end the thing while it was still decent instead of taking the chance it would jump the shark.

The P4k article seemed to indicate that the band was taking too much of his time. Considering he cashed in after 3 albums + an EP over ~6 years I doubt it was the recording commitment that was the problem.

Well, he's not 25.

But he's openly stated that he's going to continue making music, it just probably won't be under the LCD moniker.

He'll still be producing and it's probably not long before we see a studio project.

With hindsight, I was dismissive of this terrific band, who ultimately produced about four records full of good to great material. In particular, Sound of Silver and This is Happening are superb modern pop records of the kind which I complain never seems to happen any more. Yes, they wore their influences on their sleeves and most of their songs were throwbacks to existing singles but they actually provided that difficult juxtaposition of smart and danceable which seems rare in music these days. I have some good memories of their records coming out and all of the stuff I did whilst listening to them. I can imagine I'll still be listening to them for many years to come.

Terminal 5 is fine. Not ideal maybe but I've been to plenty of good shows there. I'd rather be in an all standing room venue than watching LCD Soundsystem from Orchestra Section QQ several hundred yards from the stage anyway. Or any band for that matter.

I'm excited about the shows at Terminal 5.  All the gigs I've seen there have been excellent, and I didn't want to break my rule of "the garden sucks i refuse to ever go see another show there" so this works out!

I was introduced to LCD Soundsystem when they opened for Les Savy Fav and the Arcade Fire on Randall's Island in 2007. That show counts among the most memorable of my life.

I have never felt more euphoric about being so exhausted that I could hardly stand.

This. Good lord, this. Fuck the Garden. I once had FLOOR SEATS for Lupe Fiasco/Kanye West at the Garden and I sat approximately 300 feet away from them.

If I have the chance to go to any of these shows I'll be favoring Terminal 5 over MSG.

DFA is probably going to be his main thing now - I think that when artists decide to get busy on their own labels it generally seems to end their band or one of their projects (see Jack White ending White Stripes)

so they've got a monthly mix thing going on (this one's from Tyler Pope), free download: http://pitchfork.com/news/41582-dfa-launches-monthly-mix-series/

Its a shame, but I can see that being part of a hard working band can just drain people. I mean, who's to say Zeppelin or Hendrix would've kept going on for ever and a day? Not a great comparison but bands can't last forever.

Join me in doing both.

I've got the tab open waiting for me to start it but I just don't feel emotionally strong enough right now. I mean no matter when I choose to watch I imagine I'll blubber like a child (especially when "All My Friends" is involved) but hopefully I'll get to a point where I can at least keep it reasonably together
