LCD Soundsystem “Throw”
I will confess to not knowing jack shit about early techno or house music, so when James Murphy not only acknowledges but covers someone from the genre and credits them as a reference point, I have to take his word for it. His latest release, a B-side from digital versions of his excellent This is Happening, is a single of LCD covering Carl Craig (Paperclip People) and their track “Throw.” While I don’t know the original, the LCD Soundsystem cover is pretty much what you would expect. Tight drumming, thumping beats and James Murphy’s wild man vocals. Cool stuff.
LCD Soundsystem will be here on Oct 23rd with Hot Chip for a show at the Roy Wilkins Auditorium
