LCD Soundsystem bow out in spectacular style for Record Store Day


Record Store Day is a bit bittersweet for someone who loves Record Stores as much as I do. Great that you’re coming to check out what’s on offer – but what about the rest of the time? And those people who merely go to snap up stuff to flog on ebay? Scumbags. Utter, TOTAL SCUMBAGS.

One of the most amazing things I have heard about coming this coming year for Record Store Day (April 19, 2014) is the 5LP boxed set (yes, FIVE LPs) of The Long Goodbye: LCD Soundsystem Live At Madison Square Garden, This is an unabridged recording of LCD Soundsystem’s near four-hour farewell show at New York’s Madison Square Garden, back in 2011. This will get a full release on May 19.

This below was LCD Soundsystem’s very first single, back in 2002. ‘Losing My Edge’ is one of my favourite tracks of the last twenty years, and this video shows what was clearly a great night being put to bed in style.

And there’s a rather awesome steal from Daft Punk’s ‘Da Funk’ included here, too…

The following is the 28-song strong tracklist (deep breath):
Dance Yrself Clean
Drunk Girls
I Can Change
Time To Get Away
Get Innocuous!
Daft Punk Is Playing At My House
Too Much Love
All My Friends
Tired / Heart Of The Sunrise
45:33 Intro
You Can’t Hide (Shame On You)
Sound Of Silver
Out In Space
Ships Talking
Freak Out / Starry Eyes
Us v Them
North American Scum
Bye Bye Bayou
You Wanted A Hit
Someone Great
Losing My Edge
All I Want
Jump Into The Fire
New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down
