LCD Soundsystem will release a documentary named SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS, based around their farewell show at Madison Square Gardens last year. The doco, which has been directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace, has footage from the farewell show intercut with interviews with James Murphy.
LCD Soundsystem called it quits just over a year ago, playing a run of final shows at Madison Square Gardens. As fitting with the theme of ‘goodbye’ and the insinuation of a final performance (similar to that of a wake after a funeral) the members of LCD Soundsystem wore black and white clothing – the only dress code for the Long Goodbye, and asked the audience members to observe the same sartorial decisions.
The film will premier at Sundance Film Festival, on Sunday January 22.
