Despite the war-referencing name (Death from Above), DFA Records mostly gave the impression of a happy camp.
The news has emerged, however, that LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy is suing Tim Goldsworth – with whom Murphy and Jonathan Galkin started the label in 2001 – for just shy of $94,000, accusing him of “failing to perform services he was paid for, owing outstanding loans, improperly using the company credit card and making unauthorized withdrawals from its bank accounts”.
The lawsuit was filed on Friday March 1 in Manhattan Civil Supreme Court, and claims that “attempts to amicably resolve this matter were rebuffed” by Goldsworthy. As DNAinfo point out, Goldsworthy was reported to have parted ways with the label in 2010, with Galkin claiming to Resident Advisor that “we have had no word from him since he left the United States.”
