James Murphy will follow Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy as the latest indie icon to turn his hands to brewing coffee.
In an interview with New York Magazine‘s Grub Street blog [via Spinner], the former LCD Soundsystem band member claims that “I make a lot of coffee … For my birthday, my girlfriend got me a training course with the world champion. That’s what I’m going to do when I get back to London … [I'll] just go to a roaster who lives near me and start tweaking beans and temperatures. I thought it would be fun”.
He is, however, apparently only planning to distribute to one Manhattan shop. Wonder if it’ll cost as much as Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy’s blend.
Shut Up and Play the Hits, the film based around LCD Soundsystem’s last ever show at Madison Square Garden last year, recently debuted at the Sundance Film Festival.
