MP3 OF THE WEEK: LCD Soundsystem – No Love Lost mp3

“Two-way mirror in the hall, just to watch everything you do, transmitters hidden in the walls, so they know everything you say is true”

When LCD Soundsystem do a cover it’s usually something special so I was excited by this B-side from their latest single ‘All My Friends’. So far James Murphy has had a go at Harry Nilsson and Siouxsie & The Banshees with spectacular success, now he’s turned his hand to early Joy Division classic ‘No Love Lost’. It’s a fairly faithful cover recreating the brilliant slow building intro but omitting the “Some rare creature in a zoo…” voice over. That voice over on the original seemed heavily influenced by John Cale’s spoken word epic ‘The Gift’ from The Velvet Underground’s ‘White Light/White Heat’ album. Interestingly John Cale has done a brilliant cover of ‘All My Friends’ for LCD Soundsystem’s new 7″.
