LCD Sound System/Hot Chip

James Murphy

James MurphyIt’s been fun while it lasted. But LCD Sound System’s third album, This Is Happening, is likely to be the band’s last.
From the moment they released Losing My Edge in 2002, music fans across the world have fallen for front man James Murphy’s (pictured) dance-meets-punk brainchild.
Their partners in crime for the tour Down Under are London’s Hot Chip, who are touring hot on the heels of the release of fourth album, One Life Stand.
Both bands are taking part in festival behemoth Splendour in the Grass, which takes place in Woodford, Queensland, in early August. These sideshows are the delicious crumbs thrown to those not fortunate enough to be heading north.
