LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy Reveals He Once Snapped At Man Who Criticised His DJ Set

James Murphy, frontman of American dance-rock outfit LCD Soundsystem, has confessed that he snapped at a gig once, and threatened to beat the shit out of a man who didn't enjoy his DJ set.

The apparently short-tempered man told magazine Shortlist that he thought English fans - although grateful for what they’ve done for him and his fans - were the worst-mannered of all, claiming England is ‘the only place where someone will walk up to you and moan in an attempt to become buddies.’

He told the site: “I remember DJing once and this kid came up to me and said, 'This set is so shit,' to try and show me how cool he was. I just grabbed him by the throat and was like, 'You're talking to a fucking stranger. We don't know each other, dude. I am from a fucking farm town, I will beat the shit out of you.' I take criticism every day. You can’t just go up to a stranger and moan. That shit has only happened to me in England.”

Someone should possibly remind Murphy that he may have actually just been ‘shit’, and that the ‘kid’ who told him so was being honest rather than trying to act cool. But then again, he may ‘beat the shit’ out of whoever dares to.
