LCD Soundsystem (RIP)

For those of you keeping score at home, James Murphy has disbanded LCD Soundsystem and as of last report was planning to market his own brand of home-roasted coffee (seriously).  Also, there's supposedly some sort of movie in the works about their last performance, a concert in New York that made the Top 10 list of most bloggers in Gotham.  There's also various reports and rumors floating around about different supposed collaborations among Murphy and other artists.  Mr. Murphy seems to have found a way toward posthumous appreciation without having to actually die.

This posting is something of a love letter to LCD Soundsystem, a belated Valentine card, if you will, to a great band.  Like Mr. Murphy, I'm not getting any younger myself and am losing my edge to newer folks, and like Murphy, I'm a fan of Franz Ferdinand and of good coffee.

They don't make them like that anymore (actually, they do, which is a part of the reason that he broke up the band).
