Sound Check The Juan Maclean Post Show Argument
posted by September 11 at 9:33 AMon
The DFA superstars spliced up big, tight sections of 16th beats and tectonic shifting dance music. Maclean is an incredible theremin player, layering its spooky sound perfectly over the grooves with effects. Nancy Whang from LCD Soundsystem took the thereminís space aged cue and was orbited in her vocals with some slap back delay. Whang is as nice a person as she can be.
After their set, drummer Jerry Fuchs was talking about these Simmons electric drums (the six sided pads) which he runs into a Tama brain. They give off such a bulbous tom sound:
In-ear monitors were then brought up, Maclean chimed in, and the argument ensued. Apparently Maclean once left Fuchs behind in Albuquerque, NM for complaining about sound and threatening to get in-ear monitors. Fuchs has some things to say about it.
Warning: this video contains profanity. Is the argument real?
