sounosvsrém, AUTOMATO Barrowland, Glasgow, Sat 3 Apr

Praise the Lord, what a line-up! Expect every style-obsessed art school kid, each and every Optimo regular, and anyone who just knows good music to be at this, the

soundclash to end all soundclashes.

LCD Soundsystem will be providing premier league live action, although the

brainchild of New York City’s James

Murphy might bear more relevance it we explain he's one half of the DFA production team. That’s the people who brought the

Rapture to power, and are currently

revitalising the very different careers of Liquid Liquid and Britney Spears. Oh yeah, and they’ve also had a hand in the sound of Automato, the latest droppable name in superstyled hip hop and billsharers this


Then, of course, there are 2 Many 0.15. the Belgian brothers who re-energised bootlegging, indie disco and Dolly Parton in one fell swoop, via the ever—dependable As Heard On Radio Sou/wax Part 2 disc. If you have access to-the technology, you can get on the net and try to track down the dozens of other (unauthorised) mixes they’ve completed. If you prefer to do your dancing outside the bedroom, just get along here. Those who caught their first and last Glasgow visit in early 2003 will tell you it's an experience not to be missed.
