James Murphy is cool
In the latest issue of Red Bulletin, there's a tiny interview with former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy. It further confirms my opinion of him as the coolest music dude walking the planet right now. See...
What advice would you give to young musicians?
Murphy: Make the music you'd want to listen to yourselves. And don't overdo it. Get a bass and just make a record with a bass. Strip it down, get to know your tools before you go layering everything up. It's like learning to fly a jet: fly a kite for a minute!
The LCD doco Shut up and play the hits is in this year's Film Festival, hitting NZ centres from July 19.
