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.
