Oh, internet. We love you-- hell, our livelihood depends on you-- but sometimes you get a little carried away. Case in point: a recent BBC News article with the alarming headline "LCD Soundsystem reach end of road", which quotes LCD live member and Hot Chip guy Al Doyle as saying, "I don't think James [Murphy] is going to do anything more under [the LCD Soundsystem] name."
OH NOEZ you might say, and then proceed to Twitter/Tumblr/Facebook message all yr e-pals with the bad news. But wait! All is not lost! Actually, uh, nothing was lost to begin with: "I would like to clarify that LCD have not disbanded," Doyle writes on Hot Chip's website [via NME.com], "nor could the entity be disbanded in the sense that it has always had a revolving cast of players-- it would be like saying that the Fall had disbanded, or Prince has split up."
Continues Doyle, "LCD Soundsystem is James Murphy, and he's allowed to take time off, do other things, and come back, or not come back. And he doesn't have to tell you or anyone else about it. I didn't know if anything was going on with LCD next year, which is the truth, and that's all I should have said, but I gabbled on a bit because that's the way I am and I didn't imagine in million years that anyone would concoct a story out of it...
"Anyway, I should probably stop doing interviews after this, which is already my second chance. But the main point to take away is that more LCD music is in the pipeline, which is surely good news for everybody."
