DFA's James Murphy Working On "Classic Rock Record"

DFA's James Murphy Working On "Classic Rock Record"
Perhaps it's the result of a little too much Guitar Hero but DFA/LCD Soundsystem head honcho James Murphy has revealed that his next project will be a "classic rock record" with members of the band formerly known as Hockey Night. (Calm down, hosers, don't get too excited, this band will not be called Hockey Night.)

Speaking with BBC6, Murphy gave full disclosure about the collaboration, saying the band are made up of himself on bass, LCD Soundsystem's Pat Mahoney on drums and Hockey Night founders Scott Wells and Paul Sprangers. The forthcoming LP will also feature contributions by members of DFA disco divas Hercules & Love Affair.

Described as "a rock record, a classic rock record," Murphy is currently mixing the full-length, which he expects to be released in the first half of 2009. However, he's currently unsure of what to call the band. "They don’t have a name yet," he said. "They have a lot of names that we argue back and forth about. I think they try to come up with the worst names possible just to wind me up.”
