Friday Video(s): Homosapien Plus One

Apropos of Pitchfork’s song-by-song write-up of the LCD Soundsystem catalog , which notes that James Murphy may or may not have cribbed the chorus of Pete Shelley’s song for “North American Scum.” Watch a Manchester punk clean up, put on a New Wave suit, and do his best Gary Numan.

(Also, not to add to all the eulogizing going on, but let’s acknowledge that Murphy writes about the highs, lows, and general complications of lived experience better than just about anybody making music in the 21st century, and hope for some more songs, sometime, in some form. The closer from This Is Happening is a devastator, and the shortest eight minute song I can think of.)
