    Default Death From Above 1979?

    I know they're MSTRKRFT now but is there any chance of them going back to DFA? I've never gotten the chance to see them live, although I've been watching live clips on youtube and it seems like they dont have the same power and adrenaline live as they do on the album. but i could be completely wrong, and most likely are.

    no, but it would be awesome. and they wouldnt go back, AL-P wasnt in DFA 1979.

    i think JFK has stated he wont do that again...

    Anyone know who he beefed with over the DFA name? (trivia)

    Dooon't think its gonna happen.... they don't really like each other. Link

    Now do you and Jesse [Keeler, the other half of Death From Above] still talk to one another?

    ...ahh...[pause]

    If there's nothing to say, there's nothing to say.

    There's nothing to say.
    Plus Sebastien just came out with his own solo album this year... so... yeah. Sucks i know.

    I'm betting Sebastien Grainger & the Mountains to be there.

    Sorry to stink up the thread...

    Yeah they really really don't like each other. During their final shows they would get into arguments onstage. To add to the trivia: the reason they chose "above 1979" as the add-on was because it was the absolute minimum amount of characters needed to be exempt from copyright issues with James Murphy. More trivia: DFA shortened their label from "Death From Above" to the acronym because of 9/11. Seriously.

    AL-P was the producer of DFA.

    I saw them open for NIN and QOTSA on Halloween 2005.....still one of my favorite shows to this day!

    I was at their last show (didn't know it though until later) opening for NIN/QotSA in Calgary. Damn it was awesome!

    MSTRKRFT is cool too though - seeing them in 2 weeks. Curiously, Sebastien is playing 2 days later with Metric

    One of my biggest regrets, musically speaking, is missing DFA1979 when they were in Phoenix - And I don't think they will ever reunite...they really seem to hate each other and seem happy with what they are doing now.

    you lucky shits. first time i heard about them was in summer 06 - by then i thought they were a side-project of MSTRKRFT, not the other way around

    sg + the mountains don't sound that bad, wouldn't mind checking them out if they came for coachella
