LCD Soundsystem - Daft Punk Is Playing At My House (DFA)
UK release date: 21 February 2005
Damned is the one who hears this track and defies the urge to even tap a toe. Wasted is the tune when listened to quietly on the bus so as not to irritate the pensioners.
Because the excitement this punk funk helping of magnificence arouses is possibly a virtual simulation of the sentiment you would feel if the French fancies themselves were knocking at your door asking for a party.
James Murphy - one half of DFA Records, two halves of LCD Soundsystem - has taken your favourite house tune and wiped it on a dirty beer-sodden punk-wielding floor, then trashed it together with all the grime an ecstasy pill can muster. It hiccups along soundly as one of the best on the eponymous album. Punk rock saved Murphy as a child from a drab existence. Let him save you from a wasted weekend. Grab a copy and get yourself to a party.
