New LCD Soundsystem book to be released
If you're a fan of LCD Soundsystem then you probably have the t-shirt, you most likely went to see the movie, and if you were lucky you saw a show, but now you can own the book. 'LCD' is a collection of photographs (like the one above) taken by Ruvan Wijesooriya over their hugely successful career.

For more information and to see more pictures from 'LCD', head to Power House Books' official site.
