After the demise of LCD Soundsystem, James Murphy has reverted back to his academic roots – by writing a book.
“That’s what I went to school for, so it’s where I come from academically,” he said in an interview with GQ Magazine. “I’m writing now, actually. A novel. I’m always making things, but whether they turn into something that I’ll consider making a part of the public world is different. I mean, I write songs every day, but only once in a while do they go out into the public sphere.
“I’m also dubious because as a person who’s known for something else, something that I wrote might get published before it was ready. Maybe I’ll have to send things in under a pseudonym, just so that they’re considered fairly. Editing is no joke.”
LCD Soundsystem did their final tour which ended in 2011. The final show was recorded at New York’s Madison Square Garden on April 2 and will be released as a DVD soon. There is also a documentary on the band which was recently accepted into Sundance.
If memories of LCD aren’t enough to keep you satisfied, James Murphy does the occasional DJ set. Keep your eyes peeled.
