12 Years of DFA: Too Old To Be New, Too New To Be Classic

8 May 2013

“Our story begins here, at Manhattan’s East Village, at a small club called Plant Bar. Inside, you’ll find James Murphy, a 32-year-old musician, DJ and sound engineer who believes his chance of success has already faded from view. Little does he know he will go on to form LCD Soundsystem, one of the most popular and loved bands of the decade.”

Great mini-documentary about DFA Records, home to our pals YACHT, LCD Soundsystem, The Rapture, The Juan Maclean, Nancy Whang, Black Dice, Sinkane and many more. Now I just want to listen to DFA bands all night and dream about taking over James Murphy’s exquisite life (cruises, peanut butter, fedoras, tuxedos). All hail DFA! Long may you run.

(Please email us at wearenerds@www.ballroommarfa.org to find out which LCD Soundsystem song is our favorite, how we ordered The Rapture’s “House of Jealous Lovers” Insound Tour Support Series Vol. 9 back in 2001, and our secret, mildly passionate history with Hey Dude.)
