stateside Drama

just got back in the US of A (with plenty of backblogged paris bits to get to, unsurprisingly) and they're ARRESTING DJs now. no wonder customs started asking questions about my bag full of records ("you acquire all those abroad?" contraband techno, what can I say).

arm yourselves, citizens:
likewise, Chloe just informed me of some bizarre Philly mix drama: Ian St Laurent gave the "South Philly Scum" treatment to the leaked LCD Sounsdsystem track "North American Scum."

but ISL received threats to his family?!:

Drama? Scum? these headlines write themselves. maybe it's time to revoke my James Murphy disco defense [FYI: DFA is backed by EMI now].
