2 Many Djs & LCD Soundsystem Radio extravaganza

January 11, 2010

Whatta collaboration. LCD Soundsystem and 2manydjs on Friday night just gone (08/01/10) took over Aussie radio station Triple J Radio for 3 hours of glorious live music mixing.

With James Murphy and Pat Mahoney representing LCD, it of course featured a whole range of eclectic disco gems as you’d expect if you’ve followed any of their previous mixes; as they put it an one point “If you’re a 17 yeard old aussie kid staying in on a Friday night, tuning in for some house/electro… be disappointed!” A mixture of farcical banter and running commentary between the four guys was a pleasure to listen to.

For those who own the Fabriclive: 36 compilation (complied by James & Pat) you’ll be familiar with the style – and if you don’t: a) What’s wrong with you? b) I strongly urge you to check it out before this hefty time investment.

Of particular remembrance was a double header featuring relative Australian electro unknown’s Flash And The Pan, with Waiting For A Train – which was then followed by an early Talking Heads demo of Once In A Lifetime that I’d never heard of before, called Right Start. Funk me, it was funky as funk.

Also, a german version of Heroes sung by German Party Rock (Come on! Whatta genre name! Ja!) outfit Die Idole were a reet hoot. I love mixes like this – fantastic for discovering hidden little gems that generally shy away from the mainstream. Fanjizzmic.
