I don't think it was a misleading pretense. They probably believed at that point it was their last show. I do think it was sincere. And it was a fucking great show. One should be happy to have attended, regardless of what comes after.
Yeah, seriously, and I agree it's a ridiculous grudge to hold. If you're willing to put down stacks of cash to see a band, wouldn't you be fucking over the moon that they're back together? I saw the very last Thursday headline gig, though admittedly through the good fortune it was in Melbourne. The end of that show was one of the most unreal moments I have ever experienced at a concert. I would be fucking thrilled if they reformed, and it wouldn't cheapen that gig in the slightest. What a weird mentality to have.

Anyway, maybe I should finally get around to listening to LCD Soundsystem. Maybe I'll wait for this new album and Cobbler it.

"Hey guys, I'm bored and need money. Want to be LCD Soundsystem again? We're headlining Coachella twice. I'll cut you guys in, 90/10."

"Are you fucking kidding me"
This is how it feels to me.

I feel similarly about Damon and Blur, fwiw.

And, sorry, who are the other two members of LCD that they have these successful careers outside the band? I literally have no idea who they are, outside, obviously, JM, who to someone like me, is the band for all intents and purposes.

Nancy is from The Juan MacLean. I think Pat just DJ's but I don't really know.

I think LCD Soundsystem is my favorite band right now. This is exactly the kind of music that I've been trying to find. Not only is the music amazing, but the lyrics are great as well.
My LCD Rushmore:
Dance Yrself Clean
All I Want
New York, I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down
North American Scum

Honorable Mentions: All My Friends, Tribulations, You Wanted A Hit, Daft Punk.


Anyone else get a "Heroes" vibe from "All I Want"? Such a great song.

Yes, All I Want is a "Heroes" homage.

My top three is easy - All My Friends / Someone Great / Home - and then there's about 10 songs battling it out for the Rushmore spot.

Weird that everything has been very quiet on the LCD front since early January.

It's a great homage to "Heroes", that's for sure.

I love "All My Friends", but I wore it out. Lol. That's why I didn't include it on my Rushmore. Forgot "Home" on my Honorable mentions, I love that song.
Hopefully they test out some new material this summer on tour, but yes it has been very quiet. But hey, I'm just psyched they're back. I chose a good time to get hooked on these guys.
