LCD Soundsystem has released a two-minute trailer for the upcoming feature-length documentary about the band’s end and their much-hyped farewell show, “Shut Up and Play the Hits.”
In the teaser Murphy reveals that the band broke up basically because he thought he was getting too old to be a rock star. He was like Danny Glover in “Lethal Weapon”—getting too old for this shit.
“There’s a highly depressing monologue at the opening of George Clooney’s “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” in which Sam Rockwell says, “When you’re young, your potential is infinite. You might do anything, really. You might be Einstein. You might be DiMaggio. Then you get to an age where what you might be gives way to what you have been. You weren’t Einstein. You weren’t anything. That’s a bad moment.” LCD Soundsystem may be broken up and James Murphy may be dancing into his mid-40s, but at least he’s avoided that moment. The chaos at Madison Square Garden during their final farewell show was one for the ages—no one will ever be able to say Murphy wasn’t anything.
