The new arraignment is 15 minutes long.
‘LCD Soundsystem were skilled and thoughtful interpreters of others’ work, usually on B-sides, limited releases or the live stage; you don’t need to search hard to find a shoegazey take on Siouxsie and the Banshees’ Slowdive, a committed but oddly Americanised version of Joy Division’s No Love Lost, and recent tributes to Bowie and Prince at Coachella with “Heroes” and Controversy, respectively. However, the last track that the first incarnation of the group officially released – until the sweet but featherlight balladry of Christmas Will Break Your Heart heralded their comeback in December 2015 – was this cover of Carl Craig’s irresistible 1994 second wave Detroit techno beat, first issued by Craig under his Paperclip People alias. A near-instrumental precisely 10 minutes long, it maintained the irresistible, train-like momentum of the original and grafted on a winningly ludicrous falsetto from Murphy towards the finale. Released as a bonus track on This Is Happening, it was awarded the ultimate kudos when Craig reissued it on his own Planet E label, placing LCD Soundsystem among a catalogue that includes such fellow North American electronic visionaries as Moodymann and Kevin Saunderson.’
