James Murphy has spoken to The Hollywood Reporter and mentioned he has some regrets about breaking up LCD Soundsystem. Murphy said, "I don't know if it's a good decision" adding: "And, at times, I wish I wasn't retired. It's a rare thing when a band stops playing together when everybody really still loves each other and everything's fine. So it wasn't like, 'Oh, we have creative differences and we want to move on.'" He then said, "So I regret it in the sense that I like them, and we like each other and we want to make more music, but I don't regret it because... it wasn't sustainable. For anybody."
For their long awaited sophomore record, La Roux may have something special in the pipeline - like working with legendary Chic main man, Nile Rogers.

She's the person that's in my cross-hairs right now." In 2009 we landed La Roux's Elly Jackson's first interview, take a look at that HERE.
