    Does it seem amazing that its 12 years since LCD Soundsystem premiered their style icon piece “Losing My Edge” with its iconic slap me in the face video?

     

     



    Since then the band have been through an entire career, broken up, put out a retrospective DVD and now (as if to FULL STOP everything) are completing it with a 5 disc vinyl set of their last live show like the best of all Prog Rock bands.

    At the time though, the tune was dope - rocking along with its electro bass throb stolen from Killing Joke “Change” - and calling out hipsters everywhere with this challenge -

     



    And we all dug it lots. And laughed at the archness of it all. Every bar in Newtown changed its playlist.

    Reflecting back on it however we are even 10+ years further way from James Murphy’s list of essential hipness, and that’s 10 more years of obscurity for most of these acts. So we decided to honour the process of passing the baton we should set up a #throwbackthursday feature working our way through his way and (re)introducing some of the acts James’ was raving on about. That will let you make that famous compilation of every great song ever, by everybody.

    All together now …  “I heard you and your band all sold your  guitars and bought turntables, I heard you sold your turntable and bought guitars” ..

     

    Be sure to check back next Thursday for the first installment!
