During the band’s final years, Murphy was accompanied by Al Doyle (guitar, percussion — also of Hot Chip), Tyler Pope (!!! / Out Hud) (bass), Nancy Whang (keyboards) and Pat Mahoney (drums). Members that played live with Murphy under the LCD Soundsystem name before this time include Phil Mossman (guitar, percussion) and Phil Skarich (bass).

    I think it's probably a good thing that James isn't my uncle, I'd just disappoint him by being a fucking pleb
